Wishi Washi

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.


  1. What a good idea! I have been using Washi tapes in my Smash* book that I am currently doing, but this is a great way to get some different ones! xx

  2. I'm liking this washi tape, Daisy! I'll definitely have a go at making some.
