More Washi Ideas!

photo-122Good morning!

Flying in with one last washi idea. This is a simple one. Washi has a lovely property in that it coils easily & you can gently secure little sections of it to create these streamers.

The rabbit is using the ‘Hunny Bunny’ set & I’ve created the sentiment using Milo’s ABC’s & Critters In The Snow (a partial sentiment from that one) from Lawn Fawn.

I simply drew out a hat shape, cut the brim away after colouring & slit the inside rim and slotted the bunny into it. I trimmed away his feet (ouch) and mounted it onto the card using 3D foam pads.

By stamping and white heat embossing the sentiment, this helped lift it and I used more Cosmo Cricket adhesive glitter paper.

I’ve stamped the stars (from my stamp set) using Stazon Gold, trimmed them out & added them to the card. Just trim off tiny slithers of washi, coil them & press down onto the card. This is my last entry for Gallery Idol too! You can relax now..no more washi for a little while (in theory!!)

Hope this gives you some other ideas for how to use washi tape- it really is a fab crafting staple. I got some gorgeous rolls in a pack of 4 from Sainsburys (of all places!)- do look out for it. Paperchase are selling lots too. I use them for securing down dies in my Xpress & for securing masks when spraying or adding embossing paste.

Hope you’ve enjoyed the past 3 ideas. I’m off this afternoon to do a demonstration for a craft club, so will have to dash. Will tell you all about it in the next post

See you when I’ve crammed my car with the crazy amount of stuff you need to take when doing a demo! xx

    Good grief, you have mad crafting skills. Simply brilliant. That hat looks like a store-bought embellishment…so clever. The washi trick is one I’ll definitely try. Darling card.

      Ha ha. It took me a few mins to realise it was you. I was thinking ‘why is this person saying sorry, thankyou, sorry’? So strange and then I realised it was YOU! I’m so dense. Batman is cool- quips by him are welcome!!
