“Stuck On You” | Washi Tape Valentines

I just mailed off my Valentines for the Valentines Exchange last week!  And I am beyond thrilled with how they turned out!  It should come as no surprise to those of you who follow me on a regular basis, that I decided to go with washi tape.  {hee hee}  Today I’m going to share a super easy tutorial on how to make your own Washi Tape Valentines!

Wanna learn how to make your own Washi Tape Valentines?

Here’s what you need:

Contact paper

Stencil

Marker

Contact paper

Washi tape

Blank cards

Computer and printer

  1. Trace or stencil your heart design onto the contact paper using your marker.  Since we had close to 50 people in the exchange, I made fifty hearts.
  2. Pick out coordinating washi tape.
  3. Apply washi tape over your design using whatever pattern you desire.  I chose to do a diagonal but you could do vertical or horizontal too.
  4. Cut out each heart.  I was very careful not to cut ON the line but just inside the line so the marker didn’t show through.
  5. Once all the hearts are cut out, carefully peel off the backing of the contact paper.  You have created your own washi tape sticker!
  6. Place on your card!

I bought a pack of blank bi-fold cards at Michael’s and printed up the inside of the card!  {I even included my blog signature!}

I just love how they turned out!  Of course, you could do this easily with a die-cutting machine but I wanted to create something that EVERYONE could easily make!

Have you finished your Valentines yet?
