Washi Tape at MMM



 



Welcome to our latest challenge at Make My Monday where Dawn would like to see cards or projects using Washi  tape. I have bought several different washi tapes over the years but am always at a loss of how to use them. I originally used the tapes above at Christmas to decorate parcels, so decided to use some of what was left to decorate some tins I use for storage.

Many thanks for all your kind comments on my last few cards and for taking the time to pop in and leave one today.

The gold and black is a very luxurious and striking colour combo and looks great to decorate these storage tins. I have a bunch of washi tapes too which I 'needed' at the time but haven't managed to find a use for them yet :/

How lovely are these? So chic, beautiful, and inspiring. Washi is such a versatile material and this is a great reminder to us all that it also works wonders on materials beyond "just" paper and cardstock.
