Washi-tape Wednesday – tape on striped DSP

It’s Wednesday, so it must be washi and we have another new washi-tape project for you – this time using washi to alter your DSP.

This works best with a design of DSP that has clear negative areas. We used It’s My Party DSP and although the stripes aren’t completely uniform they are straight enough to work for this technique.

Simply lay the washi tape along the length of the stripes (we chose the white stripes but opted for alternate ones so that the design didn’t become too busy).

Die cut the treat bag ensuring that the stripes will run in the right direction on both pieces.

The treat bag was die cut from It’s My Party DSP (that had been taped with It’s My Party Washi Tape), using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. Balloons were punched from Melon Mambo card and It’s My Party DSP  with the Balloon Bouquet punch and then adhered together overlapping slightly. Bows and “enjoy” were die cut from Melon Mambo and Basic Black card using more dies from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and were adhered over the top of the balloons. After adhering Twine from the Baker’s Twine Combo Pack behind the balloons, they were popped up on the Treat Bag front with dimensionals and the “strings” adhered in place with a little adhesive from the fine-tip glue pen.

For those who don’t have/like washi another design alternative is to stamp sentiments into the negative space between the stripes.
