diy: quick cardmaking project with washi tape



on monday morning on my way to work i saw a box on a bench by the roadside with piles of books put there to take along. i just quickly scanned the contents of the box and found a folded map of some region in germany (i think one i've never been to). i just thought to myself it might come handy once i decide to try some mixed media again.

just a day later, there was a window of time in which the little man was happily playing with his duplos, and i had finished a major part of the housework, so i got some blank cards and envelopes, the washi tape that i bought together with my friend anja and haven't had a chance to play with, and some paints.


i cut out random shapes from the map, added some details with paint here and there, and finished everything off with some strips of washi tape. i love quick, creative and satisfying diy projects!
music sheets and old book pages are other favourites of mine to use in paper crafts. i'm now on the lookout for other craft projects that use washi tape. that tape is so versatile and i love how easy it is to tear and apply.

have you ever made something using washi tape???

Such pretty tape! It's called washi tape? Well, I just learned something! I have seen pretty tape before, but didn't know what it was called. Now I have a serious case of tape envy! :)

It's such funny timing that you should mention washi - today a new trends post went up on Aussie Scrap Source with a page I'd done using loads of washi :) - http://aussiescrapsource.typepad.com/aussie_scrap_source/2012/03/2012-trends-washi-tape.html

Fun stuff!

These are great. I've had my eye on several washi tapes for some time, but haven't purchased any. Didn't think to use if for cards. Have seen it used for taping gifts or taping (temporarily) art to a wall.
