Get Those Laminators Out! Make Awesome Embellishments!!

Hi everyone 🙂

I am back with another really cool lamination idea! I have know idea if this has been done before by anyone. It most likely has but it was just something i came up with yesterday. You may be able to tell by the picture but basically i have been laminating washi tape! Its so cool.

Many of us have so many washi tapes but have know clue what to do with them. This way you can use them up while making colourful embellishments etc! I only laminated one side of it so that you can then die cut with ease. You really have know idea its washi tape when your finished and the other cool thing is it really looks like you have put glossy accents on top. How cool is that???

As i said in the tutorial, i find that some washi tapes just don’t want to stick! This way you have know worry of that and you end up with beautiful die cuts that are very sturdy. I just took some thick card stock and attached my washi so the card was completely covered. I trimmed off the overhang and then ran two pieces through my Laminator. You can use glossy or matt pouches. I used glossy as i like the look of it on sentiments.

I hope you like this idea. Get your Washi tapes, card, Laminator and dies out and have some fun creating cool embellishments. What a brilliant way to use that washi tape.

Below i will put a link to the Youtbe video.

I will be back again soon.

Love Ann xx
