... and Stitched Washi Tape Christmas Cards

Hello! We have an extremely quick project for today - Washi tape Christmas cards with a "stitchy" twist!
 There's not too much to say about these - they're that simple. I paired up some co-ordinating Washi tape and cut pieces into strips (with angled edges) to form a triangle. Finished off with a piece for a tree trunk, then machine stitched all around the edge. You can try and be extremely neat about this but I think they look great a bit rough and scrappy (!!!)
 And why not try a completely different colour scheme?
I am going to do some traditional  green ones also - I have TONS of Washi tape to choose from!
Pretty simple hey?!

We are linking up to these parties!

  10. Love myself some washi tape, but I must say I'm terrified of stitching cards. Maybe I'll just have to try this out. We'd love for you to link up at our Awesome Things Tuesday link up party. http://jessicabooth.blogspot.com/2013/12/awesome-things-tuesday.html
