I had this fun little hybrid tutorial posted over at BasicGrey's blog a few days ago - Hybrid Washi Tape. Have you ever wished you had one of your favorite BG papers as a washi tape or semi-transparent overlay? I have a very simple tutorial for you today showing you how to do just that!
Step Three – Feed the paper into your printer and click print. Here is the finished print, as well as a close up showing the texture.
Step Four – Trim your printed tissue. Feed it through a Xyron machine. This is awesome for larger pieces, but keep in mind – they are very sticky and delicate and will have some light rippling when you apply them. If you are just making washi tape, you can use double sided tape, which makes the piece more sturdy.
I created this hybrid layout using the Fresh Cut Complete Collection and my tissue washi. I loved every paper from this collection, and I found the perfect sketch over at Page Maps so that I could show a bunch of them off! As usual, I created the basic layout in digital form first, then printed the pieces individually. After trimming them out, I reassembled the layout. You can see in the close up shots how transparent the tissue washi is, and also how it has a little mind of its own and shifts a little when you adhere it.
