Washi Tape Crafts Feather Emellished Print & A Book Review12:00:00 PM
Do you love washi tape? Washi tape was originally a Japanese item, but it's taken the craft world by storm. It's a paper based removable tape. Usually translucent, it comes in all kinds of colors and patterns. I'm pretty excited to share with you today a beautiful and quick piece of art that uses washi tape to make feathers!
Where did I get my inspiration? Are you familiar with Amy Anderson? She blogs at Mod Podge Rocks and Washi Tape Crafts and is an amazingly creative crafter. She's also a great author. She wrote the book Mod Podge Rocks a while back and just last month released Washi Tape Crafts: 110 Ways toDecorate Just About Anything – a book that will inspire you to make fun projects out of washi tape! Just so you know, I was provided with a free copy of Washi Tape Crafts for review purposes. I wasn't compensated in any other way, and all thoughts and projects that result from reading this book are my own. There are some affiliate links in this post to help you find what you're looking for, too!
Washi Tape Crafts: 110 Ways toDecorate Just About Anything has projects for just about anyone...there are projects for the non-crafter, children, and experienced crafters, too. There are decor projects, holiday projects, and even jewelry ideas! There's a clutch, bike decorating ideas, and coasters. And did I mention that this book comes with some adorable washi tape packaged right with the book? Ten rolls. I love how bright the pictures of each project are, and the directions for each project are clear and concise. The book also teaches key techniques: precision tearing, wrapping, and weaving, and how to make bows, rosettes, and other shapes; all the things you need to make your own projects awesome—plus how to seal and weatherproof designs to make them more permanent.
So back to this little print I made. Amy created some adorable feathered napkin holders for Thanksgiving for her book – all made with washi tape. We don't use napkin holders much around my house, but we do need some encouragement. My girls are my baby birds (I mean, take a look at Architecture of a Mom's logo!), so I took a favorite Bible verse and combined it with this adorable feather to make this sweet print. Of course I used more washi tape as an embellishment, too!
If you're looking for a fun craft book for yourself, a friend, or even your child, Washi Tape Crafts will be a great jumping off point for you!
