Washi Tapes are here!!!!

Hello everyone!!

It's almost June and all through May, we've all had fun learning and sharing cards with special folds. We also welcomed Juhi Khanna - a very talented crafter, as a part of our Design Team, so it's all been busy busy. But May is not over yet and we still have something for you - something that is jaw-dropping; well, almost.

As you all know, Washi Tapes have been a craze around the crafting community recently and my God have we all been eyeing them!! So, our awesome Lulupu Store had been putting in a lot of efforts just to be able to make these available to the Indian crafters, and guess what?? They're here!!!! Yayyy!!! *Super happy*
{You can check out all the designs available at the store right here. There are more than 60 designs available}

Being a part of the Design Team must have some privileges, right? We all got to pick and order for our favourite designs while they were being ordered for the store and as a result, I have mine with me already and I am ready to share some great quick cards with you that you can easily make with Washi Tapes.

While working with these tapes I realised that not only were they super fun to play with, I didn't have to restrict  myself to a specific pattern, design or style! I could use them any way I wanted and the end result would still be AWESOME!! I made three unique designs but six cards in all (in a span of two hours... I told you it was going to be quick!) So here are the pictures of what I made. I also have videos for you that show exactly how quick and easy it was to make them. :)

For a card of this type, make sure you use tapes of the same width or it will look really messy! :)

Here's Part 1 of the video..

  4. I really, really love washi tape. I have found your blog through Pinterest and I especially love the last tape-card with the text 'you mean the world to me'. It inspired me to use the tape the same way, I posted it on my blog today. Thanks for the inspiration!
