Hi there! Chantalle with you again and today I’d like to share an idea for some easy wall art for your home, using the new Animal Washi Tape dispensers. The Scotty Dog and Rhino shapes are not only wonderful fun for your workspace, the clever serrated edge makes tearing off a bit of tape a breeze.
To compliment the bright colours and fun patterns of the tapes, I’ve chosen to work with some gorgeous FUSEable paper in coordinating shades. I’ve chosen some simple patterns to really let the washi shine. To start, I’ve set some large letters (initials of my children) in Silhouette Studio.
I used the Silhouette Vinyl setting but adjusted the blade from 1 to 4 with a double cut. (I always set the speed pretty slow to ensure a nice clean cut.)
I wanted the washi to show through from behind the paper, so I then traced the cut letter shape with a pencil onto some plain white cardstock, adding alternating strips of washi tape to cover the shape.
I did two letters, an E for my Daughter and a J for my Son. These were now ready for me to add my FUSEable paper over the top.
For an extra bit of detail, I chose to add a little bit of pink FUSEable ruffle strip to my Daughter’s one. I love that it is cleverly pre-marked so you know exactly where to fold it! NOTE: The FUSEable papers and embellishments feel slightly different to fusing a sleeve, as you can allow an extra second or so to melt the plastic. Take your time when rolling across the media, especially with the ruffle strips which are a bit thicker once folded.
A closer look at that gorgeous washi with a couple of FUSEable butterflies.
Here’s how my Son’s one turned out. I adore that cute pup! Both of the 12×12 papers have been raised on some foam tape so the different prints don’t blend in together too much.
I’ve displayed each monogram picture inside an Organization Gallery box frame and they look great on the walls in their rooms!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Wishing you lots of fun with your Animal Washi Tape Dispenser!
