Washi tape is the funnest trendy crafting tool!  It has taken me years to figure out a fun original way to use it, and then a couple of weeks ago, I was perusing the Dollar Tree, and I came across a knock off washi tape for less then $1! Jack Pot!  So as a result, this cute banner was born! This tutorial can be tweaked and created for any event, any room, and any style.  This tutorial also comes with a free Alphabet Template to help get you started.

Now open up your folded triangle, and align your template on top of one side, and use an Exacto Knife (or scissors), to cut out the letter outline.

3: Apply Washi Tape

On the inside of the folded triangle, apply strips of Washi Tape.

Once you have enough Washi Tape, take a glue stick (or double sided tape) and line the edges of the inside of the letter outline.  This will make the paper lay flat against the Washi Tape.

4: Punch Holes/Thread String

Punch holes in the corners of each triangle, and thread your favorite string, or ribbon.  Now find a wall, a bench, or a crib to add a little sunshine to!
