Using Paper Tape or Washi Tape in Making Cards
In case you have not used this tape, it is very repositionable and comes in great decorative designs. I first used it on my Smash book....Love the black and white polka dot tape that goes with the Smash Book products!
I recently purchased some tape that matches Martha Stewart paper, so here are some uses I found for it on cards.
Above, I wanted Jason's 30th birthday card to pop up and shout "30!", so I made a pop up element and made 30 candles using the tape. Then I added a flame on each with glitter glue. I could reposition the candles if I wanted until I had them the way I wanted them and they were bright and festive!
One thing I love about this particular tape is that it comes in a little box that has a cutter along the side. The tape tears easily also.
I thought of trying iris folding with paper tape, but since you can see through it a little, not sure that would work unless you used the darker version. I will have to look through my stash and see if I have a combination that would work. I am sure some type of a paper quilting would work....hmmmm.
You notice that I am using my Model Magic creations both on Clayton and Jason's cards....
I will be going to help with Clayton's party next week, but I am sure I will have LOTS of photos and party ideas to share with you afterwards!
