Washi Tape Artwork Ideas

WASHI-TAPEI love washi tape! Yesterday, moseying through office supplies at Target I found some! At only $4 for a set of four makes it even better. I will admit the colors and patterns are pretty basic from Target. There are also some really adorable patterns of washi tape on Etsy too! I love this gold set on Etsy!

I printed a photo from my instagram on a 5x7 sheet. Trimmed the edges and taped the photo onto glossy white tagboard, then popped it into a frame! Ta-da! Super easy and it looks adorable!

I love keeping little moments in life like concert tickets, but I'm not really the scrapbook type. My solution, tape all my concert tickets into a frame, leaving room for more! It's a great conversation started and reminder of some really fun times! This can work with any type of tickets: flights, plays, games, etc.

A simple 8x10 print washi taped onto a piece of glossy tagboard in an 18x24 frame makes for simple, yet wonderful gallery artwork. The large amount of white space keeps your wall art looking fresh, refined and classy -- all good things in my book!

Tip: In college I took a photography class and we had to matte our photos into boards. The teacher always suggested matting your images slightly above center. I can't remember the reasoning behind it, but it really does look nice. Also, I would suggest a frame that creates at least a 3-inch white boarder around your picture.
