Hey, did everyone have a great Thanksgiving? Here, I made you this pie:
|Try not to lick the screen.|
I don't really have a tutorial for this project. The basic steps are have ball, apply tape, but here are a few tips.
- Choose the right tape for your design. The neon ones were okay, but I really liked the graphic quality of the stripes. Polka dots might be cool.
- Some washi tape is transparent, so plan your design accordingly. Where my stripes crossed I got a cool grid effect.
- Depending on the size of your ball, the tape may be too wide to lay nicely. I cut my strips in half lengthwise and that worked well.
- Washi tape is easily removed and repositioned, so don't be afraid to try out different patterns. You can always scrap it if you don't like it.
I made one with stripes, a cool graphic snowflake (there is a black snowflake on the reverse side) and some inverted zig zags. Honestly I kind of love them, and I'm keeping my eyes peeled for interesting tape designs to make more. I'd love to see any you create!
