I usually just use board paper and then use washi tape to decorate it. I have fun making them and friends who have received these homemade postcards seem to like them. I started out with just using different designs and using them as strips to fill up a card:
Then I experimented with this Singapore Zoo-themed postcard out of the zoo’s paper bag and the safari Singapore limited edition MT tape. I initially made it for someone who loves the tapir because I couldn’t find a tapir postcard from the zoo’s souvenir shop then I ended up making several for other friends as well.
After that, I made a couple more out of gift wrappers and tape designs that go well with them:
I think one of the reasons why I like postcards and washi tape is because they’re little pieces of art. I can’t get over how cute or pretty some of the designs are and I just want to keep collecting them.
What do you think of these washi postcards? Have you heard of washi tape before? More than a few blog friends have told me that they didn’t even know what washi tape was until I started talking about it. :P It’s almost midnight in this side of the world and as always, I’m wondering where did the weekend go. Hope you all had a lovely, restful weekend.
