I will admit, I saw the washi sheets when they came out in the Occasions Catalog and I didn’t give them too much thought. Sure, washi was fun, but did I really need sheets of them? Well, I finally decided to get a pack and start playing and turns out that having bigger pieces of washi is actually a lot of fun and great for all kinds of projects! In fact, I created my April Class by Mail around Washi Sheets and the Celebrate Today stamp set bundle because I was having such a great time.
See, totally fun, right? And some of the cards use big pieces of washi sheets for backgrounds, die cuts, or punch outs that you need the bigger sheets to get these looks. I have all the details of this class by mail below (or join me in person next week on the 15th in either the morning or evening class session).
But first I thought I would share one of the cards from the class that was actually the very first one I created:
You could recreate this card with regular washi tape, but the thing that is cool about the washi sheets is that you get to pick the width of the strips you want. So, say you loved yellow and wanted a wide yellow strip in addition to the skinnier yellow strip shown above – you can totally do that!
I cut my strips of washi sheets to slightly different widths and then placed them on the background paper. Then stamped with the coordinating Celebrate Today stamp set for my central sentiment.
Turned out totally cute! Don’t you agree?
