Trendy Crafter: Tape (and a little blog hopping friday)

Trendy Treehouse is having a little fun and putting up crafty challenges each week. This first one is tape. Use any sort of tape you have to create something crafty. I chose Washi Tape. Fun stuff!

Here’s my creation: A paper/washi tape tiara…

I used the tape for the main part of the crown, as well as the flowers.

Here’s a quick tutorial:

First I started with some washi tape and created a design by taping multiple pieces to a sheet of paper. I had purchased three different colors, but I didn’t end up using the pink.

When you’ve got your tape on the paper… it’s time to trace your crowns pattern. Then cut it out! Cut out the shape for your flower petals too. I like to freehand those.

Then I used some Edgers scissors to cut out my leaves.

When I create flowers I always like to have some sort of visual for inspiration. I found these very pretty poppies in the most recent Martha Stewart Living magazine.

I used some eyelets to hold my flower petals together.

I picked out some twigs from around the house, glued some glitter on them.

Gathered up all of my pieces and attach to a headband, glue on some tissue, and: Ta Dah!

If you have a tape creation you’d like to enter, please head on over!
