Washi Tape Pegs

It's the last week of my Butterfly challenge

Both Kitty and I have some more 
inspirational makes for you.

First up here is Kitty's card for you.
I'm not quite sure how the background  has 
been created so I will be hot footing it 
over to Kitty's blog to find  out the full details.

I'm so loving these colours together.
Thankyou Kitty for providing the extra makes
for this 4 week  challenge.

Now unlike Kitty I only had 2 reels of Washi  Tape
to play with so I was a bit limited in what to make
for my last piece until I hit on the idea of using pegs.

So here are my Fridge magnet Washi Tape butterfly pegs.
(Thank goodness for washdays).

Iv'e gone back to the pink/blue spotty tape 
I used to make the flip flops with  and simply dismantled 
two large wooden clothes pegs and stuck the washi tape to
one side. The other side has a strip of black magnetic 
tape adhered along its length.
I then re assembled the pegs and adhered 
some dimensional  butterfly stickers
  (two per peg)
from Anita's Pink and Blue Sets.

They are lovely and shimmery
 when the light catches their wings.

Hope to see you for the last week of  my challenge.

Oh these are awesome, Mrs. A! I love your magnetic clothespins - that's what we call them here. I wasn't sure what "peg"s were until I read your description. Such a clever idea - I might have to borrow this one! The washi tape covers the "peg" perfectly! I love those 3-D butterflies! Thank you so much for having me as your guest designer! Love, love, love butterflies - almost as much as I love kitties LOL!

These are pretty. I still have the pegs you sent to me, along with the flowers which I am very tight with!!
I like to just open the box and finger the flowers and then pack them back in carefully.

Yet another lovely Kitty Washi Tape Butterfly inspiration. And aren't you the clever one, to decorate up the clothes pins with the pretty tape & gorgeous B/fly. Will be a great way to display something in your craft room! WTGo. TFS & Hugs.

What a cute creative idea!
Kitty's card is lovely too!

Di said...

Love these! Sill have the ones you made me ages ago, with roses on, really pretty and useful too. I don't think I'd even dismantle them to cover with washi tape, or am I being too lazy? :-)
