      Thank you, Kenzie! (I’ve missed you, lady – you’re so busy!) I really loved the way this turned out. Now I have to focus on next week’s material: glitter!

      ACK! What am I going to do?

      Thank you, Sam! You’re so sweet! We’ll see if I get through the next round. It’s glitter. Oh my… I’m having a minor panic attack just thinking about it!

    Congratulations! I am so proud of you for making it to the top 10. AND…I am not surprised at all. You totally deserve it. What an adorable project. Definitely not what I expected…so much better. I can’t wait to see what you do next round.

      Thank you, Amy! You always bolster my confidence. You’re such a good friend! The next round makes me quake in my boots: mainly because it’s glitter. Like, disco-glam-possibly-sprinkled-on-a-unicorn glitter. Gah!

      Thank you, Danni! I really liked the way this turned out in the end. Honestly, the knife did all of the dirty work on the corner seams. I was just a bit of a wus while I was handling it… envisioning large gashes and severed fingertips. You can imagine how much of a treat I am around power tools! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thank you, Krista! You would love washi tape. You’re a colorful girl, and washi tape is all about colour. Honestly, I didn’t get my tape from Michaels. I got it from a scrapbooking store (WAY more selection). You should call around to your closer scrapbooking haunts and see what they have.

    I love this project! It’s so cheery and colorful! Great use of washi tape! I have tons and have used it on everything from a hall table to a bulletin board to simply closing envelopes before I mail them. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s fabulous!

      Oh, I love the idea of using it as a simple envelope closure! What a great way to gussy it up! I think I need to start doing a bit more washi-tape research on Pinterest! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Laurie – you should try to find some! I wasn’t interested in washi tape at all before the contest, and now that I’ve used it, I love it!

      (p.s. You’re pretty awesome yourself, lady!)

      Honestly, I was throwing ideas around when it suddenly hit me: I could use it as the “pattern” on the paper! I think that this has opened up a whole new world of washi tape to me! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Dorothy,

      You can buy Washi tape at most crafty places – Michaels, scrapbooking stores have tons! – and I’m pretty sure that Target has some too. Your solid bet is Michaels and scrapbooking stores – they’ll have the biggest variety.
