3D Flower Elements
As you can see above, there are 6 washi tapes included in the Purple Picturesque Washi Flower set. I’ll be using three in today’s video and projects. Below I used the Frangipani washi tape to create easy 3-dimensional plumeria flowers.
Watch the video for a simple tip to prevent the upper 2/3 of the petals from sticking to each other. In addition, to Purple Picturesque I layered Journal Memory Washi Tape and butterfly wings for more interest. The hello sentiment is stamped on a label from the 60 Piece Vintage Kraft Stickers set.
Color Your Washi Tape
Customize your washi tape by coloring it. Plumeria flowers come in range of beautiful colors. While this tape set only includes a yellow and white flower the tape can be colored with Copic markers, color pencils, or other coloring media to customize the blooms.
3rd Way To Use Petal Washi Tape
Use the same washi tape petals and create more variety with partially open long-stem blooms. As seen in the video, I started each of these projects with Gel Press printing to create textured backdrops for these lovely blooms. In this case, loads of white space sets off these partially opened blooms.
To finish off the blooms, I colored simple stems with Polychromos pencils. Extend the coloring to the base of the blooms for a more cohesive look.

Huge 3D Hydrangea
This petal washi tape is unique to the set as it can be used as petals and individual flowers. Several different color variations are included which creates a more realistic effect. As seen here, this washi tape is highly effective when grouped together as a huge hydrangea flower.
Here I created several layers of dimension with foam squares stacked one and two squares high. Given this 3-dimensional flower is domed quite high, I’d recommend this card be hand-delivered or delivered in a card box versus a regular envelope.

5th Way To Use Petal Washi Tape
To be sure this is the easiest way to use petal washi tape is to use it for pressed flowers. Simply adhere it to your card, scrapbook, and other papercraft projects and a stem. Because washi tape is semi-transparent you can see through the petals just as you would with real pressed flowers.
Here I paired the pressed flowers with Map Memory Washi Tape and a torn piece of gel printed paper. Again color the base of the petals to complete the look of the stem. And that’s a wrap on 5 ways to use petal washi tape.
