10 Things you can do with: Washi Tape

So you caved and bought a roll (or two or three). You brought it home and now it's sitting in your stash. What's a girl to do with washi tape anyway?
Here are ten ideas to get you started: 

1. Coordinate it with your embellishments
Practical Scrapper Jenny embellished her washi tape with coordinating buttons. 

2. Make custom embellishments
Practical Scrapper Charity wrapped white cardstock with washi tape then used Cuttlebug Dies to cut the cardstock into various sized squares.

3. Frame a layout
Practical Scrapper Cathy used various designs of Washi Tape to frame her page.

4.  Create a scene
Practical Scrapper Erin used washi tape to make the sun rays, and the grass in her layout.

5. Make die cuts from it
Practical Scrapper Julie used washi tapes to alter a paper clip, to make roses, butterflies and a bird house using her Cuttlebug.

6. Make a chevron
Practical Scrapper Audrey Yeager folded her washi tape to create the large zig zag pattern shown on this page.    She has created a tutorial for this technique HERE.

7. Make coordinating flowers
Practical Scrapper Alison used 3 different washi tapes to make the large flower embellishment on her layout. She then covered scraps of card stock with more of the same washi tapes and used her punches to create the additional embellishments.

8. Create a background pattern with it
Practical Scrapper Christa used several coordinating washi tape lengths to create a mat for her photo and a base for her design. She tore the edges for visual texture too.

9. Make a rosette
Practical Scrapper Karen used washi tape to make rosette embellishments.

 10.Make a title
Practical Scrapper  Kimberly Congdon used her washi Tape to create a bold title.

Hope you're inspired by these fabulous ideas!
