So You Think You Can Washi?! DIY Cake Topper using Washi Tape! It’s quick and easy but most importantly fun to do and looks pretty on a yummy cake! All you need is: Wooden Skewers, Washi Tape, String, Scissors.
Lay the skewers apart on the table then drape the string over the skewers (allowing enough string on either side of the skewers for knots).
Tightly double-knot the string to the skewers so it doesn’t fall down/off.
Lay a piece of Washi tape underneath the string (with the string passing over the ‘middle’)
Neatly fold over the tape (this is a little tricky) to get the sides nice and even.
Continue to apply tape at even spaces along string.
For more flags and colour add more tape (different width) between the existing tape.
Cut the tape at all the same length (this also gives the flags a straight end.
Cut out little triangles from each bit of tape to get your Cake Topper Flags!
So you think you can Washi?! I’ve decided to show you one quick ‘n easy and very simple use of wash tape: to make some pretty peg magnets! All you need is some: Washi Tape (assorted colours and patterns), Wooden Pegs, Peel n Stick Magnet Sheet, Scissors.
Simply cut the magnet sheet into thin strips to fit on the back of the whole peg. Peel of the backing and stick the magnet to the peg. Then apply the Washi Tape to the other side of peg, pressing down tape firmly around edges. Clip cards, photos, assorted things with peg and stick on the office desk/fridge/cabinet!
So You Think You Can Washi?! I think I’m hooked on pretty Washi Tapes! After recently discovering them I keep on looking for pretty patterns as well as cute ideas to use it with.
Need a specific type of pattern/colour of Washi Tape? Why don’t you make your own!
Lay your paper/fabric face down.
With some double sided sticky tape - tape along the longest edge of paper/fabric (to get long strips of tape).
Once you’ve got enough tape down, carefully cut along the edge of each tape (it’s good to leave a slight gap between each piece).
And there you have it! Your own Washi Tape! ( Because fabric is so much longer than a piece of paper I could get a decent ‘roll’ of Washi Tape, otherwise you can join bits together but thats a bit time consuming)
