Memories Box with Washi Tape

Hello Beautiful Crafters,
Shilpa here,
Hope you are liking our Lulupu Challenge # 37
Anything with Washi
And you must have enjoyed fabulous video tutorial by my mixed media expert teammate Jaya, if not pls watch it here.
Today its my turn, to post a inspiration project with washi tape. and I have come up with  'Memories Box'

Lulupu has the huge and beautiful collection of Washi tapes. You can find them all here. 
Few ideas - how you can use washi tapes in your craft....

  • Use creatively on your cards
  • Make book marks
  • Apply washi tapes on Gift bags/ envelopes
  • Decorate your journals/ Memory books
  • Make embellishments - Banners, small flags, cloth pins decoration, or on binder pins
  • Recycle jars, tins with just applying different varieties of washi tapes
  • Can use them on tea light
  • Make personalized gift sets 
Use your imagination and show your best way to use Washi

Let's move on to my project

I adhered  3-4 washi tapes on my white box. Washi tapes are non - permanent adhesives, and to make it permanent I coated the box with Mod podge. I love!  I created it with crafters workshop stencil and Wendy Vecchi embossing paste. I colored the textured designs with Gelatos. I applied pink color at the edges with Prima chalk Edgers.

Next I worked with this super gorgeous paper pad from Kaisercraft- Confetti   All papers in this collection are fascinating. I cut them to size required with my We are Memory Trim and score board. I made some tags too. I distressed edges with Comfort distressing tool and created layers with them by attaching foam tabs underneath.
Flowers and brads are from Prima

I decorated the inside box flap with  paper layers, Prima resin clock and flowers.

Hope you liked my project with washi.
