How to Make ... Washi Tape!


Are you like me and just can't bring yourself to spend a lot of money on things that even though they are really pretty, will probably just sit there for ages without use? 

I've always loved the look of washi tape but find it so expensive and hard to justify. So, I decided to get creative and make my own.. 

All you need is some double sided tape and tissue paper! Too easy!

  6. you are too smart for your own good. I've seen fancy tissue paper with designs already printed. This is a great idea.

  7. Oh how lovely! Washi tape is reaaalllly expensive here in Denmark... So it's great to know how to make it yourself, in whatever design one may like! :)

  8. I've been thinking of making my own wash tape with masking tape and ink, sprays,paint and stamps. I love this idea too! I've also read to use wrapping paper, first aid tape...the ideas are endless.
