I have a lot (236 rolls to be exact) of washi tape, just a little bit addicted I'd say but really I can stop any time............
Although I do have that much I still find it difficult to find the right tape for the right project, so ............ lets have a look just how easy it is to just make your own.
Here is what I used.....
- Baking Paper
- Double Sided Tape
- Various Patterned Stamps
- Permanent Ink Pads
- Distress Ink Pads
- Decorative Edge Punch
First you need to stick a length of double sided tape to the shiny side of the baking paper, like the picture above. Make sure you use baking paper and not wax paper as the stamping won't stick to the wax paper.
Then you can cut the paper into strips, this can be done after decorating the strips or before, as you can see I chose to do it before I decorated the strips.
Then using various stamps and inks go crazy......... decorate each strip as much or as little as you like. You can keep the backgrounds plain or as I have done lightly run a distress ink pad over them to create color.
And here is what I came up with, I even used a border punch on the bottom one.
Well that's it..........Very Easy, and the sky is the limit with what you can come up with and no one will ever have anything like it!
