The one with the washi tape card DIY


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
  • scissors
  • 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.

    1. 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!
