Only time will tell...Valentine Printable


I found these cute candy watches the other day at the dollar store.  I loved these as a kid and begged my mom to buy me one at the store.  Do you remember them?? Candy necklaces, lipstick and bracelets. They were the best.  Well my little miss saw them and wanted them to.  And for only a buck who can say no?  So I came up with this sweet, easy valentine for her to help make. I used one of my favorite things... Washi Tape!

Washi Tape Ornaments




I love Washi Tape!!  I love to make projects with Washi Tape.  It is inexpensive and really packs a punch!  this season I decided to make a Washi tape Ornaments.

What you need:
Washi Tape (Michaels has great new festive tapes this season.  Just ab out any Christmas color you can think of, even gold and silver)
Foam core ( I get mine at the dollar store)
Exact-o Knife
Modge Podge
Frame
Ribbon
Opt: Vinyl saying

I first took an old frame I had and covered the glass with white paper. Missed this picture but you can just imagine it.

Next I found some ornament shapes on the Internet and printed them.  I flipped them wrong side up and covered the paper with washi tape.  Then cut them out.

Take some modge podge and glue the ornaments to a piece of foam core.  I got mine at the dollar store. Let the glue dry. Putting them on the foam core makes the jump off the page.  Not so flat.

Once the glue is dry use an Exact-o knife and cut around the edge of the ornaments. To give my ornaments a little sparkle and texture I used glitter glue pens to dot the polka dots, and lines on the washi tape. It is hard to see in the pictures but in person they look great.

Once your ornaments are cut out, place them on your frame.  I played a little with the placement until I liked it.


Add some ribbons for strings and bows with glue dots.


Once I got this far I thought I would be happy but I decided to add the Phrase Merry & Bright to my frame.  I think it finished it off perfect!!! I just love how it turned out.

Patriotic Pinwheels {Washi} style

I have been racking my brain at what I wanted to do for my 4th of July Mantel.  I have had a few things in mind but it needed some finishing touches. I was blog hoping the other day and found 52 Mantels.  I saw Emily's all paper mantel and loved her flowers on the wall.  It totally gave me the idea why not use pinwheels. So I started looking for paper.  When I couldn't find what I wanted I thought "I have all this washi tape.  What if I ..." and there it was. Just what I needed to finish my Mantel.  Washi Tape Pinwheels. So here you go.

Washi Tape Frame

While searching the thrift store I cam across this terrible looking frame that was screaming for a make over.

Pretty Ugly huh?  I took the art work out and went to work.
A fresh coat of white paint.   It took about 4 coats. Then I added a little Washi love to the inside of the frame.  The washi tape was the perfect width to match the inside frame.

 
I was initially going to use this frame in my craft room until I remembered I had this great printable I made last summer.  I printed it out and the colors were perfect for each other.  So now it is my new frame for my summer mantel. Here is the link to the Summertime printable.

Washi Tape Coupon holder


I have been thinking about another Washi Project.  I found these Coupon file envelope thingy's at Michael's along with some more Washi tape.So here it is!



Supplies:
Washi Tape
Accordion folder
I found these in the $1 section at Michaels
optional:  sticker letters or vinyl


Here is the Washi Tape I found at Michaels. 
The Brand is Recollections and they call it Crafting Tape.
My other Washi Tape is from Target and Mindy Maes Market.


I just cut the tape into strips and layered it on the folders.
It took me about 5 minutes.


Next I used my Silhouette and cut letters out to spell Receipt and Coupons. I layered them over the Washi Tape.


A great little folder for my coupons and receipts.
A little Pizazz in my Purse.

Washi Tape Bracelets

I have the cutest neighbor girls.  She is  8 years old came up with this one. I just had to share.  After making these my 4 year old was thrilled.  She has been wearing them around like a princess. They are cute easy and you are not broken hearted when they are ready to throw a way.  I was inspired by this blog post I found on pintrest: Sewing in no mans land. And wonder woman of course!



Supply List:
Empty toilet paper roll
Washi tape
Duct tape
any kind of lovelies; stickers, jewels, flowers whatever you like.
Start off with an empty toilet paper tube.  

Cut in Half and up the center. So it looks like a letter "C"

Start wrapping with Washi Tape. I did mine short end to end.  But you can do whatever.  Wrap your entire TP roll.


Next I cut a piece of duct tape the lenght of the inside of the toilet paper roll.  Stick it to the inside.  I use the duct tape to give the bracelet some stability and to hold the shape.


Cover in whatever {Lovelies} you would like.  We used jewel stickers.

This is a great rainy day or summer activity for your kiddos or to use for a Halloween costume for boys or girl super hero cuffs.  The creativity is endless.  Mix or match, make shapes and designs with your washi tape.  Just let your kiddos create!
