Challenge #2 : Trash to Treasure using Washi Tapes

Hello Everyone !!

     I am Poornima bringing a brand new challenge for the month of July. I hope you had fun playing along our very first challenge “New Beginning & Use Bakers Twine” hosted by our DT Priya Sivaraj. We had fabulous entries and winners will be announced soon. So keep an eye on this space.

Now over to the current  challenge. The theme for our second challenge is –

Trash to Treasure using Washi Tapes

Yes, we want you to convert your trash or waste material  into treasure, recycle them into something useful. Just redecorating an item will not be considered while deciding the winners. Look for the things which are not useful and recycle them into really usable item. Remember to add Washi Tape in your projects in a really creative way.

The Craft Shop has a huge collection of washi tapes and that too at the most economic prices. Whatever is your crafting style, we have a washi tape for you. I have got mine, grab yours before they go out of stock. We have amazing tutorials lined up this month to keep you inspiring. So stay connected !!
