As I was brain storming what new thing I could do with washi tape I thought why not unroll the tape and fold it back and forth like the ribbon frosting technique? Of course this thought came at about 2:30 a.m. So, what does any avid stamper do? They get up and try it! So, there I was in the dark with my dog by my side trying "washi frosting!" It turned out fluffy and fun and made a background unlike any other I have made.
I love the text graphic images from the Me=Grateful stamp set which are a perfect fit for this month's thankful theme. I inked two coordinating images up with Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, and Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Markers, stamped them on Whisper White card stock, and then cut them out with the Lots of Labels Framelits. A stack of "thanks," from the Greetings Thinlets, finished the text block for just a bit more texture and depth.
I embellished a Square Pillow Box with my spiral patchwork washi tape flower and a simple tag stamped with another image from the Me=Grateful set. When making these pillow boxes I like to combine a piece of DSP with a piece of card stock to give these little boxes a bit more sturdiness. Plus it stretches my DSP if I am doing a make-n-take or mass producing. I almost always wrap my decor around the glued sides of the box so I can easily open the boxes to add whatever fun goodie will get packed inside.
