If you've seen tuts on DIY Washi Tape before, I applaud you. Big chances are, you love to be budget-friendly like me without sacrificing on the prettiness of things.Hi-5! This tutorial goes an extra step further and gives you clever tips about the ins-and outs of this super-sweet DIY.
If you've seen my free Giftwrap post here, you'll see how I came up with this nifty lil' project. I had a bit of my own designed wrap left over which I didn't have the heart to throw away since the patterns were just so pretty. I decided to jump on the chance to makes some washi tape to utilize every last bit *wink*
And now sweets,here's how to go about it:
1.A roll of wax paper
2.Double-sided tape (not pictured)
3.Scotch (magic) tape
6.Ruler and a pencil
7.A cutting Mat
*PRO TIP-No leftover giftwrap? Don't stress! Let your imagination run wild and use up pretty pages of old magazines, fabric scraps and colorful shopping bags!
1.Cut your paper into equally-measured-width strips.
2.Lay out the wax paper and along one edge affix the double-sided tape.(Wax paper because it can be easily detached when using your own tape!)
3.Place your strips aligning with and over the double sided tape continuing as one length till all the strips are one whole really freakin' huge strip!
4.Now trim that freakin' huge strip again (with the double-sided tape and wax paper layer inderneath)*
*PRO TIP-Before you trim again, you might wanna add an extra layer of magic tape on top. This saves the washi tape from wear and tear and makes it liquid-proof!
5.Now roll that baby up and secure with a bit of magic tape in the end to stop it from unfurling.
Here, you can see my three new musketeers with the rest of my collection! :)
