Washi Tape Cards

 

A few weeks ago I was just wandering the aisles at Target. Anyone with me in this? I think I could roam that store once a week for hours upon end. While in the office supply section I stumbled upon WASHI TAPE. Well, they didn’t call it that, but that is what my fancy blogging friends say it si, so I’m rolling with it.

I brought it home & added it to my craft stash (which really needs to be organized)! I wasn’t sure what I wanted to use it for until I found this card on Pinterest.

The link led me to this facebook page.

I knew I had found a winner! You see…I have a love/hate relationship with card buying.

The love is displayed in the 15 minutes process it takes me to find the perfect card. Whether I am sending laughter, wishes, or thoughts someone’s way, I want it to be the perfect card for their moment. I love the feeling when I find it.

But then there is the hate part. I hate the price tag that some of these cards come with these days. There I’ll be grinning from ear to ear & thanking the Hallmark geniuses when all of a sudden I flip the card over and read $4.29. Really??? Almost $5 for a piece of cardstock.

Now, I know this isn’t a novel idea, but with this pinspiration & a little washi tape, I’ve decided to make my own cards.

Supplies: Cardstock, Stamps, Ink, Washi Tape

It’s pretty self explanatory…

C.R.E.A.T.E.

Here is my version of my Pinspiration. I used a little of my DIY Baker’s Twine for the bow!

Complete and utter randomness…
{ and yes there are supposed to be to LLs :o) }

At this moment, I wished I bought more colors…I always love a reason to go back to Target.

I added some fun patterned paper to the mix for these last two!

 

I think it’s time I start living my new year’s resolution & starting sending out a few cards.  Visit thecsiproject.com
Happy Monday!
