How to make your own custom DIY washi tape…..

Remember when a couple of years ago, when the only tape you could get was clear and  beige…?

Oh the advances we’ve made. 🙂

I love washi tape. It has a great light weight feel to it, but it also has a prettiness. While there are a lot of choices, sometimes I can’t find a color or pattern I want, so I thought it would be a perfect project to make my own!

Here’s a great way to make your own DIY washi tape!
