Tutorial: Washi Tape Frames


I had received this idea from various blog posts that I’ve seen online and thought that it would be the perfect gift.  I love displaying pictures, especially black and white ones.  Therefore when you have a colorful frame, it definitely brings out the brightness and contrast of the black and white photo.

This project is pretty simple and even children could do it.  All you need is a wooden frame (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby), washi-type tape…decorative tape (Archivers), and scissors.  Yep, that’s it.  :)

Start by placing one strip across the edge of the frame.  Depending on the pattern on your tape, when you place the next strip you may have to go the opposite direction.

Basically, you just keep going until the whole frame is completely covered.  :)

Here’s another example that I did.  :)  This one was a little more difficult because of the pattern.

Ta-da!  :)
