If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I love easy DIYs. My criteria of a great DIY: doesn’t require too much money, finished in less than an hour, doesn’t require advanced crafting skills, cute and fun, and most of them are created using paper. My DIYs are basically the lazy people guide to DIY (oooh, wouldn’t that be a great book title?).

So here’s another easy one: DIY Washi Birds Print

You can download the birds pattern at the end of this post. I bought those colourful Washi tapes from Rabbit and the Duck. Shannon, the owner of the shop, who is also a blogger, has a huge selection of Washi tapes.
The thick card stock is going to be the base for the birds if you’re going to frame them. I used a 250 gsm smooth white paper. But you can use any paper you like, as long as they are thick enough to be framed.

Turn the pattern sheet around and start “Washi-taping” the back of the pattern. You can definitely still see the pattern from the back so you won’t miss a spot. Use different colours for the birds and the wings!

When you’re done Washi-taping, turn the paper around and start cutting the pattern according to the lines.

Ta-da! Well, not yet. But it’s looking cute already! This is how your birds should look like after cutting.

Happy Washi-Taping!
