Video Inspiration for this post! Last night Beetle Juice played on ABC Family and I felt like having a party in the house. Nothing screams PAR-TAY Honey Boo Boo like PAR-TAY banners. Right now they have the 13 nights of HALLOWEEN so make sure and check out all of the classic movies playing. I suggest playing the video while you read the rest of the post, it’s sure to get you DANCING!
So, Washi Tape is pretty cool because you can use it for so many things. It’s really affordable until you become a washi tape addict then things can maybe get expensive. Sometimes at Michaels Arts and Crafts you can buy a pack of 3 or four for around 2.50. It might sound expensive but this stuff really last’s a long time. Once you start to get a collection then you can really get funky with your crafts.

What I really love more than washi tape is baker’s twine. There is something about this two toned string that makes me levitate and dance. I think when you add the black and white baker’s twine to things it adds a pop of color and it becomes a little magical to the eye.
The first thing you will do is lay out your baker’s twine on a flat surface.
Cut a piece of washi tape. I always like to cut a little more than I need. In the end we will be cutting these strips, plus it’s good to have some longer than other.
Lay your piece of washi tape on your flat surface and place your baker’s twine right on top of it. You want to make sure and place your baker’s twine is right in the middle.
Here is another angle for ya.
Fold it over so each side sticks to each other. Once you are happy with that you can cut it strait across or like I did below. It kinda adds a little “carnival” in your life!
I am really pleased with they way they turned out. Make sure you squeeze the washi tape around the baker’s twine so it is secure.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Remember they make washi tape in every design you could think of. Here is a great site to order from. It’s Wishy Washi Tape . You will really enjoy this shop.
