One of the things I love best about washi tape is how versatile it is! You can do so many different things with it and in so many ways! Today I have a tutorial about how to use washi tape to make cute little rosette embellishments.
After selecting my colors the first step was to pull about 12" inches of tape from my roll. Carefully twist the tape over and over; adjust as your tape as you twist so the sticky sides are mainly touching each other. Little tip--If you end up with a lot of the sticky side showing it's not a problem, just give the finished rosette a little dusting of glitter at the end.
Eventually you will have a thin "rope" of washi tape. The amount of twisting you do will determine just how thin your "rope" ends up being. For these small flowers I wanted my "ropes" to be very thin, however, if you wanted to make larger flowers you could twist less and end up with a thicker "rope."
I punched a small 1" circle from white cardstock and added a small amount of hot glue to the center of it. Any strong, fast drying glue or glue dots will work, I just happened to have hot glue handy so that's what I used. I started wrapping my washi tape "rope" into a rosette starting in the center of my circle and then worked my way outward. I added more glue as I wound up my rosette, plus a little extra at the edge of the circle to secure the end.
I repeated this process for all three colors of tape, and then added matching colors of Sunflower Stones to the center of each rosette.
They made very fun and pretty focal points to my thank you card. I also added some Twine, Jellies, and rub-ons to complete my card.
I hope you will give making washi tape rosettes a try!
