I’ve been hearing about washi tape for a long time now. As you probably know, I’m a masking tape addict. Therefore, it was only a matter of time until I gave washi tape a try.
Washi tape is a Japanese paper tape that comes in a variety of colors and patterns.
In my local store one roll costs around $2–$4, so obviously I looked for a cheaper option online.
I got myself a lifetime supply of rolls on AliExpress.
One item is a 5pcs set of 8 mm tape, and the other is a 30pcs set of 15 mm tape.
When the packages arrived two weeks later, I decided to use the thin tape to create some simple wall art.
I fell in love with the look of origami birds, so I crafted two cute birds with washi tape. I published the entire process in my Instagram stories, so if you wish to see projects as they happen, don’t forget to follow!
Here we go:
Find an image you like online, and save it to your computer.
Print the image on multiple pages.
I used the paint software:
- Open the image you’d like to print in Paint.
- Select: Print -> Page Setup or File -> Page Setup
- Under Scaling, select “Fit to” and change the setting to something like “2 by 3 page(s)” and click OK.
- Print the image from Paint, and make sure to select “All Pages”
- Tape the pages together.
BUT (!) if you subscribe to updates, you will receive a free printable, already divided into pages.
