Core'dially Washi

This week Core'dinations is hopping with Xyron again!  You'll want to check out each of their blogs every day this week for inspiration and prizes!  

Have you thought about using some embossed Core'dinations Cardstock to make your own textured washi tape?   I made my own for this cute boy card and today I am going to show you how super easy it is to do this!  

To make the washi tape pieces you will want some scrap Core'dination Cardstock pieces, embossing folders, Core'dinations Sand It Gadget, Core'dinations Dust Buddy and a Xyron Create-A-Sticker.

1) Start by embossing your scrap pieces of Coredinations Cardstock and cut them to the width you want your washi tape (I did a 1/2 wide strip with my red and the width of my embossed stars on the blue).
2) Use your Core'dinations Sandit Gadget and Dust Buddy to make the core of the Core'dinations pop.  3) Rip each strip into the length you would like your washi tape to be.
4) Run your embossed and trimmed cardstock into the Create-A-Sticker.
5) Peel the adhesive strip back and voila, you have Core'dination Cardstock washi tape!
