My Max Monster turns three today and we’re having a little family get-together to celebrate! He’s absolutely insane about The Wizard of Oz right now so there will be quite a few rainbows happening around our house tonight. I made this “No Place Like Home” Art for the party with two of my favorite scrapbooking supplies…washi tape and my Silhouette Cameo! Appropriate since it’s National Scrapbook Day, right?!
I’m participating in a Lifestyle Studios Design Team Blog Hop today. So when you’re done enjoying my tutorial, don’t forget to visit all the other blogs to check out all the scrapbooking goodness! Lifestyle Studios is also hosting a Crafter’s Tote sweepstakes over on their FB page so make sure to visit over there as well!
There’s No Place Like Home Art
1. Lay out your washi tape in the desired pattern. This part can be somewhat time consuming but it’s absolutely mindless work. Kinda nice to zone out every once and a while.
2. Trim off excess washi and using the free “There’s No Place Like Home” Art File, cut out the words with either your cutting machine or craft knife. I used the installed “Clear Sticker Paper” settings to cut through just the washi tape and not the sticker paper. You’re going to have to play with the settings a bit if you want to cut through the sticker paper like I did in my Happy Place Washi Stickers tutorial.
3. Begin weeding out the extra pieces of washi from around the letters. This is going to take a while so I highly suggest doing it while watching a movie or listening to a book. Just go slow and make sure you don’t accidentally pull up any pieces you don’t need to!
4. And you’re done! You now have a super cute No Place Like Home Art to frame as is or remove the white backing and you can even stick it to a window or wall. A great way to remember that, indeed, there’s no place like home!
