Ahhh Tuesday! It has such a lovely ring especially when accompanied by a How To’sday by the queen of tutorials, Charity Becker. Today Charity treats us with some fun tips on how to use those glorious spools of Washi tape that are adorning our scrappy collections.

Washi tape is a fun new craze and I’m having loads of fun playing with it. The bright colors make it a natural accent for craft paper. For this card I choose a sheet of craft paper with printed designs, but it would be just as easy to stamp designs onto craft paper with black ink.

Step 1: Using a craft knife cut out portions of the printed images.


Step 2. Trace the edge of the patterned paper onto a white piece of cardstock, then trace the cut-out areas.


Step 3: Place washi tape over the coresponding areas on the white cardstock. If the pencil makings are too dark, lightly erase so that they won’t show through the tape.


Step 4: Cut the white cardstock so it fits completely behind the patterned paper. Embellish bits of the design with floss or twine. Adhere the white cardstock to the patterned paper.

Adhere patterned paper to a card blank. Wrap the edges of the card with a corresponding color of washi tape.


I made several of these cards as end-of-year thank you notes for my children’s teachers. The inside reads, “You brighten so many lives.”
