I LOVE washi tape and so I came up with a cheap way of making your own. With this technique you can make your tape whatever color you want and give it whatever print you want by using stamps you have in your stash! You will need 1 inch masking tape, Maya Mist by Maya Road, a cotton ball, and a stamp of your choice, and ink (I chose Staz-On)! I used my Ranger Craft Mat for this project.
First layout of a strip of masking tape:
Next put a dab of Maya Mist on a cotton ball and "color" your tape:
When it is dry your tape is ready to adhere to your layout of project. For a little added "umpf" use a stamp from your stash on the tape! I used a wood-grain stamp for this example.
How cute would this be to frame a photo, make a pocket from two pieces of paper, or to trim!? The beauty is that you can color your washi tape the color that best matches your photo, layout, or project! I like the 1 inch tape as it allows me to wrap around things!
