Surprise! The Sweet team’s goal is to get back into sharing educational blog posts with you and there was no better way than to jump right in and share some fun ways to use our latest washi. Sweet Stamp Shop has grown from being just a stamp store; the product line has now grown to dies, stickers and washi, too! For the next month, keep an eye on the blog every Wednesday for – are you ready for it? #washiwednesday – blog posts showing you how to get more out of your washi tape.
Yes, bows!!! Bows are probably my FAVORITE thing to add to my scrapbook layouts, but they’re cute as a little pop of color on planners, cards and paper clips! So, let’s make some washi tape bows!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- a scrap piece of white carstock
- washi tape
And that’s all! I know!
and then fold the flaps in half again, so you have an ‘M’ shape:
Next, using your pencil, draw a sort of ‘bottle neck’ shape, and cut out along the lines.
This is the shape you’ll see, once you unfold it!
Use your strongest adhesive, and tape the flaps behind the middle of the bow shape.
Then, cut one of the strips of washi thin, and fold it three times to create the little part that goes in the center of the bow, like this:
At this time, you can either use another strip of either the pattern of washi to create the ribbon parts that are under the bow. Fold your desired strip in half, and then, using your pencil again, draw a fishtail banner on the edges and another bottle neck pattern at the folded part:
What are some of your favorite way to use washi tape?
For Samantha, she loves using strips of washi on the sides of her cards, under photos on scrapbook layouts and in her planner, too!
