Can you say "use up some washi tape?" Doesn't that sound good? And it's pretty darn easy to create a plaid with washi. Put your vertical strips down onto a piece of CS, extending them over the edge to hold it down. Lift every other strip, pulling it back and sticking it temporarily to your work surface. Lay down a horizontal strip. Pull the lifted strips back into place and lift the other every-other strips. Repeat.
TIP: I used stitching on the banner and sentiment strip cuz adhesive doesn't stick too well to washi. Plus it fits the mood (as in board).
I'm using the Mood Board from WPlus9 again. And the recipe to use washi is from Catered Crop Washi's Up? And since I can, I'm joining the fun at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge one more time. Who wouldn't love some free shopping over there? I've got a wish list a mile long.
Here's wishing you a fun week!
