Challenge 109: Washi It Up

Hello Paper Girls!!!

This is Brittany here to host our new challenge! Can you believe that it is August?! I'm not sure where the time has gone, but if you're anything like me you're trying to steal away a few minutes here and there to get some crafts in while you're trying to take advantage of these last few weeks of summer! Most of my projects have been simple or things that don't take a lot of time - and my favorite tool - WASHI! Seriously, washi tape is probably one of my favorite "go-to's" for quick, fun, and easy projects. And, really, how many of you have at least a dozen (or maybe 5 dozen) rolls sitting around just begging to be used???

So, these next couple weeks, I'm challenging you to use up that washi tape! Stretch your thinking and use it in ways you might not have tried before. Make banners, flags, flowers - or use it as a background for your projects. I can't wait to see what projects you come up with - I'm always looking for inspiration!

Here is the frame I created all with washi tape. The entire frame took me less than an hour from start to finish - and it was SUPER easy to make. With an all washi background, washi flowers and feathers, it is just enough color to make this a bold and fun gift.  Visit my blog for more details.

Here is what the other ladies on the design team created:

Made an 8x8 scrapbook page with an all washi background.

Used washi in background and for the clouds on her adorable card.

Accented her scrapbook page with washi tape.

Amber used several washi tapes on the front of her card. 

Cathryn use washi to highlight her photo!

And now....
The winner of Challenge #108 is Barbara Greenberg!
