You are my sunshine....

Happy Happy Monday.  I'm up on the Love My Tape blog today with a layout I created for CHA and Love My Tapes, using fabric tape! 

I wanted to create a fast and simple layout that really showcases a super easy technique - creating custom flowers out of fabric tape.


I used the following fabric tapes for my flower:

Wild Flowers, Lily

To create the flower, use an extra large Gluber or a large glue dot or piece of adhesive. Cut pieces of fabric tape approx. 2 1/2 - 3 inches long, keeping the adhesive backing attached.


After you cut your pieces (approx 20-30 strips - depending on how full you want your flower), began assembling the flower.

Remove approx 1/4 inch of the adhesive backing from a piece of tape, fold the strip in half and adhere the tape to itself. Attach the piece to the Gluber or large glue dot.


Continue layering the strips of tape around the glue dot until satisfied with the shape of your flower.
Add a flower shaped sticker and button, with twine, to the tape flower and adhere to your project. Easy peasy, huh?





I would love to see your fabric and washi tape flowers. Send me a link to your projects!  :)
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
