make your own custom washi tape

one of my dreams for quite some time has been to have some custom washi tape made with one (or more) of my designs on. washi tape has been a big thing in the UK now (originating in japan) and pretty much since it became a thing here it’s been something i’ve wanted to do.

so, when wovenlabel contacted me to do just this you can bet i was excited! i had recently made my bisect collages and knew those scissors would be just perfect on something like this! the process is easy, just choose your required width and amount of rolls, then you upload your design – they provide a template for your required width. this bit was super quick and easy, and providing your design is quite simple, it shouldn’t take too long to arrange on the template as they just need a short length that they repeat for 10m.

as it’s national stationery week, i couldn’t resist making a stationery themed collage. i was umming and ahh-ing a bit over what to depict, but then i looked over at my trusty scissors and the idea struck. scissors! of course. they’re my favourite tool, one which i use for (most of) my collages, so it only seemed fair to make a little homage to them.
