Faux Tapes & Baking!

It’s Friday! Woooooo!
Today I’ve got this tag to show you as its my week to submit videos to Paper Crafters Library
I’ve produced two videos- one on creating faux Tissue Tape ( which the first tag shows examples of) and the second video is about creating faux Washi tape

They’re so easy to create using stamps, inks, tape and adhesive. Perfect for when you need a matching embellishment and best of all- they’re dirt cheap!
If you want to see some of their free to view videos, hop over and check them out. You’ll see the quality of them and if you could see the full range you’d be amazed. It’s like a craftology degree course! Imagine that? Going to University to craft. They’re missing a trick not offering that degree!!

Better go- am baking for tonights party. On the menu? Flourless chocolate cake, coconut and marshmallow cake, banana cake and fruit flapjacks.
See you when I’ve had fun crafting with all my friends! xx

    hmm, do you use regular ink when stamping tape? such a great idea 🙂

      Hey! Thanks for your comment. If you’re making the faux washi tape you need scotch magic tape which give it the ‘look’. For both tapes stamp on thinnish strips of tissue paper. You can use dye ink or Stazon or distress on the tissue paper. Sometimes if your inks are too ‘juicy’ or the texture of paper makes the ink bleed, you may need to stamp off first. For washi, just stick the magic tape straight over the tissue. For the tissue tape, scrunch the tissue paper, flatten and then stick onto double sided tape. Brayering over the top helps with the tape look too. Just trim either side of the double sided tape and use as and when. Hth!
