Geometric shapes are really catching my eye lately. It must be the clean and crispness that I am drawn to. It’s inspiring to see how other bloggers are sparked by certain trends as well. I’ve asked a handful of some of my favorite bloggers to share diys and projects with geometric inspiration in mind… aka Love Triangle mini series. Danyelle from Dandee Designs is the first up sharing a cool idea using washi tape and pachment paper to make your own tape shapes. I recently found Danyelle’s blog immediately enjoyed the simplicity of her style. She has some really neat projects. I especially loved the cross stitch work and her Valentines… check out Dandee Designs! Today’s she’ll show how to make a shape onto parchment paper then when you are ready to use it you can peel your shape off and attach it to your project. So fun and simple! Here ya go:
Washi Tape Shapes: I love creating art with washi tape because it’s not only economical, it’s very forgiving. If you don’t like the direction things are going, you can simply remove the tape and start again. To create this particular piece of geometric inspired art, you’ll need to gather a few supplies: washi tape in assorted colors (pick colors that will compliment your existing decor) parchment paper, scissors, cardstock.
Cut a triangle from a piece of scrap cardstock. This will be your template. You will make the layered stripes triangle on parchment paper then when you are ready to attach them to your project you will peel it off the parchment paper.
Arrange your washi tape, overlapping layers, onto the parchment paper.
Place your triangle template over the washi tape and cut around the shape.
