DIY Tuesday [Washi Tape Paper Fans]

Washi Tape Paper FansNext month I'll share with you a baby shower that I've been working on; but today you get a sneak peek of some decorations I've made [and love]. Update: Here's the finished party Little Blue Baby Shower

They are super festive and easy to make: Washi Tape Paper Fans!

I work on a budget [who doesn't these days?] and these are very budget friendly. All you do is dress up plain paper with a little Washi Tape and you've got adorable party decor.




Here's what you'll need:



Materials
Washi Tape [I get mine from either: Pick your Plum or Downtown Tape]
Cardstock Paper
Paper Scoring Tool
Hot Glue/Tape/Glue Dots: Any of these will work


Step One:

Add Washi Tape to plain paper:

Step 3: Fold each sheet of paper like an accordion [forward & backwards]

Step 4: Apply glue to each of the ends

All ends should be glued together until you get a long sheet of paper, like this:

Step 5: Bring together the beginning and the end, so they form a large wheel...glue ends together

Finished!

This paper fan is huge its made from 8 pieces of 12x12 paper. You can make smaller ones by folding the paper, you just want to note where you put your tape and where you are going to fold.

  2. Thank you for this amazing tutorial! I'm just starting to use washi tape and am trying to figure out interesting ways to use it.
    I'm very curious about that little device that you used to score the paper. Can you tell me what it is? I'd love to have one!
