Washi Tape Pendant Banner

This is one of those posts I started LAST YEAR- yes last year...and never finished or posted! {I have lots of those posts...} In fact, some of these photos are over a year old...oops.

Since I am trying to get back into blogging....I thought I would share it with you.

 I purchased several wooden pendants from pick your plum, or some other craft deal websites. I also have a little love for washi tape. If you haven't discovered washi tape, you must! It is so easy to use, so fun, and the clean up after a project is like zero. Love it.
I covered the pendants with washi tape. I cut off the edges with scissors, so it does not wrap around to the back. In fact, I could use the other side and have two banners in one. I strung them together using baker's twine.  Here are a few of the ones I have made:
 This one I used chipboard letters.
 This one is vinyl lettering. I use this one for preschool-- in the photo below- notice the stuffed monkey/gorilla...well that is our preschool class pet. He was just attending our little celebration. :)
And if you are wondering why on earth it took me a year to post such a simple thing...well I don't get much free time these days. In fact, for Mother's Day my husband surprised me with this, a Cameo Silhouette. It is still in the box. Still in the box. I need to do clear some space- as in clean up some junk- so I have a spot to set it up. Hope that happens soon!
If you have a Silhouette- PLEASE send me your best links to projects or ideas! I am not sure where to start.
Thanks for reading....

Love this!! SO super cute. Does washi tape come in large sizes? all I have ever seen is the small kind. I am totally inspired and want to make this!
