Inspiration Monday Party | And Fab Features are LIVE!!

Welcome back to our 9th Inspiration Monday Linky party! We’re so happy you have decided to join in the fun today.  With almost 500 link ups last week, there were so many fabulous projects.  You guys rock!  I had a very difficult time deciding what to feature. I finally narrowed down my favorites, and here they are.  Be sure to visit them!

Don’t forget, your links are seen simultaneously on THREE blogs at the same time, so that is triple the exposure for you. (And quadruple exposure when choose a guest hostess on the 4th Monday of every month.) We would love it if you would take a moment and add the party button or link to your linky party page or list.  (The more people who know about our party, the more potential exposure for your posts!)

Washi Tape Art | with Amy from The Blissful Bee

Are you ready for a super cute Washi Tape project today?
Amy from The Blissful Bee is sharing how she made a chic,
modern, and pretty piece of art for her home!!
Enjoy 🙂

Hello everyone! I’m Amy, from The Blissful Bee and I’m so glad
to be back contributing here at twelveOeight.
Today I want to share a fun and easy DIY project using Washi Tape.
This project literally took about 5 minutes – not too bad, huh??

First, I had to gather my supplies. I made a quick trip to Target and picked up a 
$9 shadow box frame and a combo pack of washi tape.
 I wanted my artwork to be colorful, so I wanted to include multiple patterns of tape. 
Thankfully the combo pack was only $4! At a small price tag of only $13, 
I had an entirely new piece of art 🙂

Now it came time to put it all together. For the heart, I used a recycled 
piece of cardboard. In this case, it was a beer container we were about
to throw away. I opened up the cardboard box and traced a heart on the 
brown side of the cardboard. I then began laying the tape over the drawing, 
pressing firmly. I could see a faint pencil mark under the tape, 
which allowed me to cut a nice heart after the tape was applied. 
After my heart was cut out, I was ready to place it in the shadow box.
I simply taped the back of the heart and stuck it to the backing of the 
shadow box. I might glue it later down the road, 
but for now the tape is holding up just fine.

So what do you all think?? This was my first time using Washi tape
and I just loved the quick and easy results. I have a ton of leftover tape,
so I will for sure be working on another project! If you’d like to see more

Thank you so much for reading, and as always, may your heart and home be full of everything you love! xo, Tanya         linking up to: And these awesome parties:
