Washi tape idea

Hi there, it’s Pam here.

Today I thought I’d show you a simple use for using up some of your wash tape. Most of us scrapbookers have a bit of an addiction to washi tape it seems, so it’s always good to think of different ways to use it.

So today I used my black and white chevron washi tape to make the title of my layout, using the Hello Today collection from Kaisercrafts:2015-01-04 13.39.35_edited-1

Here’s what I did:

First I cut a small piece of card stock to fit the letter of my die: I used Sissix alphabet dies, but these dies from Kaisercraft would work just as well. 2015-01-04 12.09.03_edited-1

Then I covered the card stock with Chevron Washi tape, taking care to match up my chevrons:2015-01-04 12.10.25_edited-1

I then placed it washi side down onto the die, and ran it through my cuttlebug to cut the letters:

Here’s how the letters look on my layout:2015-01-04 13.39.43_edited-1

I think these would look fabulous on a layout about zebras – maybe a safari or zoo layout!

My layout is about how much I love my down jacket. I bought it three years ago and have lived in it for the last three winters. It is so cosy, so light, and so comfortable!! I have used a small envelope into which I put the story of the jacket.  I used a black pen to add some dashed lines around the layout. This helps to define certain areas and to pull the design together in a cohesive way.2015-01-04 13.39.47_edited-1

I also love how some of the die cuts seem made for this story:2015-01-04 13.39.35_edited-2

What ideas do you have for using your wash tape?
