DIY Washi Tape Card & Printable!

smile

I was so excited about this card! It really validated the years (and YEARS!) or hoarding washi tape! It was so easy and looks fabulous – that’s my favorite combo!

Check out my YouTube video about how to make darling backgrounds with washi tape.

Here is the printable too, if you’d like to make this same card (I printed this lovely retro lady 3 inches tall).

You ROCK!

Everyone I work with at Red Lion ROCKS, so I wanted to make the sales & catering team special Valentine cards this year.
I found this cute idea in a magazine, and started working on these bad-boys assembly line style.
It was nice to put my Cricut to good use, too!
I made this simple pocket by hot-gluing three sides of the polka dot paper.
The most difficult part of my venture was the city-wide search for Pop Rocks. I had no idea how difficult they would be to find. I hit up almost every Sun Mart, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, 7-11 and Conoco in Tri-Cities, Washington!
Thanks for stopping by!  You ROCK, too!  🙂
