Busy, busy time but I did my two washi tape books finished that I mentioned on Tuesday. I, actually, had plans to share something else with you but I have been crazy busy and I forgot. But this is good.
This is the alphabet book. I loved finding papers and coming up with creative ways to make them fit my letters. In the end, the book is not exactly kid friendly since I went with words like Journal and Noir. But it’s a fun and beautiful book for future play.
Then I did a Halloween one. (Well I made them at the same time since some things had to wait.)
The technique I want to share is this page. Double sided scrapbook paper is the bane of my existence. I love it but I never can find a project that lets me show off both sides, until now. I had these fun steampunk Halloween “tags” from a piece of scrapbook paper. Since the other pages in the book were 8.5 inches and these were not, I opted to go with “framing them”.
It was simple to just use the scraps from my other pages to make the frame. I decided to go with four pieces per page and alternate them. The ones on the sides faced the front while the top and bottom pieces faced the back.
I used a little piece of electrical tape to hold the frame together.
Then I added in my tag.
Taped the card in from the back side.
And taped in the other side. For some pages, I covered the top and bottom with more electrical tape to get rid of the strip of white. I did glue together the outside corners and added a little bit of electrical tape to the inside corners (which was covered when I taped the pages into the book).
The end result of both books makes me very happy. I hope you enjoy this last minute tutorial.
