Make Your Own Washi 'tape'

Happy Hot Monday!! The weather this weekend was absurdly hot. It was in double digits at 10am when my kids were playing soccer. It was really insane and was proud of my kids for gutting it out. It was not easy to be out on that field this weekend.

Today i'm sharing some cards I created using Momenta and Xyron products. I used the small Xyron sticker maker to create some faux washi 'tape'. I cut strips of patterned paper and tore it on one end. I pushed the strips through the Xyron sticker maker to create the 'tape'.


I used the new Doodle Floral paper from Momenta for the paper strips. I paired it with Momenta birthday clear layered stickers, twine, and a great Papertrey Ink sentiment stamp. I made a trio of cards using a trio of clear layered stickers!


These were quick and easy to put together, thanks to Xyron and Momenta. Now I have a pretty nice stash of birthday cards which will come in handy in the next couple of months.

I hope you stayed COOL this weekend. It's supposed to cool down this week and I'm looking forward to some fall weather. Have a great Monday everyone!
