I’m back on the bandwagon to use up my washi tape collection! I got the idea to alternate printed out words with washi tape. The idea works with a simple message like “Happy Birthday to YOU” or a more wordy message with the sentence chopped into lines.
It is unbelievably difficult to make a dent in my washi tape collection! Fortunately I got this fun idea and I think I can empty some rolls making stacks of greeting cards.
Step One: make the base of your 5 x 7 card with cardstock.
Step 2: Print out your message to fit 5″ wide.
Step 3: Use glue stick to attach the message.
Step 4: Have fun decorating the card with colorful strips of washi tape.
“I’d take a bullet for you” is one of my best selling greeting card messages, so I hope this new version will be a hit. I made a free printable version of “You darling You” for you to print out, fold, trim and decorate. Have FUN!
I made my first (very amateurish) crafting video for this project and published it on YouTube:
P.S. Happy Birthday, Russ!

After printing on cardstock, fold in half and remove 1/2″ from top and side and 1″ from the bottom. Decorate the spaces on top, middle and bottom with strips of washi tape like the example above.
