Fabric Washi Tape Strips Tutorial

Yeah, yeah, I know... I make alot of "fake" washi tape.  But it's so cute!  And it provides such charm, color, cuteness, whimsy, blah, blah, blah to anything and everything! So forgive me :)

I just lately tried out my idea of making this fabric washi tape... and low and behold it actually worked! yipee.
Think of all those fabric scraps you have... you could make piles of different prints of washi tape with it!!! 
oh, glorious day. 

-scissors OR rotary cutter, ruler, and cutting board
-3M Super 77 Spray Adhesive - I am in love with this stuff... I've used it forever on EVERYTHING
you can find it a number of places... I buy it at Lowes.
-pinking shears
-wax paper

It's super easy.
1. cut fabric into strips... I made them 3/4" wide
2. then cut the strips with the pinking shears into various lengths of "tape"
3. turn them upside down on cardboard or wax paper
4. spray GENEROUSLY with 3M Super 77(...outside or in your garage. duh. )
5. use immediately for best stick OR place on wax paper for use later! 

** I realized afterwards that it might be best to iron your fabric before you begin... the creases make the tape not want to lie flat... obviously.

  5. super cute!

  6. Very, very cute! Here's a question...could you spray the back of a piece of fabric, layer the wax paper over it, turn the sandwich over so the fabric is now right side up and THEN cut into strips?

  7. SassyKay- Yes, I bet that would work just fine! I haven't tried it... but I really think it would :) If you try it let me know! Blessings...
