Stick To It- Tapes of All kinds


I love  tape! Any kind will do, whether it is Washi Tape, decorative tape, handmade tape, or print and cut versions.  Even small bits can add a real oomph to a project.

Up first-real Washi Tape cards.  I am especially fond of applying the tape to the cardstock and then running the piece through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder. The embossing gives the tape just a bit more dimension.

Silhouette has several files for washi tapes.  They can be cut out of any solid  paper or cardstock or can be filled with designs or patterns and treated as Print and Cut files. I used white cardstock and printed these tapes to match my embellishments.  I like the slightly thicker look as a result of using cardstock instead of paper.

If you need ideas for the use of tape Pinterest is a great place to look.  So what are you waiting for?  Grab some tape and start embellishing!
