WASHI TAPE and CHIPBOARD Tutorial...

I love using chipboard pieces.  Occasionally, however, they do seem a little dull.  No matter how cute the shape.  I look at them and think wish you had a cute pattern.  I started thinking I might be able to achieve a fun, unique look to my chipboard pieces with a little of that fabulous, magical, make my heart jump tape:).  

You know you love it, too.  
Washi tape addict;).

Here is how I did the transformation:

 
 
Picked out some of my favorite patterns.
The more mixy-matchy the better!

 
 
Start taping them down.  You can angle the tape, too.  It gives you different widths of different patterns, which is a really sweet effect!

 
 
Use your cutting knife to carefully cut out your shape.  You can fold over little pieces that might be jagged.  After all, it is tape, so it will stick down to the sides!

 
 
Turn your piece over and squeal at its new found cuteness:).

 
 
Now find a fun project for it.  I made a tiny page in my small Smash book...Smashed about my dream to open an arts and crafts studio someday!

 
 

Hope you enjoyed!

  18. Hi Krista.
    I apologise for not commenting much for a while, I have been rather poorly and then it was time for my son to return from Uni and I found it harder and harder to get through my favourite blogs. I have stopped by to read, sometimes a paragraph at a time on my phone, but had to see what you have been up to at least!!
    I adore this idea and it really has created a fabulous smash page. Hold on to your dream sweetheart, I am sure you will get there with all your hard work. Never ever let go of them. It's when you take your eye off the ball that things fall along the wayside and you spend a lifetime with regrets. You are blessed with a wonderful talent and it wasn't given to you for nothing, so hold that thought and I am certain only good things will come your way.
    Thank you for sharing this cute idea with us.
    Hugs Linda (UK) x
