1. Draw a pencil line down the middle of your base. You are going to add a piece of tape at a 45 degree angle to your pencil line. Now, I just eyeballed mine, however, I noticed that my final design was a bit skewed, so it is important that you get a 45 degree angle (time to break out the protractor!).
3. Alternating sides, keep adding strips of washi. Make sure you stick to the same pattern/order of tapes on each side.
4. After your area has been totally covered, turn your base over and trim off all the excess tape!
5. Now you can use it as a card base, cut out a tag shape, or even as a piece of patterned paper on a layout!
Here is a simple card I made using my base. I kept it simple because of the busy pattern that I really wanted to stand out!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Easter Weekend!
