For our March Team swap the theme was to use Washi Tape or Designer Paper and make it the star of your card. I wanted to use Washi Tape as I don't tend to reach for it as often as I would like to. So I browsed and searched for an idea I could use that hadn't been done before. I found a card that used banner punches as the main focus and thought I could do the same thing with Washi Tape! So here is my card:
Isn't it cool? I used the Cherry on Top Designer Washi Tape and the Cherry on Top DSP stack for the largest layer too. They're both on the retired list! See that here. 2015-16 retiring list
How I did this was to fold a strip of Washi Tape over my white Baker's twine and press the ends together lightly. Then I used my paper snips to cut a banner end in the Washi Tape.
**Tip: To get even ends when you are cutting a banner shape do this: Snip up straight into the middle of the paper or Washi Tape first; about 1/4 - 1/3" for this small of a piece (longer if you're cutting a wide banner). Then starting from each corner of your piece you will cut to that center cut, doing this on both sides. If that doesn't make sense to you watch some of my video's; I have shown this technique on a few of them and will try to do it again sometime soon.
