Washi, washi, washi!! That is the cry at my house when a new batch arrives, or when I have it out working. This week I made two washi-tape fish. They are Rainbow Trout! :D
I used old ratty file folders for the base, then freehand drew the fish on them. I tore little strips of washi tape--about 3/4" long, and put them down, overlapping the outer edges, then I folded the overhang under to the back. When I glued down the other piece on the back it sealed the edges and helped keep things from coming apart. Then I added the glitter in all the different colors. Both fish have "lips" and if you look closely you can see them. The eye on the second fish is also made from washi tape--it is the wheel of a bicycle.
