Isn't that red just perfect? It's so eye-catching and contrasts the beige and white in the best way possible.
Start with your frame -- I prefer a float frame because it's a bit more interesting since the washi tape is also slightly translucent. This frame was from Target and was on super clearance -- originally $7.99, then $3.98, then $1.98... Woot woot! Such a steal for a frame that measures 8x10 (ideal for a 5x7).
2. Next, gather your washi tape. Can you tell I have a bit of a crush on this stuff?
3. Lay one pane of glass over your cutting pad and align it to the grid lines. Start by ripping off varying lengths of tape in coordinating colors and sticking them directly onto the glass. Be sure to apply them parallel to one another but don't worry if it's not perfect because washi peels up residue free.
3. Keep on keepin' on until your glass is filled.
4. Sandwich the washi tape layer between the second piece of glass and insert the glass panes back into the frame. Guess what? You're done.
Here's a closeup of the new washi tape jewelry tray in action on top of my dresser. I can lay out some of my favorite jewelry for the week and corral it all in one stylish spot. Did you spot my DIY Lace Earrings in there?
It doesn't have to be a jewelry tray though -- it could be a soap dish, a toiletry organizer, or even a really fun piece of art in a window (remember those washi tape suncatchers I made?!)
So tell me, what would you have done with that $1.99 frame?
