Washi Tape Bangle

We’re keeping it easy today.  I’ve been off the grid a lot more than usual.  I didn’t link up anywhere last week – super weird for me.  I plowed through (pardon the pun) the Fifty Shades series on Thursday and Friday and I stayed home sick yesterday, boo.

I love this bracelet idea because everyone inevitably seems to have an almost finished roll of painters tape and Washi Tape is the trendiest kid on the block.  You can make these bangles in any color and style you can dream up…and that they make Washi tape for.  These bracelets seriously take 5 minutes at most – it depends on how OCD you are.  🙂

See, this it it.  Really.
Washi Tape Bangle 2
Start your tape wrapping on the inside of the tape spool at a diagonal angle.
I placed my tape in line with the seam on the inside for evenness.
Washi Tape Bangle 3
Wrap the tape around the spool.
There will be spaces between the tape.
Washi Tape Bangle 4
Once wrap around.
Washi Tape Bangle 5
2nd wrap around.
The tape starts to overlap, which is okay.  It helps hide the brown base color.
Keep wrapping until the tape spool is covered.
The last time you wrap the tape around, stretch the tape to fill in any remaining gaps.
You want any folded, crinkled parts of the tape on the inside, keep the outside flat.

5 minutes.
Cute bracelet.
Make an armful in bright mismatched or coordinating colors!

    Hey, Julie. Just wanted to stop by and say hi. I've been having trouble commenting on your blog. When I click on comment I get a 404 page not found error. Finally I can comment! I never got a chance to thank you for hosting Whatsits last week.

    Cute bracelet! I have no idea what washi tape is though. LOL!
