I made a new discovery today: washi tape – aka Japanese masking tape – makes great bows! Just fold it in half so that the sticky sides are together, then tie away. Yay!
You already know about this? Why didn’t you tell me? :)
A few more things — I love how washi tape is translucent — check out how the stem shows through it on the tag with the single flower.
AND! I love these sweet stamps from Mostly Hearts. They are so fun to color with markers, mist with a shimmer spray, and stamp. Finishing it all off is as simple as adding a pearl or gemstone to the flower center. And I must mention that Krystn, the owner of Mostly Hearts, is super special. I think she is sweeter than her stamps!
(Supplies: Pearls and gemstones by Hero Arts. Fabriano notecards. Tags are from my stash. Japanese masking tape from tinted mint — I got mine when they were at the Austin Renegade Craft Fair. But now I must get more. All stamps by Mostly Hearts — love that typewriter font. Shimmer mist and markers from Tsukineko.)
Hope your day is full of fun discoveries,
Leave a comment, I love hearing from you!
