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:
