BRAND NEW Washi Tape, Masking Stickers, Baker's Twine, and More!
I'm beyond excited to tell you about some of the fabulous NEW goodies in the shop! First, WASHI TAPE! Yes, I'm addicted to the stuff, and you can thank Bianca Mandity for that. You know she does the most awesome journal spreads, Washi Tape being one of her staples. So, yes, we now have Washi Tape. AND LOTS of it. Over 65 different patterns with the great prices you've come to expect from us!
And how about some yummy Baker's Twine! Great for gift packaging of course, but also awesome on cards, journal spreads, and yes, even ATCs! (see below!)
Our new goodies are all so yummy that I couldn't wait to play. So I made this sweet ATC! I started with one of our 1/16" Chipboard ATC bases and quickly painted it white with acrylic paint. I added a few strips of Washi Tape toward the bottom and then layered a dollie from the Hello Dollie Bodies Collage Sheet over the tape. The cute dress is from our Doll Dresses Collage Sheet! At the top I drew a "string" using a fine black Sharpie and then cut out little flags using several different Washi Tapes. The banner was so much FUN to make and the possibilites are endless. I didn't use a template, I just cut the flags eyeballing them to make them relatively the same size. Best of all the flags took just a tiny piece of tape! Finally I wrapped some Purple Baker's Twine around the card and tied a bow. Super easy, super sweet. Washi Tape and Baker's Twine is GREAT for collage and altered art too.
And how about some ultra fun Masking Stickers?
Just like Washi Tape, the stickers are awesome for journaling, collage, gift packaging, cards, and so much more! The above stickers are from the Ver. Pastel Sticker Set.
With Washi Tape and Baker's Twine your packages will never be boring! The above stickers are from the Ver. Paper Sticker Set.
Eeeekkkk... how about making a super sweet 3-D garland banner? I love using the tape to make flat banners like I did on my ATC (would also be awesome on a journal spread) or make one to hang! This banner was created with the Ver. Basic Sticker Set and Baker's Twine, however you can also use any of the Washi Tapes too! Simply cut a piece of Washi Tape twice as long as your desired flag, fold the tape over the twine, sticking the two adhesive sides together, and then cut your flag shape! You could do triangles, "show ribbon ends", or even rectangles looks adorable. I'll bet you can think of even more too. You can check out all the NEW goodies Here! Some of the tapes have limited stock so better grab them up while you can! xo
