Do you ever pull out a product and just play with it to see what your imagination could do with it? Well this year I’m on a quest to do just that. Once a month I pull out an inexpensive crafty product and play to find as many ways to use it as I can think of. This month I’m playing with washi tape. While this post is titled 10 ways to use washi, I have more than that to show off.
Here is the video showing it off. If you prefer the text and photo method, read on…
Here is a visual guide to the ways I use the tape in the video. Now some of these tips are best seen live (like creating hinges and pockets) but if you get the gist, then you can go play with your tape! This photo is not in the same order as the video, just an overview of all the techniques.
- Create hinges and tabs
- Create pockets
- Use it for matting photos
- Create photo corners
- Make stripes and plaids
- Do a plaid weave
- Ruffle the tape for lots of texture
- Create monograms
- Makes rows of various tapes tightly packed together and then punch shapes
- Fussy cut to create stickers
- Use thin tapes as journaling lines
- Create pennant banners
