Making My Own Washi Tape

Card made with Homemade Washi Tape

According to the City Crafter Blog,  Washi tape is all the craze today.  You can buy from several sources or you can make your own which is what I did.  There are several tutorials and videos to learn how to do. Just google and find the way to make your own.   I viewed several "How To's" and made mine with tissue papers and Scor-Tape. I never throw away tissue papers from gifts or from wrapped purchases so I have a lot of tissue to use. On the left is a photo of some I made with half inch scor-tape and a 6"x6" square of scor-tape. They were all made with print tissue except the one with strawberries was white tissue that I stamped and colored.  I need to get some 1" tape which I think I'd prefer.
City Crafter is challenging us to use Washi or Tissue tape on our projects ... it can be store bought or handmade ... but there is a catch are only allowed to use 2 other items with the tape on your projects!  On my card I used 2 strips of tape....a 1/2 " strip and a 2" strip that I made of a black and white pattern tissue paper. The paper is shown behind my card in the photo above. My 2 other items used are ribbon and a stamp.

Your pretty Washi tape looks great on your lovely card. I didn't have any patterned tissue paper so I used plain tissue paper, stuck it down to the tape and then stamped it.
Now I will have to go look for some pretty tissue paper! :)
