Woven Washi Tape Tutorial!


Hello! Today I have a post for MarkerPop; a photo tutorial of the Woven Washi Tape Technique that I used on yesterday's Lawn Fawn/Marker Pop Blog Hop!
1. Choose two tapes that you want to work with. I chose two 1/2 inch tapes, and so used a 3x3 inch square piece of coated cardstock. I found that you need to have a cardstock that won't separate onto the tape as you repeatedly lift the pieces as you are weaving.
2. Continue to add pieces of tape carefully lifting and tucking as you go.
3. When you are done, trim and tuck the tails behind your panel. The variety of backgrounds you can achieve is as broad as your Washi Tape collection!
4. You can vary the pattern of your weave, see the Double Weave Variation above...I simply wove over two strips and then under two strips. 5. The Faux Weave piece was done with tape that already has a variety of patterns on it. I simply laid tape down in strips, carefully matching the designs so it looks like I did some fancy cutting, when in reality I simply laid down strips of tape! The possibilities are endless!
I hope you've been inspired you use your Washi Tape in a new way! I'm pretty sure I've inspired myself to purchase some more Washi Tape!! Love the stuff!
