DIY Pop Letters Washi Tape Cards


Looking for another card design to add to your repertoire?

Here's a simple way to make notecards with a little extra POP of fun! Lightweight wooden letters covered in washi tape add dimension to the front of your cards. And they're pretty darn cute too - if I do say myself.


I snagged a set of wooden letters for a steal when we were out and about last weekend. I wasn't quite sure what to do with them, but thought they might be cute with a little washi love. Because what isn't, right?!!


Start by applying strips of tape to the front of your letters. You want to line up the pattern (if possible) without overlapping strips. Then flip the letter over and cut out with a craft knife.


You'll need a nice sharp knife and a steady hand to get into close corners. Mine look a little rough around the edges but they're still cute!


Once your letter(s) is all cut out, it's time to glue it to the front of your card.


If you're into lots of colour and pattern, try a simple monogram on a not-so-simple striped background.


Or try a sweet (but bold) message on a plain background.


Either way, I hope you're inspired to reach out and say "Hi" to someone with a little snail mail!

Have you ever tried adding wooden or other dimensional elements to your homemade cards?

Any suggestions for other ways to use washi-covered wooden letters?

Sent or received any pretty mail lately?

I'd love to hear all about it in the comments!
