I have been playing with decorative tape. I guess you could call it a Washi tape knock off. Real Washi tape is a high quality masking tape made of rice paper that come from Japan. The tape I used came from Michaels, and not made from rice paper. There are dozens of creative ways to use this tape...check out Pinterest if you are looking for ideas.
I tried out a few different ways to play with the tape from some idea pages, and then my creativity kicked in. I rummaged through some of my toys and came up with a manilla tags, a piece of an oldie but goodie Basic Gray patterned paper, image from Graphic Fairy ( gotta love the Fairy) and a part of a lace applique ... I put them all together and created...
The tape becomes transparent when it is applied to the tag .The ribbon for the tag is made out of the black decorative tape that has been folded in half, looped through the hole at the top of the tag, then tied in a knot.
The decorative tape is on the bottom of the tag, stacked above each other, The image was printed on clear sticker paper. The tape and the image are transparent and the cool Basic Gray patterned paper design shows through.
