Hi Everyone!! I am Mandy from Sugar Bee Crafts and I’m excited to be stopping by The CSI Project – I LOVE craft competitions, so CSI is amazing because there’s a new contest every week – nonstop fun!

Today I have a quick washi tape tutorial for you. If you haven’t heard of washi tape, where have you been?!? 🙂 It is very similar to masking tape, but with cute prints and patterns. It is a super easy way to add a little extra detail to any project. I was sent some washi tape from Downtown Tape:

In case you were wondering, the cookies were delicious!! (Find the cookies for Best Cookies Ever here)
I just love the fun that washi tape adds!
For another random idea, I found this off of the Downtown Tape site – it is now on my to-do list:
