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).

It’s a 50’s Thing – FREE Pin-Up Collage Image Included

I love the kitsch of 1950’s retro. Just absolutely love it. Paper crafting is a way for me to enjoy ephemera in a whole new way – by taking the illustrations I love and making one-of-a-kind collage art from them.

Below are some of my recent creations. I have also included a free “Pressed for Time” pin-up image, which is a one-of-a-kind collage I made myself. Enjoy!
