Better late than never, right?
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and visit us today.
We are happy you are here!
After seeing so many interesting projects using Washi Tape we thought we would give it a try too. Not sure what we wanted to do for our very first Washi Tape project, we decided to play it safe and decorate some painted cans we had. You know, kinda test the waters and see how it worked and how we liked it. Plus, we did a little up cycling too!
And the verdict..... we LOVED IT!!!!.
We found our Washi Tape at Target in the stationary supply area. Our Target only had two color choices, so we bought both. The tape is very nice to work with. Soft and forgiving.
Remember these painted cans? We used them in our Easter Flower Can post. We still had them kicking around after Easter and they can in handy for this little Washi Tape project.
All we did was figure out which tape to con on which can, and start wrapping.
You may be wondering what the can open is for. Well, initially we wanted to plant some flowers in the cans for Mother Day gift giving, but we got side tracked into other things.
So we punched the cans and decided that if we did want to use the cans for planters later we could and that part would be done for us.
Here is a look at the Washi Tape we worked with.
And now to show you how we used our Washi Tape Up Cycled Cans
The red and white can is used to hold dry erase markers in for our white board.
The green and blue can we placed in our bath room with a few pretty flowers in it.
And the blue and purple can we placed on our front porch and pulled out our paper flowers to put inside.
And so that was our first experience with Washi Tape, and there are sure to be in the future. What have your experiences been playing with Washi Tape? Are you a fan? Be inspired. get creative!
He who covers his sins will not prosper,
But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.
