DIY Washi Tape Popsicle Cards



With the official start of summer just a couple days away, these popsicle-shaped washi tape cards are the perfect hot weather greeting!



For the longest time, I was puzzled by our wood grain washi tape - I knew I liked it, but I couldn't quite wrap my head around what to do with it. You know, other than decorate things! And then, it hit me - wood grain washi tape makes for the best-looking popsicle sticks since, well, popsicle sticks!



To craft these cute cards, start with a piece of card stock approximately 10cm x 24cm.
Fold in half - your card should now be approximately 10cm x 12cm.
Cut folded card stock into a popsicle shape - kind of like a triangle with a rounded top and corners - or a piece of candy corn you've already bitten the tip off. Make sure you don't cut through the fold at the top! My final cards (without sticks) are about 9cm x 12cm.
Cover one or both sides with washi tape strips.



To make the stick, cut a strip of cardstock approximately 1.5cm x 10cm. Cover both sides with wood grain washi tape. Round one edge. Tape to the inside of your card.



If you'd like to mail your popsicle card, simply fold the stick inside the card before sliding into your envelope.



Pretty cute, right? Check back tomorrow for another version of popsicle cards!

Happy crafting!

    1. Hi Mary, we don't have a Pin It button because we don't always blog original content - while we're happy to share our projects far & wide on Pinterest, we don't want to infringe on the copyright of others. If you add a Pin It button to your web browser, you can easily pin from our site & any site that allows pinning.

      Otherwise, we'd love it if you followed us on Pinterest - you can find all our projects there as well as lots of other great inspiration: http://pinterest.com/OmiyageCA/

  3. You say you don't have a pin it button on your blog because you "don't want to infringe on the copyright of others", yet you are encouraging others to pin your images "Saying you can easily pin from your site" so they can infringe on the copyright of others ??????

  4. Hi Carolyn – thanks for your comment. Allow me a moment to clarify. In the past we often shared the work of artists. Now, we have moved into sharing mainly (if not all) original content. As there are still shared art images on this site, we do not want to expressly give permission for readers to pin the work of others with a Pin It function right on each picture. This is in case the artists do not want their work on Pinterest. It is not our place to give that permission. Should an artist request that their work be removed from this blog, we would promptly do so – I am happy to say that that has never happened. When the art posts were written, there was always an effort made to contact the artist to let them know about the feature.

    I’m sorry if I was not clear but the point of my comment was that it is easy to pin our original content with a web browser pin it button, if desired. I was not trying to encourage anyone to infringe on the copyright of others.
