Washi Memo Pad

Archive for April 2020

This card is definitely one of my favorite cards to make. Very simple, and the beauty of washi simply makes the card perfect to send for a special (or any!) occasion. This card was made with one of our spring papers, but I really think cards made with any of the washi patterns would be wonderful!

Have one sheet of our 8 1/2×11″ washi and one of your favorite cardstock (8 1/2 x 11″)), one strand of mizuhiki cord (about 12 inches long) ready. Also, keep your favorite craft tools of double stick tape, glue dots, scissors, and paper cutter handy.

TIP: Picking up similar colors silk screened on the washi for your cardstock and mizuhiki cord is a GREAT way to coordinate colors for the card. I chose ivory cardstock, but I also could’ve picked a light peach, light olive or even a navy….it would all still “work”, but give a different effect.

Card #1 – love the simplicity – the beauty of washi says it all….
  • To start, cut the washi lengthwise, 5 1/4” x 10 1/2”
  • Cut the cardstock lengthwise, 5 1/2” x 11”
  • Tri fold the cardstock, leaving about 1” margin
  • Take the unfolded straight edge of the washi, and adhere to the inside flap of the cardstock, leaving about 1/4” margin.
  • Wrap washi around the cardstock

Ta Da~! All done!

Hope you liked making this card! If you don’t mind, post your creation on our FB posting – I would love to see them!
