In January I spent a lot of time in the We R Memory Keepers booth at CHA learning about their exciting craft tools, albums, scrapbook embellishments and much more.My favorite items were the washi products. They did a lot to satisfy my addiction to Washi tape. But did you know about washi adhesive sheets? A versatile new craft supply with the look and feel of washi tape in 12″ x 12″ squares in lots of cool patterns! I could hardly wait to get my hands on all of it to play with in my studio.There are just so many things you can do with washi tape- search Washi tape on my blog for projects I’ve done, check out the fun projects on the We R Memory Keepers website, and bookmark and visit often the nifty Washi Tape Crafts website!
Here’s a quick and simple project I crafted yesterday with a washi adhesive sheet-:
A Beaded Candle Wrap
I started with a corrugated cardboard packing sheet saved from a recent assemble-yourself furniture purchase. I adhered a section of washi adhesive sheet to it, using the end of a paintbrush to press it down into the crevices as I went and peeling off the backing sheet along the way. I trimmed the washi’d section to fit around a glass candle holder.I glued small silver beads into the open ends of the corrugations, using a straight pin to place and guide the holes of the beads side to side so they wouldn’t point outward or upward. I wrapped the finished piece around a glass candle holder and tied it up with a piece of thin twine, knotting beads at the ends. The candle I used holds a waxy faux candle with LED flame. Please use great caution when crafting with real-flame candles and always follow safe candle practices. I am very excited to add all the coordinating wash tape roll sets by We R Memory Keepers to my washi tape collection. Here are just a few:
