Chipboard and Washi Tape Letters {Tutorial}

Chipboard and Washi Tape Letters {Tutorial}

One of the most neglected rooms in my house is my bedroom. Is it like that for you?

I usually close the door when people come over, and somehow, all the things that don’t have places end up here.

Plus, it seems like if I’m ever working on a project, it’s usually for the kids’ rooms or in the Living Room where people will actually see my decor…

But not anymore.

I’m trying to make my room a little bit more like a place I can getaway; close the door and relax for a few minutes. I feel like it’s the one room in the house  where I can be a little bit mushy and sappy with the decor.

I started with my Gallery Wall and our Love Letter Banner, and I’ve still got a few more projects up my sleeve!

Like these cute Chipboard & Washi Tape Letters

My inspiration from this idea came from Elyse’s master bedroom makeover, from Six Sister’s Stuff {here}. I immediately fell in love with this saying! It reminded me of the Kenny Chesney song on our wedding video. (do you see a theme of my decoration inspiration coming from songs?)

Elyse used wooden letters in her project, but I am on a MAJOR budget (of $0.00), so I had to use things I had laying around the house.

So I cut letters from Silhouette’s chipboard and used washi tape that I had in my stash.

Can you believe that’s washi tape? Believe it or not, this is the first time I’ve ever used washi tape… I know, I should be banned from the craft blog world.

Would you like to make your own?

You’ll need some chipboard letters and washi tape.

I cut my letters using my Silhouette Cameo and Silhouette’s Chipboard.

 

Start layering your washi tape on the front of your letters. Mine had a pattern, so I made sure to line it up as I went down.

You’ll want to leave some tape on the edges.

Because you’re going to fold it over onto the back.

Do that to all of your letters and you’re done.

I hung mine on the wall with painter’s tape.

See that guy in the photo? Well, he appreciates it when I don’t put holes in the wall, so he really loved this project.

Actually, that’s a lie. He thought this project was a little “too mushy”. Isn’t that the same thing he said about my Gallery Wall?

If you would like to cut these letters for yourself. I’m sharing the Silhouette cut file {here}

This is the first time I’ve used my Silhouette to cut out chipboard and I was really impressed with how well it did. You can use chipboard for a lot more than just letters, and I can’t wait to try using it in different ways.

If you’d like to try using chipboard for yourself, Silhouette is offering my readers a discount on chipboard and Silhouette bundles.
