DIY Washi Tape Card Ideas

I made a bunch of cards last year and never got around to posting them.  Greeting cards are so fun and easy to make, I usually make stacks of them for every occasion.  It seems like I'm always going to a birthday party, baby shower, graduation, or wedding.   This set of cards I made used washi tape. Washi tape is great because it's inexpensive, cute and not messy.  For those of you that aren't familiar with washi tape, it's a paper tape, similar to painters blue tape but thinner with super cute designs. You can purchase washi tape here or at any craft store.   I did emboss the wording, (embossing can be messy), but you can write it or stamp it instead.

My collection of washi tape.  The red polka dot one is my favorite.
This one is a birthday card so I am making candles with the tape
For the flames I cut double sided tape into the shape of flames.
Stick the tape on and add glitter.  You could also just use glue. 
Stamp or write the words and you are done.
The second set of cards I made use bakers twine.  Bakers twine is another inexpensive cute craft tool.  Using this in any craft project automatically makes it cute!
Stick the tape around the twine.
Trim the tape into bunting shape.
Sew the twine onto the card.  I tied a knot in the other end.  You could also just use glue.
Again stamp with your words ant easy peasy diy birthday cards.  The bunting could also be used for other occasions like graduation, baby showers, bridal showers, or any celebratory event.  Just mix up the colors of the bunting for the occasion, for example a Halloween card can have black and orange washi tape.
