Happy Birthday - DIY Washi Tape

I love washi tape but I'm also super stingy when space in my craft room.  I have an entire room but I won't let myself be overcome by any single trend.  Or at least that's what I keep telling myself... I do buy some washi tape and I use what I have because I've confined my washi tape collection to a single jar.  That's all I can have folks - it's my rule and I stick to it.

When I don't have the perfect washi for a card, I like to use my background stamps to create my own washi tape.  It's super easy and is exactly what I did on this card.  
I love it because I can create washi tape in any color or pattern I want!  I simply stamped the background patterns (this is from Fresh Squeezed Stamps Background Check) and then masked along the edges.  Then, I used the same ink and daubers and inked the entire strip to create my washi tape.   Super easy and very pretty.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day!
