So imagine my extreme happiness when I found a tutorial from Craftpasion showing how to make an embossed homemade washi tape. Unfortunately, I do not own an embossing gun and was not so keen about using tissue/toilet paper. Then I realized I have a lot of patterned tissue paper. The ones they use to wrap gifts and stuff.
So here's how I did it...
What I used:
Double sided tape
Pattered Tissue paper
How I did it:
1. Cut a strip of patterned tissue paper ( depending on how long you want it). make sure it is a bit wider than the double sided tape.
2. Attach the double sided tape to the wrong side of the tissue paper.
3. Cut the excess tissue paper, so you only have the width and length of the double sided tape.
4. Peel the back once you're ready to use them.
I used them to washify another candle.
The downside though is that you can't cut it by hand like the normal washi tapes and you can't "reuse/reposition" them. But hey, this is a good substitute if you can't buy one just yet.
There you have it. So go ahead and try it. It's cheap and easy
