Washi It Up challenge: Make washi tutorial

  Ever since 1987 when I was dating my husband, we have celebrated our half birthdays (when we remember!)  I created this card for our twin girls to give to Doug for his half-birthday earlier this month.

  My inspiration came from the "Washi It Up" challenge at Little Tangles:  Use Washi or Make Your Own Washi.


Make your own washi tutorial:
  1. Apply strips of double-sided tape to a sheet of way paper.
  2. Add napkins or tissue paper to the tape strips.
  3. Trim off the extra napkin or tissue paper (but keep the wax paper on the back side.)
  4. When ready to use, cut a piece of your strip, peel off of the wax paper, and have fun!
 "Sparkle and Shine" stamps:

  The three washi tapes I used came from my blog friend, Leslie Hanna, who purchased these for me at Target.

Happy Thursday! (and Happy 46.5 Birthday to my hottie husband)
