This is another successful washi tape card!! I added a white embossed layer to a pink card front. Added three little strips of washi tape that coordinate and added the black and white chipboard heart to which I had tied a short piece of pink ribbon. I added the laser printed and punched (SU) greeting to which I added a bit of pink sponging and some dots with a fine tip Sharpie.
Here is the first card I made with my washi tape. It would seem I am sort of getting the hang of it!!
You simply peel off the backing cellophane and apply to the window!!
Had we trimmed them close to our images we would have had a more custom look.
This was a fun creative project that has inexpensive besides!! We got about 20 clings from one roll end.
It took a little more effort to flatten these ones as they had already been crimped onto bottles. Read - lots of prying with pliers and hammering iwth mallets!!
We printed the sayings off of the internet, glued them into our bottle caps and added beads and bling. For some of them we also added some clear dimensional paint (clear sun catcher paint). Once they were dry we added a string and some danglies using jump rings. We created our own jump rings using paperclips. You just straighten the paper clip, wrap tightly around a skewer, remove and cut down one side with wire snips - quick and inexpensive jump rings!! She took a few home to continue to craft with.
My grand daughter was visiting recently and she wanted to make paperclip jewelry!! I was not sure what that meant so after a bit of an explanation we decided we would give it a go so we got started. We straightened some paper clip, added a metal charm and made a loop to capture it. We threaded on some beads and made another loop. I had to use two paperclips per side but she was able to use only one. We bent the beaded wire to conform to our wrists and added clasps!! They turned out very well!!
