Washi Tape Heart

Washi Tape Heart Card

I love a clean and simple card, and this Washi Tape Heart Card is so simple to make.

To make the Washi Tape Heart Card…

  • Create the cut-out heart layer by cutting various sizes of hearts on a 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ piece of white cardstock.  I used a Silhouette Cameo die-cut machine*.  (You can also use punches or dies to create the hearts.)
  • Center the cut-out heart layer onto a white 5″ x 7″ card and lightly traced the hearts with a pencil.
  • Cover the heart outlines with several different strips of coordinating washi tape pieces.
  • Use a tape runner to adhere to the cut-out heart layer onto the front of the card, aligning it with the washi tape.

A Clean and Simple Valentines Day Card.  

Just stamp a simple greeting onto the front of the card,

or you could cut the words out of red glossy craft vinyl as I did. 

I’m glad my husband doesn’t read my blog.  

This card will make a perfect Valentine’s Day card for him.

I want to share with you the perfect organizer for holding washi tape.

The small three-drawer organizer* from Deflecto was made with washi tape in mind.

Each of the three drawers are divided and can hold a lot of washi tape.

The small three-drawer organizer* is also great for holding small ink pads and paintbrushes.

Grand Canyon Adventure & “Roughin’ It” Shadowbox Frame

In January, after the Creativation Show in Phoenix, we took a little mini vacation.

We had decided earlier to visit Sedona and in a spur of the moment decision

decided to take a day trip to the Grand Canyon.

Neither of us had been and it was on our bucket list.

The day was beautiful and the views were AMAZING!

If you ever get the opportunity to visit the Grand Canyon, I suggest you go.

You won’t be disappointed.

For my Xyron Design Team Project this week, we partnered up with Paper House Productions.

I picked the Paper House Productions Great Outdoors Camping Kit*.        (*affiliate link)

I knew it’d be perfect for my Grand Canyon pictures.

Interesting Fact… I’ve never camped a day in my entire life. (and proud of it)           

Even it you don’t go camping, you’ve got to admit this Great Outdoors Washi Tape Set is cute.

“My idea of roughing it is a bad hotel room!”

This what I tell people whenever they talk about camping.  (it’s not for me)

To make the “ROUGHIN’ IT” shadow box frame…

Products Used:     (*affiliate link)

Directions…

  1. Remove the glass from the shadowbox frame to create a ledge for adding small found treasures.  (removing glass is optional…just a personal preference)
  2. Print the saying “My idea is…”  onto one of the scenic papers from the “Great Outdoors” kit and cut it to 6″ x 6″.  For extra dimension, I used my  Xyron Mega Runner* to adhere the layer onto green mat-board.
  3. Cut a 9″ x 9″ green gingham background from the paper crafting kit and adhere the printed paper to the center of the green gingham background.
  4. Use the 4″ x 4″ “ROUGHIN’ IT” square from the “Great Outdoor Tags” scrapbook paper and adhere it onto mat-board for extra dimension.  Adhere to center of the printed scenic square.
  5. Add the 3D tent sticker over the tent pictured in the “roughin’ it square” .
  6. Add 3D lamp and leaf to embellish.
  7. Insert into shadow box frame.

Create a Simple Vase Centerpiece

Washi Tape Vase and Flowers 2

Want to make a great impression but don’t have a lot of time? 

Here’s a quick and easy centerpiece project for your next party or gathering?

Washi Tape and Vase

I put together this simple vase using Washi Tape I received from Little B LLC

and an inexpensive dollar store cylinder vase.

TIP:  I drew a line with a permanent marker halfway down the vase to use as a starting point to keep everything neat and all my lines straight.  Simply wrap the vase with the washi tape.  (it’s that easy)    It only takes a few minutes to create an elegant look.

Washi Tape Vase Close Up

Next…I filled it with fresh flowers cut from my garden.

Or pick up a bouquet at the grocery store.

It would be great centerpiece vase for Weddings, Showers or any special gatherings.

It’s a temporary idea with elegant results. 

Here’s the list of the Little B Decorative Tape Used:

  • 100435 Silver Foil Black Pin Stripe
  • 100562 Gold Foil Hearts
  • 100047 Blk w/Sm Wht Polka Dots
  • 100443 Gold Foil Toile
  • 100344 Black and White Stripe
  • 100011 Damask Black/White
  • 100563 Gold Foil Love

A special thanks to Little B for sending the washi tape to work with.

Cigar Box Washi Tape Holder

How to Make a Cigar Box Washi Tape Holder 2790

Making Creative Storage for my ever growing collection of Washi Tape.

I have a small, growing collection of Washi Tape.

In addition to all it’s many uses, I find that they are just pretty to look at.

Previously, I had all my washi tape gathered in a canning jar, although pretty…

I found myself dumping the jar every time I wanted to use one.

Being on a “old drawer” kick, I decided to make a small washi tape holder using an old cigar box.

Materials 2764

I used two sheets of scrapbook paper from Carta Bella’s “Warm & Cozy” collection.

basic supplies:  craft knife, cutting mat, craft glue, double stick tape roller and a metal label holder, black marker.

pieces 2767

To Make a Cigar Washi Tape Holder:

  • Cut the lid off the cigar box.  Measure and cut the lid into two strips to fit inside your box as dividers.
  • Remove excess loose paper from box.
  • TIP:  Use a black permanent marker to color the inside corners of your box.  This will help keep  any white from the box from showing.
  • Cover box with scrapbook paper.
  • Adhere paper over both dividers.
  • Apply craft glue onto bottom and sides of dividers and put into place.

Cigar Box Washi Tape Holder 2808
