Washi Tape Makes Great Clothing

Video tutorial on how to dress a doll in washi tape with Artysville's tape by Carolyn Dube

Aimee over at Artsyville has designed the most playful and fun washsi tape!  6 amazing designs that capture the color of the rainbow and you know how much I love the rainbow.   And Aimee is giving one lucky commenter a set of 6!

The plain kewpie doll I had on the shelf raised her plastic hand and shouted “pick me pick me” when I brought the tape into my studio.    Now she is all dressed in high fashion washi tape clothing.  I captured it all on film for you to see so you too can dress with washi tape.

You can watch Dressing a doll with washi tape on YouTube here.

Where do I put my newly clothed doll? On my shelf with my art supplies of course.  She now looks over me and makes sure I use a rainbow in everything I do…








You can find Aimee’s washi tape in her Etsy shop here and on her website here.

Everyone who leaves a comment by Tuesday, Sept. 24th at midnight EST will be entered into the drawing for a set of all 6 of these amazing tapes!



Have you seen all the stops on this hop? there is some incredible washi tape inspiration happening!  There are still giveaways open on many of the stops too…

    Oh my goodness, she is amazing Carolyn! I’ve so been enjoying this hop. My rolls of tape arrived this week (yea!!) so I’ll be making some collages with them this weekend. They’re all just so gorgeous–especially as an outfit!

  • Jana September 19, 2013, 5:29 am

    I wouldn’t have thought of that! Perhaps because there aren’t any dolls around here – all boys 😉 …BUT I see opportunities now to ‘dress up’ there road sides and houses.

    I’m following along this blog hop – always good to discover new places 🙂
    Thanks for the opportunity!
    Cheers, Jana
