How in the world did we ever manage without washi tape? Seriously? This magical tape has completely changed the way we craft!

I remember when I first heard about this addicting tape. It was around the time I was getting married when washi tape made its way into my heart. I remember doing a quick search on washi tape to see what colors it came in and how people were using it. Let's just say, I was instantly hooked! From that point on, I decided every single wedding DIY project I was working on needed to be covered in washi tape. If one of my projects looked like it needed something more, I just added washi tape!

I was looking at my washi tape stash the other day and was trying to think of a quick project that was a little bit out of the box. As I played with my washi stash, I ended up using my washi tape as a backer to my die design. All I did was punch out my die and then glue a strip of paper with washi tape on the back of it to the back of my design. My die design turned into a frame for my washi tape. How about that? It also added a subtle pattern to my card along with some dimension. Just think, you could be as basic as you want with your design, or you could create something more elaborate. It really just boils down to your esthetic. Have fun with your washi and make something awesome with it!

Create your card using your cardstock. Use your die cut or punch to the lower right hand side of your card.

Tape two pieces of washi tape (or more if your die or punch are larger) onto a piece of carstock.

Trim down your washi tape so it will fit behind your design.
