Pleated Washi Frame Tutorial

It's my turn to share another tutorial over on the DeNami Design blog today! A few weeks ago I shared some ideas for using pleated washi tape in my April Ways With Washi feature. One of my projects featured a ruffled frame constructed from pleated washi tape. So I thought that today I'd show, step by step, how you can do this yourself. Be sure to check out the DeNami Design blog to see how to turn this

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous weekend,
Emily

You make it look so easy - I just might be brave enough to try this technique. I can pleat ribbon, but have never thought to do washi. You are so creative Emily! Your tutorials are always awesome!
