I’m a huge fan of all the beautiful washi tape out there but a lot of the time, I find myself just hoarding it instead of actually using it. I wanted to figure out a way to make some sort of washi tape wall art without too much hassle or expense!
I also wanted to maintain the translucency of the tape. I know I could have just stuck the washi tape to white paper and then cut it out but I wanted the “look” of washi tape, which, for me, means it has to be translucent. I was more nervous cutting out this project than I was when I cut out my Montessori Sandpaper Letters! I didn’t want to waste all that beautiful washi tape if this project didn’t pan out…luckily it worked on the first try!
I used my Silhouette Cameo to easily cut out the words but you could definitely do this project with some patience and a sharp craft knife. The Clear Sticker Paper is pretty thick but allows you to place your work of art almost anywhere! I love the idea of using this tutorial to make decals for a kid’s room. A Washi Tape Millennium Falcon? Yes, please!
