Product shuffle : Washi tape take 2

Good morning!

It's me, Jocelyne, trying to show you ways to use your scrapbooking stash in unconventional ways.  Today's product is washi tape. That's right!  Another product shuffle featuring washi tape!  If you missed the first one, check it out here.

The washi tape I used for this project is the green stared tape that comes from this very cute My Mind's Eye My Girl decorative tape set.

Have you ever seen an idea for a scrapbook product in a magazine and just simply had to try it right away!  The inspiration for this week's product shuffle came to me in the new CTMH idea book.  All you need is washi tape and twine.  I've got them both! So away I go! Will you came with me?

Do you see it?  I made leaves using washi tape and twine!  Simply sandwich the twine between strips of washi tape placed back to back.  Then cut it to make the shape of a leaf!  Oh so easy!  If you want a more feathery look, simply cut more notches on the side of the leaves and there you have it! 

I also placed a piece of washi tape on paper, took out my hole punch and made matching confetti. 

Since I like to make things in three's.  I placed strips of washi below and on top of my picture to frame it better.

Here is my completed layout inspired by LCOM sketch 82 that was revealed last Saturday.  Along with the washi tape, I used Echo Park Capture Life and Bo Bunny Pincushion paper, some Prima, Kaiserkraft and Maya road flowers, Tattered Angel glimmer glaze, Webster's Pages ribbon, American Crafts alpha stickers, and a Prima butterfly. 

I hope you like it and you give this technique a try.  Don't forget to tune in on Saturday for yet another sketch reveal!  See you soon!

Have an amazing day!
