Layout with washi tape embellishments

Hello Love My Tapes fans! This is Maya and today I will share a layout where I used three different washi tapes.

After my son's backpack reached it's end of life I cut out the piece with his name and decided to make a layout devoted to the backpack. I found 6 pictures with the backpack and arranged them in a simple grid.

I added a piece of green chevron and black chalkboard washi tapes to the corners of the layout. The title is cut with Silhouette Cameo from vinyl.

To finish the layout I added small hearts that were punched out of red chevron washi tape adhered to vellum.

That't it! Super simple and no embellishments needed!
Than you for stopping by today!

Halloween Stamp Camp

Hey everyone, Katie here! I wanted to share with you guys these projects I made recently at Stamp Camp. What's stamp camp? It's just a fun little "crop night" hosted by a friend of mine who is a Stampin' Up consultant.

All of the supplies were provided for the projects we made but I brought along  a bunch of my washi tapes to use as well. Because things are just cuter covered in washi. :) Don't you agree?

We each made a card, 2 gift bags, and a little candy jar. I used the provided supplies but I also added bits of washi tape here and there to further embellish my projects!

I love the finished look that the washi tape gives all of these projects! Are you making a lot of fun Halloween crafts?

Life is a Ride... enjoy it with Washi Tape!

Hello Love My Tapes friends! Marcia here today with an awesome layout to share with you using some Love My Tapes washi tape and the fabulous Basic Grey Second City collection from my October Clique Kit.

I love using washi tape to repeat patterns on my layout. When I saw the black circles on the houses in the pattern paper I thought this black and white polka dot washi tape would be perfect. Here are some close-ups...

A little washi in the corner says, Look at me...

I love to frame my photo with just a little washi. I even tucked some under that die cut.

Take a look at your pattern papers and try to find patterns you can repeat using some washi tape too.

Thanks for stopping by!

Fabric Tape Bow Paperclips

Hello! Tessa here with an easy tutorial for bow paper clips made with fabric tapes from Love My Tapes.

While you could easily use regular fabric for these, I love using fabric tape because it eliminates the need for sewing or gluing. To make your own, all you'll need is fabric tape and paper clips.

Step 1: Cut four equal pieces of fabric tape. I wanted my bow to be about 2 inches wide, so my pieces are that length.

Step 2: Remove the backing and place two pieces sticky sides together. Trim excess tape so that no adhesive is visible. Repeat with the other two pieces.

Step 3: Cut a piece of fabric tape at 0.75 inches and another at 1.25 inches.

Step 4: Remove the backing of the smaller piece. Pinch the middle of your bow with one hand, then use the other hand to wrap the small piece of tape around the bow.

Step 5: Remove the backing of the larger piece and thread it through a paper clip. Leave the front section of tape longer than the back.

Step 6: Starting with the back section of tape, secure the bow to the paper clip. Wrap the front section of tape back over the bow and press firmly to make sure the tape is secure.

You can use your paper clips as bookmarks, as embellishments on layouts and cards, to add tags to gifts, or just as cute office supplies. With Love My Tapes' wide selection of fabric tapes, you are sure to find a color palette you'll love. Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Iris folding with fabric tape

Hello, Love My Tapes fans! This is Maya and today I am going to share a card I made using one of my favorite techniques - iris folding! Usually iris folding is done using folded pieces of paper but I used Love My Tapes fabric tapes and I am in love with the final look!

I used a coordinated trio of fabric tapes that come together in one package and also added blue water drops tape and a pretty floral one. I found the pattern for the umbrella girl on Pinterest. Just look for iris folding patterns, you will find the one that I used and many many others.

The adhesive on the back of the tapes really helps to hold everything together. I added a frame to the card base using another fabric tape that has a beautiful linen texture.

I colored the girl image with Fiber-Castell big brush markers and added a stamped sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!

Canning Lid Pumpkin with Washi Tape!

Hello everyone. Marcia here today. I got a new shipment of Love My Tapes washi, fabric, and lace tapes to create with and I was so happy, happy, happy to see there was some orange washi tape! I saw this really cute pumpkin on Pinterest made with canning lids and wanted to make one too. This was my inspiration found on YellowBlissRoad ...

I LOVE this! And since I did not can very many tomatoes this year, I thought ... Hey, I have canning lids! You would not believe how easy these are to make. You could do it in 10 minutes. There is a tutorial on YellowBlissRoad, but basically you just tie the lids together with string.

I decided some orange washi tape on those lids would be a fabulous addition. I covered each lid with this gorgeous orange chevron washi before stringing the lids together. Here is my washi tape canning lid pumpkin...

Gorgeous Right!!

I used 24 canning lids for my pumpkin and not even one roll of washi tape in case any of you would like to make one too ;)

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!
