washi-tape-book-duck-tape Along with this great giveaway I also have a tutorial on how to make Washi Tape winged embellished shoes and a tile bracelet.  Enter to win a copy of Washi Tape: 101+ Ideas for Paper Crafts, Book Arts, Fashion, Decorating, Entertaining, and Party Fun! and 8 rolls of Duck Brand Washi Tape by leaving a comment in today’s post by May 17, 2014 . Open to U.S. residents only please.

For a second chance to win a copy of the book and 8 rolls of washi tape and 13 4th of July Washi tape crafts pop on over to Craftside.

To dress up a pair of shoes with washi tape you can may die cut stickers.


One of the best parts about washi tape is that it isn’t permanent. I like these shoes plain but I thought I’d dress them up temporarily with some leopard wings and a stripe. The wings are easy to make.


Place several strips of washi tape next to each other on a piece of wax paper.


I used a Sizzix wing die cut to cut my wings (making sure I flipped the washi tape side over for the second cut so I got my wings going in both directions!)


This technique for applying the wings goes back to my signage days. Peal the backing off the wings a little bit and stick down to the side of the shoe. This way the 3 strips of tape stay where they need to be. Then continue pealing and sticking down the tape.


To make the tile bracelet I cut up a bamboo placemat and applied leopard and polka dot washi tape to the tiles.


I then strung them together with elastic cord.
