washi wednesday–envelope bookmarks

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

And welcome to March…we’ve almost made it through another winter (can you tell that I don’t especially enjoy the cold weather)!

Today I’m sharing another idea to create something using washi tape…a bookmark!

Obviously, you will need washi tape for this project.  It might be the time of year, with rainbows and pots of gold on my mind, but I chose this assortment of colors.  Any coordinating mixture of colors and patterns will work, or you could even use the same roll of tape for your entire bookmark.

You will also need an envelope and scissors.

First, draw a straight line across the corner of the envelope.

Cut off the corner.

Then, adhere short strips of washi tape across the envelope corner…be creative!

Once the envelope corner is covered in washi tape, turn it over and trim off the extra tape.

Do the same process on the other side of the envelope.
