I've been getting tempted by Washi tape that everyone is currently using, but I couldn't find one I liked. So, I have made faux Washi tapes using my much loved K & Company paper.
I laid some clear matt tape over thin leftover strips of patterned paper. The next stage is the most important, which is to burnish the tape to the paper. I used my bone folder to rub over the back of the paper to press the ink on to the sticky side of the tape.
Then moisten the back & gentle rub away the white backing. Once all the white paper has been removed, what is left is a semi-transparent patterned tape.
These are a few I have made today. I will adhere them to a sheet of double sided adhesive, ready for use.
