Tuesday Tip with Kiwi Lane and Downtown Tape

Today you get to be witness to my first forays into the joys of creating with washi tape on the Kiwi Lane Designs blog. I learned a lot and by the end of it all, I think washi has found a permanent place in my crafting arsenal. The beautiful colors and patterns of Downtown Tape washi won me over. The templates I used this month were Happy Trails, Paradise, Wacky and Tiny Wacky. They worked perfectly with my summer and vacation photos. So be sure to check on the Kiwi Lane Designs blog for some scrapbooking inspiration as well as the Downtown Tapes facebook page.

Washi Tape Gift Card Holder Instructions

Super simple to make. All you need is a scoring tool, a paper trimmer, a KLD template, adhesive, and some washi. (these instructions are for a standard size gift card)

Cut a piece of card stock or heavy weight pattern paper to 4"W x 12"L

Score your paper at 1" from the bottom edge. Fold it up and seal ends with washi tape to make a pocket.

Place the paper back on the score board and score at the 4.5" mark and fold over to make a card.

Next put the folded card back on the score board and score at the 4.5" mark.

Place a Happy Trails template (or any template of your choosing) along the open 4" edge of the card and trace. This will create a decorative edge along the bottom of the card.

Now fold the decorative edge back, toward the front of the card and glue in place.

Decorate as desired.
