Father's Day projects {Love My Tapes}

Happy Friday!  I'm here with you today to share a few "manly" projects that I made for Father's Day over at Love My Tapes :)  I'm terrible at making masculine things...mainly because I have two daughters.  I mostly scrap girly things, so it's hard for me to keep things "boyish."  I decided to give it a try for this project, and it turns out it wasn't that hard after all :D

I pulled out some neutral colored washi tapes and made long strips of them on some cardstock.  Then I punched out different sized circles to scatter around my page.  I've had the fun mustache tape for a while, but I've never used it.  This layout was perfect, and I cut out some of the mustaches and used them as cute little embellishments!  Easy!

Washi tapes are so fun, fast and easy...and those circle embellishments took me no time at all.  

I also threw together a card...and I don't particularly excel at making cards.  Especially "Dad" ones.  I went through my stash of old papers and found this red, white and blue striped piece.  I've been wanting to use this navy patterned tape for a while now, and it looked great against my paper.  I also added strips of the red & white striped tape to pull out some of the reds, and then topped it off with a strip of the mustache tape.  Easy and quick, and my dad will love it!

If I've learned anything from these projects, it's that venturing out and trying something new is okay.  And even if you're out of your comfort zone, it's nice to try something out of the ordinary for you.  I wound up liking both of these projects, even though they were intimidating at first.  You never know what you might come up with :)

You can purchase these and many other types of washi tapes HERE.  So much variety!

Have a great weekend!
