Tutorial Tuesday with Elizabeth!

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Hi everyone! This is Elizabeth from 217 Creations.  this week is my turn to share a tutorial with our fabulous readers here at Frosted Designs! 
Today I am going to show you how to make a Washi Tape Banner for cards, layouts, and altered items.
First Cut your self a length of twine or string.  You could also use really thin ribbon. Choose your Washi Tape colors.
Make a pattern of Washi Tape strips, folding the torn strips in half and wrapping around the twine.
Take a sharp pair of scissors and trim each strip into a pennant shape. I start at the outside corner and work inward on each side. 
Create a card base. Mine is made with Teresa Collins paper "Memories".
Next apply a small pop dot on the back of each pennant.  I like pop dots because they are somewhat forgiving for placement.
Now place your a banner across your card.
I love this color combination! The pop dots really allow the banner to stand out.
Thank you as always for taking the time to leave a comment and for subscribing to us here at Frosted Designs and on my personal blog at 217 Creations
