Tuesday Tips or Techniques-Washi Tape Medallion!

As promised! A few days ago I posted this card which has a beautiful "Washi Tape Medallion" that I created for my sentiment layer. I told you I would show you how to create the medallion:

Grab a few supplies and come join me!

You will need:
  • Washi Tape of your choice
  • Cardstock
  • 1 3/4" Circle Punch
  • Paper Snips
Step 1:

Cut out one circle using cardstock and the 1 3/4" Circle Punch.

Step 2:

Starting at the edge of your circle, glue your Washi Tape about 1/4" on the edge.

Step 3:

Pleat your ribbon and push down to glue in place, pleat again and push in place. The pictures below show you how I went around the whole circle pleating and pushing:

Step 4:

Once you get to the end, cut off your Washi about 1/4" longer and tuck in under the first pleat to hide your end! Glue in place on your card front using Stampin Dimensionals:

Add your sentiment which I also glued in place using Stampin' Dimensionals. Don't forget that we now carry various sets of patterns at Stampin' Up! and you can do so much with the Washi tape. Here are all 4 that we are now carrying:

  1. Such a great way to use the washi tape Debbie!

  2. Your creativity just never stops and I love that about you....this is a fabulous idea and thank you for including the pictures.....!

  3. so what happens to the washi tape thats left on the other side of the flower.. wont it get smashed and crushed to what ever you adhere it to ? hummm could be lQQking like a mess/..... any ideas ?

    1. Not really sure what you mean Terry. You add a little bit of adhesive to the back of the flower in the center, press it in place and then press the petals in place where the washi is sticky. The folds are folded to each other, thus no longer sticky so the petals stay intact. If you are not gluing it to a card front then I would suggest creating two flowers are butting them back-to-back to each other.
