How to make a washi tape heart card

how to make a washi tape heart card

We attended my brother-in -law’s wedding over the weekend. I needed a card for them and knowing the couple to be completely down to earth and relaxed, i wanted the card to suit them. It is no secret that i am a fan of washi tape. Who isn’t? Its uses are limitless. Just search ‘washi tape’ on Pinterest, i dare you, and see the massive number of creative projects that people all over the world have completed.

My card is simple but effective and easy to make. You’ll need –

1. cardboard

2. kraft blackboard heart (or another heart as a template)

3. pencil

4. assorted washi tapes

5. scissors

Step 1 – trace around the heart template so you have an outline on your card.

Step 2 – stick lengths of washi tape to the heart template. Don’t stick them down too hard because you will need to be able to lift the pieces of washi tape off easily.  Keep sticking until the heart is completely covered.

Step 3  – carefully cut off the overlapping  bits of washi tape.

Your heart template should look like this.

Step 4 – Once your heart is covered, very carefully remove the pieces of washi tape and attach them to your card using the pencil outline as a guide.

And finally, here it is all wrapped up with a bit more washi tape and string. I used the kraft chalkboard heart as a tag, which echoes the theme of the card inside.
