I was slow to get on the washi tape train. Now that I’ve been awaken to the wonder of washi, I look for ways to use it so I can justify buying more. (I’m sure no one else has this problem.)
So my first sample uses washi to enhance, cover, and change embellishments. If you look you can see one button plain and one covered with washi tape. I used the same washi to accent the ticket & create a fun little “flag” on a pin.
In the next sample. I use the washi tape as a journaling background, a way to change an ugly embellishment & as a frame. This is only the beginning of uses for washi.
Hope you are able to justify buying some more washi tape soon!

I have been looking at some pins wondering how I was going to use them, and then you come along with washi tape flags. Absolutely perfect! The tape can also be used in conjunction with embedded embossing, which gives an additional dimension to a card front. For an accent, the washi tape goes nicely with metallic tape, again, giving a different approach. Lately, I am looking at journal type notebooks and wondering about using washi tape around the cover edges. Still haven’t figured out if it’s feasible. Thanks for getting the brain moving!
