I've had some very important little visitors (check out my Instagram) here this week so I only had time for a super quick, but very pretty, project~
I have 1 roll of Washi tape that I've barely used so I wanted to try to come up with something interesting to show it off, plus I wanted some new earrings. Voila! The Washi Acetate earrings were born~
Here's what you need if you want to make your own:
-Earrings findings (shepard's hooks + 4 jump rings)
-pliers, small hole punch (not shown)
1) In order to stabilize your washi tape so that you can cut it, take a piece approximately 6" long and stick it down onto your acetate sheet.
|Depending on how long you want your earrings|
to hang, this should make 1 pair.
3) Punch a small hole in the center near the top of each rectangle.
4) My washi tape is pretty subtle so I inked the edges to bring out the scallop a bit more.
5) Add 2 jump rings (so it will hang the right way) and attach to your earring finding.
That's it! I added a couple of little crystals to the bottoms of mine to add a bit of sparkle but that's basically it.
This entire project took me less than 10 minutes to do. Try different decorative scissors with different washi tapes. If you don't have a piece of acetate laying around you could just use some scrapbooking paper or cardstock. I just like the glassy resin look I get with acetate.
Do you have a washi tape collection? It's a trend I sort of passed on, probably because I knew if I started buying it I wouldn't stop. What do you do with it all? Leave a comment below~
