Valentine Scrapbooking with Washi TapeI have some awesome washi tapes and tags from Downtown Tape lying on my desk, so I made a scrapbook project for this upcoming Valentine’s Day. It is so fun and colorful to work with washi tape, basically, this is a fail-proof project. Even kids can do this for their parents 
Working with washi tape is easy, the tape is tacky and at the same time it is adjustable. If you stick it at the wrong position, simply lift it up and stick again immediately. No trace of glue line left behind and it won’t hurt your paper as well. The colorful prints and patterns are great for decorations too.
With the template I have prepared for this project (in pdf format), just download it and print it on your plain card-stock and you are good to create a pretty pinkish Valentine’s Scrapbooking Display with the tutorial on next page.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

Cut Out the “February 14th” from the printout.
Attach it on the photo frame card trim with washi tape
Cut a pink card stock and place it at the center of the card trim, as the background of the heart.
To make the washi flag garland:
Cut a short length, approx. 8″ long of jute string. Wrap washi tape around it, about 3/4″ each color.
Trim the torn edges of the washi tape to about 1/2″ length. If you want a longer flag garland, you can trim lesser.
Cut a V shaped from the bottom center of the washi tape to make the flag.
Place the garland on the top left corner of the card, secure the jute string by taping the ends on the wrong side.
Tape the washi tape on the heart-shaped printout of the pattern. You can go any direction, horizontal, diagonal or vertical.
Cut out the hearts.
Glue the hearts on the bigger heart follow the picture or you can arrange the way you like.
To make the washi bow:
1. Fold the washi tape 3 times.
2. Tie a knot
3. Pull it tightly
4. Trim off the extra length.
To make the heart balloon on the card trim: Glue a heart on the card trim, and glue a jute string at the bottom, then glue the washi bow on the jute string.
Hang the love tag on the flag garland to complete the Valentine Scrapbooking display.
Hang it up on a wall as a photo frame, sit on the shelf as a Valentine display, or you can even use it to serve treat to your loved ones.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
