Washi tape note cards

Since it's my turn to do a tutorial for Catch the Bug (and it's coming up to the end of my stint as a guest designer for them - thanks, gals, for the great opportunity!), and just about any and every technique or idea has already been covered by u-tube or craft tutorials, I just went with one of those simple, but not often thought of ideas.    We all know just HOW much washi tape comes on the rolls and have oodles of designs, taking up space.   Well, this is my take on making coordinating note cards, where you can use quite of bit of tape.   As you see, I've used a simply cute Bugaboo image for the front of my card and used a strip of washi tape for the bottom border.   Just to the left of my card is what the inside of that note card looks like, with another strip of the same washi tape.   Then, my third item is the coordinating envelope with the third and final strip of tape.   This makes a great gift idea - a set of maybe 6 note cards tied together with ribbon.    Or you could do any number of them and just do them in different colors f the same design, or you could do an assorted variety, carrying along the same idea.   Hope you find this idea useful and that you have FUN doing it.
