How To Make Your Easy Washi Tape Heart Card
Fold your cardstock into your desired card size. I made two cards from a single A4 size piece of card and used the spare card from this sheet to make the heart.
Using a piece of scrap paper draw a heart. Fold the heart in half and choose the best side to cut around, this ensures that you have a symmetrical heart. Alternatively, you can fold the scrap paper in half and just draw have the heart shape. Cut your paper heart shape out.
Take the paper heart and lay in on the center of the folded card. Draw around with a pen or a pencil. Carefully cut the heart shape out.
Using the spare cardstock draw another heart and cut out. This heart will be used to make the washi tape heart. To make the washi tape heart place it on a table. Take strips of washi tape and place them onto the heart, sticking down well. Peel the heart off the table and stick the overhanging washi tape to the back of the heart. We did a striped design but you can lay the washi tape in any direction you like. For children let them play around and come up with their own washi tape layout.
Using a glue stick or other glue, stick the washi tape heart to the inside of the card so you can see it through the heart cutout.
How easy is that!
