22 Ideas for plain' ol masking tape or washi tape

Pin It

Well, I got looking at something this morning, that involved masking tape, and I noticed how it would look great and compare to washi tape and it'd be DIY washi tape :) I can stamp it, color it, everything! I can make it look exactly how I want to!

Well then it got me thinking besides DIY washi tape, what other crafts can you do with masking tape, because I want to know how many rolls I'll have to buy today! LOL. So I decided to compile a few of my favorite projects. All link love goes back to the original sites and posts in case you would like to see more of their project and when I'm done being inspired & putting the ideas to use, I'll take a few photos of mine too! :D

Here is my list of favorite and inspiring masking tape projects....

How about using the tape as ribbon! :) Cute! 

Look at these little flowers...... 

And this is my personal favorite, use them at the top of the journaling cards (I've done this before with other stickers, etc! Quick, easy and so cute! )

Remember, you can rubberstamp or draw on the tape to give it a similar look! Take a pencil, flip it over and look at the eraser then say to yourself "That would make cute polka dots!" then take the eraser, dip it in ink and go stamping! lol

Make Garland, place card holder, bunting, Decorate an envelope,

Make table cards!
