Handmade Washi Tape Tutorial

 what you will need:
measured cutting mat
masking tape
permanent markers
crafting knife
scissors
 lay out the tape to the length of
the cutting mat.          
trim the ends to keep things
neat.
 start your pattern at the top. it
doesn't matter if it's a little sloppy
as we will be cutting it lengthwise.
i added paper bumpers to keep
my mat clean.
 line your ruler up 1/4" in on the tape.
make sure to keep it nice and straight.
 cut the length of the tape.
repeat, moving 1/4" over
each time.
 now that you have 4
strips of 1/4" tape
with a pattern all the
way down....
 roll it onto empty spools for easy
storage.
 i wanted lots of different patterns
so i rolled two to a spool.
 some other variations:

strawberries
straight stripe





also try:
using colored masking tape
horizontal stripes
mailing stamps
and anything else you can
think of!!
sweethearts! send me pictures of your handmade washi tape!
