Make Your Own Washi Tape?! .........Yes Please!

Sorry I've been a bit absent. Busy last couple of weeks in my family.

Anway, I don't really have a lot of time to post today, but I wanted to share this fun little tutorial I found on YouTube and what I made with it. It was so easy!

I haven't really invested much in washi tape. Because I don't think I'll ever use a full roll of one design. I don't want all of my pages or projects to look the same. That's why I never buy paper stacks either. Too many of one pattern. Or, even worse, a bunch that I don't even like.

I digress.  I found this fun and really simple little video from Beckie Lehman on how to make your own washi tape yesterday and decided to give it a go.......Totally Worked!


Here is the fruits of my labor. Isn't that fun?! It probably requires a bit of advanced planning due to drying time. But I could totally wip up a bunch using all of my lovely scraps that I can't bare to throw away :(

Hope this post inspires you. If you got this far, please leave a comment!

Sorry to be so late visiting but I've been away from my computer most of the week and weekend! I love this idea and am so glad you shared the Youtube video link. I'm with you, I don't think I could use an entire roll of washi tape. However, paper stacks are a different thing altogether. lol I have some that are 2 or 3 years old and I'm still using them. Amazingly, the patterns I didn't seem to like when I bought the stack now seem to be exactly what I want now! Since I pretty much use up whatever I have, they've been a good investment for me.
