A trio of Washiness!

Ok, I made that up but as a word, it does a good job of describing the three cards I’m sharing with you today!!  I haven’t ever dared to enter the Gallery Idol contest before but for some reason I thought I would have a go this year!  The theme for the “open auditions” is to use Washi or fabric tape in “cool/creative/gorgeous ways”!  Well, I don’t know if these cards fit the brief but I quite like how they turned anyway!  I actually only own about 5 rolls of washi tape – it wasn’t a trend that I really embraced – but I have to say – I loved playing with it!  I particularly like it’s translucent quality which lent itself well to my first card:


My second card features my favourite red polka dotty washi in the form of a little birthday banner!

And my third and final entry uses the washi tape as decorative paper and was die cut with my favourite Avery Elle die.


If you haven’t taken a look at the gallery of entries this year then you should check it out – who knew there were so many ways to use Washi Tape??!!!  

I’m afraid I can’t link to the rolls of washi tape I used as I can’t remember where I bought them or who makes them!!


  1. I totally fell in love with the idea of the band-aid. I use washitape a lot, but this idea is really cool and creative. It inspired me to make a band-aid-card too, I hope you don’t mind. Off course I added a link to your blog, to show where my inspiration came from. 🙂 Greetings, Miranda
