DIY washi tape bunting card

I love cute card ideas, so when I saw this and this very sweet washi tape bunting card on Pinterest I knew I wanted to have a go myself! It was really quick and easy to do and it came out so nicely that I ended up making three of them…

I don’t really need to give a tutorial for this, you can just copy the look yourself. I cut a length of baker’s twine and cut short lengths of the washi tape, folded it in half with the twine at the fold and then cut each one into a triangle shape (this makes it neater than trying to cut the triangles first!). Then tie a bow at each end of the twine and glue to your card blank – I just used a blob of white glue for this.

For the text, I first wrote it in Word with this font and printed it out on a piece of paper. The long tails at each end of the text are the ( and ) symbols for this font.

I then placed the printout behind my card blank and traced over it with gold pen using a light box, but you could also just hold both pieces up against a window and trace it that way if you don’t have a light box.

I was so pleased with how this card came out that I made two more in different colours! Those two have already gone to some lucky birthday ladies, now I’m just waiting to send this one off soon!
