Home made tissue tape

Hi crafty friends!
It's Kristie here from Kristie Kreates
with my monthly craft tutorial.
Today I'm going to show you just how easy it is to
 make your own tissue tape. 
There are several different names for this tape,
some call it Washi Tape, some tissue tape and some just plain crafting tape.
Whatever you call it though, it's easy to make and fun to use.
All you need is some tissue paper and double sided tape.
Here's how easy it is, cut off a piece of double sided tape and stick it onto the BACK SIDE of the tissue paper.
Using a scissors or paper cutter, cut along each side of the tape.
That's all there is to it. 
You now have tissue tape that is ready when you are.
 When you are ready to use the tissue tape, just remove the backing and stick it onto whatever project you like.

I put pieces of the tape onto white card stock,
trimmed it down and adhered it to a black card base.
 
I added a button and embroidery floss and the card was complete.
One thing you will want to keep in mind
when you use the tissue tape, is the color you apply it to. 
In this picture, you can see
 that I used it on black card stock. 
Because this is tissue tape,
 it is very thin and the black behind the tape
 will show through and change the look of the tape,
giving a very different look than
when it was applied on white card stock.
 
Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope you will try making some tissue tape
 and using it on some projects.
It's easy and it's fun.
 
I'd love to hear what you do with your tissue tape!
Leave a comment, if you will.
I'd also love for you to stop in at my blog
and see what I've been creating at
 
Until next month, have fun creating!
