Washi Tape Background Tutorial

When I decided to add a washi tape background to this page, I knew there had to be a better way of doing it than just cutting each piece to fit before sticking it down. I wanted to make sure my line around the image was clean and shapely. Using tracing paper (or baking paper in my case) was the perfect way to create a template. Here is how I did it.

STEP 1

Using tracing paper (or baking paper), place a sheet over your page and trace the area you want to add the background to. This is now your template.

STEP 2

Apply your washi tape to the template, being sure to overlap each strip and to cover the template lines.

STEP 3

Turn the template over and cut along your traced lines, giving yourself a half-inch allowance around the page edges.

STEP 4

Carefully peel the washi off in one piece and stick it to your page.

STEP 5

Trim off the excess washi and you are done!
