Stylish washi tape bunting makes a fun, colorful card embellishment!
This technique is one of my favorite ways to combine different washi tape colors and patterns! The design is bright and cheerful, uses lots of color and style—yet never feels overwhelming or crowded. And it’s easy to do.

You Will Need

Washi tapes: Red with dots, multicolored circles, black patterned
Black gingham ribbon
Black satin ribbon
Colorful buttons
Greetings & Labels stamps: Hot Off The Press
Ebony Super Fine embossing powder: WOW Embossing Powder
VersaMark inkpad
Cardstock: Teal, black, white
Blank white card
Chopstick or pencil
Clear tape
Foam tape
  • Step 1

    Cut several 4" long strips of white cardstock slightly wider than the roll of washi tape. Place a strip of washi tape on each cardstock strip. Cut one end of each strip at an angle or inverted “v”; cut the other end evenly. Gently wrap the even end around a chopstick or pencil to create a curve or hook.
    Tip: You can vary the lengths of your strips, depending on the design of your card—4" is only a guideline!

  • Step 2

    Stamp and emboss “happy birthday” on teal cardstock, then mat on black cardstock.

  • Step 3

    Place a black ribbon across the cardstock piece and figure the positioning of your washi tape strips. (Tip: Take a quick photo to remember the positioning!) Use clear tape to secure one end of the ribbon to the back of the cardstock.

  • Step 4

    Use foam tape to secure the washi tape strips. Continue to add as many strips as you want, then secure the other end of the ribbon to the other side of the cardstock.

  • Step 5

    Add knotted pieces of ribbon and buttons to the piece. Glue to the card front.
