Tips, Tricks and Techniques with Cara

Cara here today to bring you a new washi tape technique...if you've been following SEM long, you may already know I have a serious "thing" for washi.  I'm always looking for new ideas on how to use my ever-growing supply. And I found this fabulous new idea on to get printed words on your washi tape.

The original post and photos are from Kimbo at A Girl and a Gluegun blog. 

First you print out different words and sayings in different fonts on a piece of paper on your computer.

Then you lay your washi tape (you want light colors and not too much pattern) over the printed words.

Then you pull up the tape...and viola, it's printed because the ink sticks to it. 

Now, use the tape for all sorts of fun crafting (cards, scrapbooking, etc).

Hope you enjoy this fun new technique!
