Survey Time and a Washi Flower

I'm hoping to find out a little more about YOU--the fantastic people who take time to come see what I'm up to.  

There are 10 multiple choice questions for you here, and I would LOVE for you to fill it out for me.   Then come right back.  It should only take 2 minutes.

Ok, welcome back, and thanks for taking the survey!   As an extra thank you, I'm going to show you how to make this cute washi tape flower that I just saw on display at my craft store over the weekend.

You'll need scissors, 3 patterns of washi tape, cardstock and a rhinestone or button for the center.

Cut or punch a 2 1/2 inch diameter circle of cardstock.

Tear 8 pieces of tape 3 inches long each
Tear 8 pieces of tape 2 inches long each 
Tear 4 pieces of tape 1 1/2 inches long each

Fold each piece of tape over on itself, leaving a bit of sticky side exposed.  Cut the 4 shortest pieces in half and trim to a point.

Attach the longest pieces around the circle.  Then add the next longer pieces and finally the shortest, pointed pieces.  Add the gem or button to the center.

Try trimming the tape in different shapes too for different looks. 

Then add them to cards, scrapbook pages or gifts wrap. What do you think?  If you make one of these, send me a picture or a link to your blog post and I'll add them to my post here.  We'll start a collection!

  1. I love washi tape. What a cute and fun idea. I never thought to create stuff with washi tape. I just put it on letters and gifts and things. Thanks for sharing your creation. Happy blogging.

  2. What a cute idea! Now I have something I can make with all of the washi I have accumulated. :)

  3. This turned out so cute! I have not ventured into Washi tape yet. I think I need to hop on the bandwagon, especially if there are such cute projects out there as yours. Have a great weekend!

  4. oh, I how I love this! Perfect timing, too since I just stocked up on my first purchase of fun washi goodness from Downtown Tape. I am a sucker for crafting flowers. thanks so much for posting this cuteness!

    I'm so happy to now be following your fab blog!
