If you are like me, then you have a whole bunch of tapes in your crafting stash by now! I know that I have been collecting washi tapes of every color and pattern for quite a few years now! During the design process for my Styleboard Collection we talked about doing washi tapes but I wanted to do something a little bit different. So instead we designed a kraft tape with gold foil on it and a packing tape material with a white lace pattern. I LOVE how they turned out and it's a fun way to add some tapes of different materials to what you already have!

Jessy has an awesome tutorial for us today! She is showing us how to use the tapes in a creative way to make your own embellishments! It is surprising how simple it is and yet it has a unique and interesting impact! I love it when I learn how to use things I have in a new and different way!

Hey creative ladies! It's great to be back to share with you a simple tutorial I created for my layout. Decorative tapes are still very popular among scrapbookers, cardmakers & crafters. I am so happy to see that Maggie has included tapes into her Styleboard collection too! I'm going to show you how to create your own embellishments by using the tapes.

What you'll need >> Maggie Holmes Decorative Tapes, Craft Circle Punches, VellumScissors

First, all you have to do is to paste the tapes horizontally onto a piece of vellum as shown below.

Next, turn your circle punch around so that you can get a clearer picture of where to align the punch. Here I used a 1 1/8" circle punch.

I decided to use a bigger circle punch (1 1/2") as well.

Here are the punched circles. You may use your scissors to trim any rough edges so you can have a perfect looking circle.

Here's a completed layout with all the punched circles. Pretty isn't it? Absolutely adore the gold foil polkadot kraft paper too! It matched pretty well with the tapes.

I wanted to give a little dimension to this paper tag. So I layered the standout sticker onto a vellum shape & pasted it on the tag.
