Craft: Washi Tape Frame Cards

washi tape kid card craft 2I always like to have a few extra cards on hand for birthdays, thank-you, etc. That way they’re ready to go if I have any last minute special occasions to celebrate. It also saves me an extra trip to the store which is always a good thing. One way I keep my cards well stocked is by making them. And these washi tape frame cards are perfect for just that. They’re quick to make and easy to alter for different celebrations.

Supplies:

Art work –  clippings of postcards, cards, magazines, etc.

White card stock

Glue dots or glue

Washi tape in coordinating colors

Scissors

2.  Place tape around image to make frame.  I found it was easier to overlap all the tape so it made a (#) shape.  Then I just trimmed off the excess tape.

3.  Depending on the size of the image, add a second frame to overlap the first.

DIY Washi Tape Spider Web

washi tape spider web wall artSince we moved into our new house, I haven’t had a chance to decorate the living room. So, I decided to use that to my advantage and make the wall my personal canvas.  Good plan, right?  I got out my favorite craft medium (washi tape) and created this oversized spider web. The web was easy to make, it just took a little time cutting/applying all the tape (about 45 minutes).  If you want to try something like this on your wall, I’ve provided simple directions below.

Supplies

Regular width size roll of black washi tape – I used almost the entire roll for this project

Thin width roll of black washi tape – I used the whole roll for this project

Washi Tape Spider Web Directions

2.  With thin washi tape, place one piece in the wedge (refer to fig 2).

3.  Add a second piece of tape (refer to fig. 3).

4.  Repeat steps 2 and 3 to fill in all the wedges.  Continue to do this, making a larger ring outside of each ring until the web is complete.

*Washi tape is low tack and should come off your walls easily without ruining the paint.
