DIY Washi Tape Valentine's Day Cards

Monday, February 3, 2014


February is here, folks, so if you aren't already in full blown Valentine's Day mode then it is now officially time to do so! This weekend I whipped up some super simple Valentine's Day cards using one of my favorite crafting supplies... Washi Tape! It seriously has never been so easy to create custom Valentines. Here is what you'll need to make it happen:

- Blank cards
- Plain white cardstock or paper
- Washi Tape
- Something to cut out letters or shapes. You can use anything from a die cut machine, regular old scissors, an exacto knife, or scrapbook punches. Any of those will do fabulously!

So how does this work? Easy peasy - simply tape strips of washi onto the plain white cardstock or paper as pictured below.


Next, use your cutting tool of choice to cut shapes or letters within the strips of tape. Use double sided tape to secure your washi tape cut outs to the blank cards. And you're done!


What kind of Valentine's Day crafts do you plan to make this month? I would love to hear what is on your crafting to do list!

  1. These are so cute!! I have never made anything with washi tape. Maybe because I can't find it around here for some reason. I love the 2 layer effect. Pinning in my Valentine board.
