Washi tape has the versatility of patterned paper and can be used in very similar ways, and yet its functionality as tape and transparent quality makes it an especailly fun supply to use! Here are 10 interesting ways we've seen our members use this popular product:
USE IT TO ATTACH SOMETHING. The diagonal orientation of the tape here reminds us of a bulletin board look or an idea saved in a Smash book. There's no need to add adhesive if you don't wish; the tape does the work for you.
Washi tape is used to attach this scalloped fabric piece; the edges hang off the page adding a nice sense of depth.
CREATE A MOOD. A green polka dot or black chevron tape might not scream Christmas to you, but Missy has paired them with red patterned paper to create a festive feel. By combining the washi with paper and stamping she has created a whole range of texture on her page.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ITS TRANSPARENT QUALITY. One shade of washi tape can create different looks! Layer pieces or sections on top of each other to create darker patches. Michelle has even layered other designs behind the pink to mute them a bit. Cool!
LOOP & LAYER IT. What an eye-catching design! We love how this member has challenged herself to use her tape stash; check out more fun ways she's used washi from her profile here.
CREATE A PATCHWORK FRAME. We love the quilt-like look of this page. A great way to give your project a homespun feel!
DIVIDE UP YOUR PAGE. Lydia has used the most simplest of design elements, the line, in an effective and clever way! Washi tape serves as dividers for a pie chart, while serving also to give a small dose of extra pattern.
STITCH OVER IT. The thinness of our favorite masking tape makes stitching through it a piece of cake.
MAKE A HINGE. Lisa Truesdell uses washi tape to make a hinge for a tag; beneath a tag there is memorabilia and hidden journaling. This gives her the ability to squeeze more in on a Project Life spread!
HAVE FUN WITH IT! This layout just looks like it was a blast to create, don't you think? She's not only had fun with different patterns and colors by alternating the styles that come in a washi tape set (a great place to start!), but she's stamped on top of the tape, placed stickers and enamel dots on top all the while balancing her group of photos on the left.
