DIY - Colored Tape Strips ( Washi Tape )

Heya girls, how you've been? I have a cold :( after 3 years :))) lol, but it doesn't matter this right now. I prepared you something special, and please believe me, I LOVE IT!
A few days ago I was looking for colored tape on internet and I found something truly cool - Washi Tape  .
It's kind of a paper tape?!?!?! with so but so many designs and you can  lots of crafts or personalize your own things.
I buyed some from Ebay and I'm wainting for them. For my romanian girls: you can find some washi tape at the Carturaresti Store and online at Klipa .
Today I'm going to show you how to create you own tape, colored tape, or if you want you can call it washi tape ( but is not the same thing ) like this ones :)

You will need:

  • scissors 
  • double tape

  • prints ( I print them out - you can find plenty on google )
  • napkins or any king of tissue paper, magazines, newspapers, gift wraps and more

  • you will need your ... pet :))))) lol
Now let's get to the DIY...

First take your napkin and put it with the print face down ( like in the photo below )

Take the double-sided tape and apply it to the napkin ( like in the photo below )
 Cut the edges.
 And taaaaaadaaaaaaam :)

 This is how it looks. You can't tell that is a DIY :).

 And a way you can wrap them :)

 And again. Take you print, cut the white edges ( if you have )

 Apply the double-sided tape on the back of the print.

 And taaadaaaaa :)

 Another strip example :)

 A way to deposit them :)

Let tell you that strips made with napkins are more thin than the ones you do with the prints (  regular A4 paper ).

And here are 2 examples of how to use your own tape strips:

You can decorate a glass or an old candle jar like the photo below.

Or you can creat a birthday card for your loved ones.

This are only 2 examples, let your imagination fly and decorate what like and love!
Hope you enjoyed this DIY and find it useful. If you try this please let me know, leave me a link, or a photo here or on my facebook or hashtag your creation with #lbbtape . 

PS: Let me know if you like the idea! :)

XO, Elisa
