Washi Tape Twisties Video

Hey all!

‘Tis the season to drop off little ‘happies’ to nice people like hair stylists, neighbors, coworkers, mail carriers….so I saw an idea on Pinterest using wire and washi tape for weaving a bracelet.  I was thinking it would be great just for a treat bag since ribbon can get a little spendy if you need to make a lot of them.  Although washi tape is available in most crafty stores, I love that Stampin’ Up has washi tape that coordinates with their designer papers!

 I made a quick video to show how easy the washi tape twisties are to make.

(note: I had an odd yellow cast to my film this time. I could have shot it again but I’ve got some shopping to do!)

I love the way the  3×3 cards/envelope match the washi tape twistie.  And of course chocolate anytime is great but coordinating the paper and the washi twistie was fun to do!

My 3 Gift Picks of the Week


Isn’t it pretty?  This is the new cover of our upcoming Occasions catalog! (I can’t post the whole catalog online until January 6th) If you have ordered from me this past year, you will automatically get one in the mail.  If you do not have a demonstrator and would like to request it, please email me with your name and mailing address.

Sale-A-Bration is coming also!  January 6th – March 31st.  It’s Stampin’ Up’s annual gift with $50 purchase event.  This year’s catalog is really really great and improved from last year!


My 3 picks this week for crafty gift ideas from Stampin’ Up!  Be sure to place all orders for Christmas by December 15th, especially on east coast.

I like this kit because it comes with the stamps and ink, too.  I would add the additional 20 note cards/envelopes so they can make 26 total cards.

Everything you need to send a quick note to your friends! Includes the product listed below:
* Delicate Doilies Stamp Set (wood-mount; only one image)
* Sweet Essentials Stamp (wood-mount; only “friends” image)
* Daffodil Delight Card stock flower pieces
* Old Olive Card stock flower pieces
* Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Spot
* Old Olive Stampin’ Spot
* 6 Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes
* Rhinestone Basic Jewels
Additional Supplies Needed (not included in kit):
* Glue Dots


Stack & Store Caddy holds 24 containers for embellishments!  (fits our SU containers that are 2-1/2″ diam. x 7/8″) If you or your crafty friend has a bunch of SU buttons, brads and accessories in a drawer, it would be fun to get them out where they can be seen and used!
(and for my locals, I have extra empty containers)


Emboss or Cut!

The little embosser on the right is just for those who want to use embossing folders, no cutting dies. It’s lightweight to take to a crafting day out or to give to a teen or young stamper who is just making cards.  The Big Shot of course is a lot more but it does it all, cutting and embossing.

Washi Note Cards


Does this card look familiar?  I just posted a washi card HERE not too long ago.  I needed to make some swaps for our SU Catalog Kickoff party (tell you about that tomorrow!)

Since I somehow accumulated 2 sets of that washi tape, I did a re-do of that card. I changed to diagonal washi to save time.   I added some sequins and twine, which I had to use a little punch to ‘nick’ the edges of the card so the twine could hang on.   I used the SU new note cards/envelopes, which are nice and heavy/sturdy!

I made 40 of them during an episode of Revenge….seems so wrong but right at the same time LOL

Here’s the goodies to make the card:
