Fun with washi tape!

I cannot get enough washi tape...& have collected tons over the last few years, so thought is was about time & came up with a few ideas on how to use it in creative ways on a scrapbook page. This page was published in the Papercrafts & Scrapbooking 2014 Scrappers Handbook special issue

Washi tape ideas:
  1. Pointed petal folded flower
  2. Little folded origami style hearts
  3. Borders & page edges using overlapping tape in different widths
  4. Chevron detailing on top left corner of left page

Stitching in the center of the chevrons, masks any rough torn edges. 


A wood veneer heart makes the cutest flower center. 


Machine stitching the row of hearts give great texture & adheres them to the page.

I know these ideas barely touch the surface of what one can do. If you have any ideas...I am always keen to learn new tricks...so please share them with me.

Thanks for stopping by!!
