The days are getting warmer and longer here, which is getting me ready for Summer. And when I think summer, I think yummy summer fruits – watermelon in particular. Watermelon is just so cute, right? These washi tape watermelon handmade cards are super simple to make and perfect for getting you in a sunny mood.
- Darice Washi Tape (You will probably want red, pink, and green tapes, but play with different colors and patterns).
- Darice Blank Cards and Envelopes.
- Craft Knife.
- Cutting Mat.
- Pen or Marker.
- Wax Paper.
Begin by making a template for the shapes that represent the middle of the watermelon wedge and the rind. I just used a plate and ruler to help me create the shapes and then cut out the templates out of a scrap piece of cardstock.
Cover the center part of the wax paper with washi tape making sure to slightly overlap each piece. The black centers of the flowers on this washi tape reminded me of watermelon seeds, so I chose it for the center of the watermelon.
To make a matching envelope, place lengths of washi tape on the back flap and then trim off the excess with your craft knife.
