Today’s project is a washi tape and resin craft that makes the perfect Valentine’s Day gift! Follow along as we die cut washi tape and apply ICE resin for a quick and easy charm that you can customize to fit your needs.
I was inspired on a recent trip to the craft store by these Valentine’s Day prints on washi tape by Hampton Arts.
I covered white card stock with strips of the tape as shown.
I folded the excess tape over the back of the paper. If you want your charms two sided, you could cover the entire back in tape as well, or use printed scrap book paper instead of white card stock.
I cut the tape covered paper with these heart dies by Spellbinder’s Media Mixage.
Here is what they look like after die cutting the shapes.
I sealed the front and back of the hearts with Iced Enamels Medium. If you don’t seal the paper tape, the resin will darken it and look funny. Let dry.
Following the directions on the resin package, I mixed the two parts in a plastic dixie cup with a clean craft stick.
Use the toothpick to drip the resin onto the hearts.
Hole punch the hearts once dry. The resin instructions say 6-12 hours. I let mine sit overnight and used a jewelry hole punch to place holes for jump rings.
Add keychain fobs and other charms. I went for keychains with the larger hearts. I will be using the smaller hearts for earrings!
