Tuesday Tape Tip!

Hello everyone, hope you had a great weekend! This week's Tuesday Tape Tip is how to make some fun and easy flowers with our Japanese Masking Tapes. For this project we'll be using this style

Japanese Masking Tape

- 2 packs deco in a zip bag
- 15mm (wide) x 15 m (long)

Made of traditional Japanese washi paper
Excellent for decorating packages, gift wrapping, scrapbooking, card making

Safe for photo

To make these flowers you'll need to cut 3 pieces of white card stock 2 inches by 3 inches. Cover the card stock with stripes of the masking tape and use a corner rounder to round the edges or cut the round edges by hand with scissors. Use a hold punch to punch a hole in the center to layer each strip first in an X then add the last layer across the X. I used Kaisercraft flowers to layer and add dimension. Finally I used the itop tool from Imaginisce to create my own custom brad with the matching red tape. I used two strips to cover the brad and tucked it under the sides and used the tool to create the brad for the center. You can use any decorative brad for your flower.
You can also make your flowers smaller by using smaller strips of paper and rounding the edges in a more pointed style.
We'd love to see what you create with the Japanese tapes so be sure and link up your creations to this post.
Thanks for stopping by today.


  1. Super cute idea & I love this tape design!

  2. These flowers are really cute. Where can I get some of this tape???

  3. Nice project.....MT tapes are super-cute but they are actually not made of Japanese washi. They are made to simulate washi but unlike washi, they are made from plastics. True Japanese washi are made from natural fibers like kozo, mitsumata and gampi
