Simple Washi

One of the new templates from Crafty Templates has a few Faux Washi Tape strips.  These are great for adding some "bang on trend" decoration to your projects.
If you've ever looked at all the fabulous reels of Washi tape that are available to buy you'll know how difficult it is to choose just a few.  So here's a great idea for using your favourite papers and just making your own version!
Once you've cut out the strips from your Crafty Template, you can just glue them into place, or if you're after a more "authentic" feel, try running the strips through a Xyron machine and hey presto! your very own crafty sticky tape.

For this card all I've done is adhered the cut out Faux Washi Tape strips onto the card base.  I've cut one of the wider "tapes" on plain white card to make into a banner for the sentiment and used off-cuts to make some bunting.
