I simply love using the Hambly Washi Tapes on most of my projects. I love the finished look the washi tapes produced whether used on its own or with other materials or products.
I'm going to show you how I made a mini banner on my layout using the Washi Tapes.
To make this simple and easy mini banner, you first need to gather a few basic supplies such as Hambly Washi Tapes of your choice, twine, light colored cardstock, scissor and glue.
Step 1 - I picked out 3 of my favourite Washi Tapes with different mix of designs and colors to create a nice contrast. Next, tape them across a white cardstock or any light colored cardstock, layering them on top of each other. I chose to use a light base cardstock so that the colors and designs of the tapes will stand out.
Step 2 - Fold the cardstock with the tapes adhered on it just above the first tape as shown in the picture
Step 3 - Cut out a few triangular shapes from the cardstock taped with Washi Tapes.
Step 4 - As I wanted a variety of banner shapes, I repeated Step 1 with my other 3 favorite Hambly Washi Tapes.
Step 5 - Cut out a few rectangular shapes and snip off one end (not the folded part) like you cut the tail of a ribbon.
Step 6 - Now you have 2 different shapes of mini banner to play with. String them together alternately with a twine on the folded end of the banner and glue to secure them together.
And the mini banner is ready to grace any of your projects like what I did here on my layout!
For a more fun look, you can also add alphabets, buttons and other types of embellishment on the banner itself.
I hope you've enjoyed this simple tutorial and have a great week ahead!
