Tutorial: DIY Washi Tape

We have a fun tutorial from Wendy Price that includes stamping on some unconventional supplies. Read on to see how she made her fabulous card...

"As soon as I saw Stamp-It Australia's Dragonfly Delight I knew I had to try making washi tape with it. That long image with the dragonflies and script...perfect! Gather up a roll of medical paper tape (found at dollar store or drug store), inks and stamps. 

Supplies Used:
Popcorn- Thanks a Bunch
Imagine Craft Radiant Neon
medical paper tape
baby wipes


1. Roll out a piece of medical tape and ink. I rubbed the ink in with a baby wipe to give it a soft blended look. Allow to dry.

2. Ink up stamp with permanent ink and stamp. 

Here is a peek at a piece of tape I inked with Electric Blue and Electric Green Radiant Ink. The baby wipe blended the colors into a pretty aqua color. 

3. Continue inking and stamping lengths of tape until you have a handful of pieces. 

You can use the washi tape just as you would any other washi tape. The medical paper tape is  easy to use and can be moved without destroying your work. I adhered four colors of tape on cardstock, trimmed to size and used it as a panel on a card.
