Jane's July tutorial ...

Hi Everyone, This month I'm going to show you three quick ways to use washi tape.

You will need washi tape, small pieces of scrap cardstock (any colour and size), a length of string/twine, a tag, and a couple of punches you might like to use.

Easy peasy – use your washi to cover the bottom of your tag in strips.


 Cut the overhang off along the edge of the tag.

 

Use whatever you like to add more to the tag (I used a stamped saying and a couple of butterfly stamps and tied on some twine but you could use flowers, rub-ons, buttons - whatever you like or just leave it plain).
 

Punched embellishments

Cover your scrap cardstock with washi and again cut off the overhang.

 

 Use your punches to create your embellishments. You can then jazz these up with some bling or flowers, whatever you like.

Cut short lengths of washi – attach the string across the middle of each piece or attach the wasi across the middle of the string whichever way you find works best for you – do these one at time as it's easier.  Try to keep them evenly space along the string.


 Fold over and press both sides of the washi together trying to keep them even and together.


 Once done use your scissors to cut notches into the bottom of each piece of washi to form the flags.
TIP - Odd numbers work better than even so try to keep them at 3, 5, 7 etc.


And here we have our efforts, ready to add to a layout or card.
