DIY Washi Tape

Another great creative idea from Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday challenge this week - make your own Washi tape from stamps, double sided sticky tape and tissue paper. That Nichole is SO clever!

I was asked to make a 'congratulations on passing your driving test' card in a hurry this week (did no one think she would pass!!) so took the opportunity to enter the MIM challenge again. I did have a roll of 1" wide tape but its a pretty cheap make and wasn't easy to use but I'm fairly happy with the result. A roll of good quality tape would make the job easier next time I think.

And I might also have found it easier if my cat Sausage hadn't decided he wanted to sit just here in the middle of my desk! Poor Sausage lost his sight this year so he's become a little spoilt and I tend to let him do what he likes now - especially as he has to be locked in the house at night and when I'm at work to stop him getting lost or knocked down.

Supplies: Papertrey Ink: Enjoy the Ride stamp set and die; Waltzing Mouse Stamps: Off Beat Backgrounds

  1. Excellent card! Love your idea for this theme using the VW. Poor Sausage and our dear German Shorthair, Luke have something in common. Very poor eyesight now. Glad we have a fenced in yard for him or he'd just follow his nose with all the scents that drift through on the wind!

  3. Great card, Ann!
    Thanks for the comment you left on my blog! I wasn't having a lot of success with my BB#3 with PTI cardstock, so I switched to patterned paper instead. I also try to have my die face down, as close to the far edge of my cuttlebug as possible and with a metal shim and an extra sheet of thin cardboard, I run it through twice. It's a lot of work, but the end results are worth it! Hope this helps!

  10. One of my old cats lost his sight and the vets told me that so long as I didn't turn the house upside down and re arrange all the furniture he would be fine and he was.Hugs Mrs A.
