3 Ways to Use Washi Tape on Cards
Washi tape is one of our must-have craft supplies – it’s just so versatile! From scrapbooks to decoration, it can be used on almost every project, but let’s not forget the humble card. It’s a great starting point for beginners to card making too; make simple shapes and patterns in bold colours and effects for an achievable but professional looking project.
