Washi Memo Pad

The Beauty of Washi Speaks for Itself On This Card…..

Posted on: April 17, 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!

Send one of your creations to a family member, friend, teacher or acquaintance to let them know you are thinking about them….how special to connect or re-connect in this way….!

“Talk” to you again soon!
