Plan and prep. Choose your colour scheme and your product. If you would like to replicate the design we have featured in this project, simply refer to list above. This tutorial will assume you’ve selected these items.
Create the edging. To create bold black edging on the dresser drawers, make sure to apply tape with the drawers fully open. Using the Scotch Expressions™ Washi Tape, Black line the center of the tape vertically on the corner of the edge. Fold the tape so half of the strip is on the drawer front and the other wraps around the drawer edge. Repeat this on all drawers.
Create the arrow pattern. Once you have edged all your drawers you can add the arrow pattern. Using the Scotch Expressions™ Washi Tape, Gold, trim the end on a 45 degree angle, and use this as the point of your arrow. Extend the tape until you reach the black edging and trim where the two tapes meet.
Repeat. Mirror the first gold tape to complete the pointed arrow pattern, using your utility knife to trim at a 45-degree angle. You can now repeat this pattern evenly spaced down the drawer front. We have created a pattern of three arrows.
Add the green. To add some contrast to this design, use your Scotch Expressions™ Magic™ Tape, Green to space horizontal stripes on alternating drawers.
EXPERT TIP: Be sure to score the tape lightly with your utility knife when working on finished surfaces, or place a temporary piece of card stock where you are cutting to protect the surface beneath.
