Ten Things-Washi Tape (die cuts covered in washi)

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Welcome to this week's Ten Things post for Practical Scrappers!  I know I have been saying this every week, but I'm really excited to share this week's challenge with you.  Because its glorious and beautiful, comes in all different colors and patterns, and lots of companies are selling it.  Can you guess what it is?  It's washi tape!!

Since I've been on a kick with my Slice lately, I immediately knew I wanted to give die cuts covered in washi tape a try.  I don't have tons and tons of washi tape (maybe 10 rolls) but I do love it and try to use it as much as possible.  I didn't photograph a tutorial because this really was so simple.  All you have to do is lay down some washi tape on a piece of cardstock and cut your die cut.  That's really about it!

Products used: card blank: Hobby Lobby; patterned paper-October Afternoon (flowers), Studio Calico (graph circles and doily pattern), and Crate Paper (chevron); 'Truly' die cut-Slice by Making Memories; washi tape-The Plaid Barn; mini alphabet letters-lilybeedesign; spray mist-Ranger; banner stamp-Elle's Studio; photo corner stamp-Unity; corner rounder-WRMK; other (craft supply)-buttons, cardstock, ink.
I created this card for my mother-in-law, who has been greatly helping us while Alex is on crutches.  I was so inspired by this layout by the super-amazing Paige Evans that I just had to try it out on my own.  I really do love how it turned out.  And the best part of creating die cuts covered in washi tape is that the negatives are so awesome that you can save them and use them for another project.  Above is the negative cut from the 'Truly' word and below is another one I tried of a butterfly.  (washi tape also from The Plaid Barn).

I definitely plan on creating more and more of these and maybe creating enough to have a stash set aside for future projects.  And now, make sure you hop on over to Practical Scrappers to check out what the rest of the ladies created using washi tape.

  1. Great card Kelly! I love using washi tape! My favorite is covering cardstock on both sides & punching a square. Then make a pinwheel out of it. I will have to start using my negatives more. Off to check out the other projects.

  2. so cool! I've used punches doing this, but I love the title idea.

  3. What a great use for washi! Love this idea and will need to try it!
