It seems that recently every time I look at a craft blog I see washi tape (adhesive fabric tape) being used in all sorts of clever ways. Washi tape is everywhere, but, apparently, not for sale anywhere near me.
As I always prefer to attempt to try to make something before I buy it, I decided to make my own washi tape.
I selected a few pieces of fabric with small prints; added some double-sided adhesive tape to the wrong side, and trimmed it using my ruler and rotary cutter.
Within minutes I had my own washi tape and put it to good use by wrapping a gift.
Then I used it to add some notepaper to the front.
How much nicer than plain old Sellotape.
