A couple of sundays ago I wanted to make something easy, without needing lots of supplies and without making a big mess. I thought it might be fun to make some postcards.
What you'll need:
- Paper the size of a postcard, I used kraftpaper
- washi tape, in different colours
- a black fineliner
- a ruler (this one's an old souvenir granny got me from Germany over 20 years ago)
Start by sticking washitape to your paper, don't worry if you tape the paper to your workspace. This might even work in your advantage when you start the drawing part of this DIY :-)
Make stripes above and underneath the tape, using your ruler
Make diagonal stripes, or any other pattern that floats your boat. I didn't use my ruler for this part.
Peel your card of the table and cut off the washi tape.
Make rounded edges using a roll of tape, pen, and scissors
And that's all! Have you been creating something lately? Please feel free to share a link in the comments below, I love seeing what you've been up to! More how-to's can be found over here.
You had me at "washi tape" :)ReplyDelete
This is a fun idea! I love it!!!
I always try to find cool washi tape projects, I promised myself to get some new ones soon!Delete
What a fun postcard! Looks like a relaxing project too...doodling is always fun!ReplyDelete
I also think doodling is a very relaxing thing to do :-) I need to doodle some more!Delete
O nice!! Easy DIY's are the best!ReplyDelete
Yes, and I love it when you don't need lots of suppliesDelete
Looks great! I like the ruler :)ReplyDelete
Haha! One might say the ruler rules ;-)Delete

Tape is one of my favourite supplies!Delete
Very nice and easy. I love the idea.ReplyDelete
yes!!! That is so easy and it looks so nice! I have had a DIY sitting on my work table for about a week. One of these days I'm going to get to it.ReplyDelete
I'd love to see the result! I really loved the dress you made for yourself.Delete
So brilliant and it looks beautiful:) Happy Wednesday, darling. xoReplyDelete
This is so cute! I've made a couple of cards using washi tape and it's really fun.ReplyDelete
Thanks Paige! One of the things I love about tape projects is that they are quite easy to make and usually don't make a big mess.Delete
I love this! I've never used that stuff before but I've seen it at the stores. Maybe I'll give it a try.ReplyDelete
Watch out, you might want to stick this stuff on everything!Delete
This is adorable. I love washi tape.ReplyDelete
Thanks Jessica! And so do I.Delete
Great diy marieken! and this would be a great diy to do with my kids too :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Mia, and I'd love to see what you guys create, if you decide to make these!Delete

Do you want to follow each other on Bloglovin?
That is too cool! I love the designs you drew between the pieces of tape.ReplyDelete
I love doodling, for some reason I find it very relaxing :-)Delete
Het resultaat is echt super gaaf! Bij de Hema zie ik altijd al die creatieve spulletjes en dan wil ik alles kopen, maar ik weet niet zo goed wat ik ermee moet doen.ReplyDelete
Kaarten maken bijvoorbeeld! Op Pinterest staan ook altijd veel crea-bea projectjes met washi tape. En de Hema heeft inderdaad veel leuke spulletjes. Ik woon er tegenover, erg gevaarlijk!Delete
This is pretty! I might actually do this for the next set of postcards I send out! I've definitely some leftover washi tape that I might want to use up. :)ReplyDelete
