The Scotch® Brand Team
SKILL LEVEL: Easy
TIME NEEDED: Approximately 1 hour
Scotch® Brand Supplies:
- Scotch™ Expressions™ Washi Tape, Pastel Pink
- Scotch™ Expressions™ Washi Tape, Blue
- Utility knife
- Cutting mat
- White side table
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.
Cut your strips. Begin to create this design by prepping plenty of strips of Scotch™ Expressions™ Washi Tape in Blue. Here we’ve used about 20 pieces. Use your cutting mat, ruler and utility knife to cut equal length 2-inch strips.
Create the pattern. Using the 2-inch strips you’ve cut, arrange them in a square pattern, overlapping the corners to create a darker square. Use your cutting mat to also cut 2 inch strips of Scotch™ Expressions™ Washi tape in Pastel Pink and place one at the mid-point of the blue square. Repeat this pattern until you reach the opposite side of the table.
EXPERT TIP: You can play with the intensity of color by overlapping Scotch™ Expressions™ Washi tape. The slight transparency will darken in the places the tape overlaps, adding depth to the pattern.
