Use your favorite patterns of decorative tape in this washi tape frame tutorial. You’ll find that making them is addictive!
It’s Sarah from Bombshell Bling, back to bring you another washi tape tutorial. Today’s post is a striped washi tape frame tutorial. I made this frame for my sister as part of a thirtieth birthday package of gifts.
I thought it was only appropriate since she has teased me in the past that these striped washi tape frames are my “signature frames.”
I guess she’s right . . . after she pointed it out I realized that I did share three holiday frames like this last year! I may have a problem . . . . . 😉
To make this frame you will need an unfinished wooden frame (found at any craft store or even in the craft aisle at Walmart!), white paint, a selection of washi tape, and Mod Podge.
Begin by painting your frame white. I use spray paint b/c I’m lazy, but any white paint will do. I like the white because it gives the edges a crisp, clean look and it provide a nice, clean background for the thinner tapes.
Now just get taping! I love that you can adjust washi easily, like masking tape. Just arrange and rearrange until you find an arrangement that you like.
See what I mean about the white background? Doesn’t it make the chevron and other patterns pop?
Carefully trim the edges of the tape off with scissors. Throw a layer of Mod Podge on top to seal the tape in place and you are done! Easy peasy!
Love how this frame turned out, and I love this pic of my mama and my sisters and I from my high school days. Happy memories.
