Finally I understand the lure of Washi tape. I admit I didn't see what the fuss was about when it started filtering through to the craft community. However, I'm now hooked. I've ordered a collection of rainbow coloured tapes but they haven't arrived yet. I do have my stash of black and white tapes though.
I saw a few examples of Washi tape which mitred the corners and I fancied trying it out. Not as easy as it looks. I cut a piece of plastic with a mitred edge and stuck my washi tape pieces onto it, so that I could accurately trim of the corners. Being plastic, it was easy to peel the washi tape away, once I had cut to shape.
Sticking the tape down onto the card was the trickiest part as it has a tendency to curl back on itself, making accurate piecing difficult. With patience and a few hits and misses, I finally stuck it all down.
