Tip 3:Punching with Washi

I have discovered another way to get even more out of my Washi Tape - It is perfect for punching!
1.  Grab an edge punch - any brand will do so long as you can get a continual pattern or design.
2.  Adhere a strip of washi (long enough for your project)as close as you canto the edge of some removable backing (I used the backing from some sticky paper from Sawyer's Place) or transparency - but remember you're gonna punch holes in it so don't use your non-stick craft sheet!

3.  Punch your border all the way along the washi tape.

4.  Trim any little bits that didn't cut all the way through.  You will notice most, if not all, the 'confetti' will fall out.

5.  Peel from the backing and temporarily adhere to some transparency so you can experiment with placement on your project... (as seen in Tip 1)

6.  Adhere to your project and embellish.

See - easy peasy and so effective!!!
