Beachy Washi Tape Tag

Artful Maven

Do you have tons of Washi Tape lying around? Do you like the beach? If you answered yes to both, then create this cute tag, use up some of your stash, and make something to remind you of your next trip to the shore!


Layer by layer, add Washi Tape from bottom to top on the tag, using different ones as you go.

Trim the excess tape off, and punch a hole at the top.

Imagine the tag divided up in three, ocean, and beach. Lay the Rays stencil in the sky portion, and ink over the stencil with Buttercup Archival and an Ink Blending Tool. Remove the stencil, and use your finger to rub Glossy Accents over the stenciled image. This will make it shiny and resistant to anything other ink.

Lay the scrap piece of paper above the beach portion, and ink in the beach with Tree Branch Archival.

Ink in the ocean with Mermaid Lagoon, making it irregular instead of straight, as if the waves are rolling. Dry with a Heat Tool.

Use Mustard Seed Distress Paint and lightly paint in the reflection of the main part of the sun in the water. Dry. Add in lines of Mermaid Lagoon Paint and Picket Fence as well...blend if you want to. Dry.

Stamp the crab in the beach area with Jet Black. Dry. Stamp it as well on a scrap piece of manila, but pour Clear Embossing Powder on that. Heat emboss it with a heat tool. Cut it out, and ink over it Festive Berries Distress Ink. Foam tap this over the other crab. Ink over the sunrise/sunset with a little Rusty Hinge towards the bottom, and Mermaid Lagoon towards the top, but very lightly.

Die cut some leaves from the Garden Greens die, ink the edges with Mermaid Lagoon, and adhere them to the tag. Add the sentiment as well.

Ink over a piece of Crinkle Ribbon with Mermaid Lagoon, and then mist with water. Scrunch this up and dry with the Heat Tool. Tie this over the hole of the tag.

Use the white pen to accentuate the waves, and the black pen to add in dots over the sand.
