Each Christmas we make our own Christmas cards to hand out. I normally then go and make loads more of them for my own ones. This years one are tape resist christmas cards, and I think that they could possibly be the best ones that we have made (so far).

Make sure you follow my Christmas board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make tape resist christmas cards you will need:

  • Washi tape
  • Blank cards
  • Water paints
  • Paint brushes

Start by using the washi tape to create you design on the front of your card. EC managed to do all his designs on the back of the cards. As a result all of his open back to front.

Then cover the design with paint.

When it has dried, carefully remove the tape from the card.

The card that BB helped paint.

Although BB was too small to really do the tape designing part, he did join in with the painting. Much to the annoyance of YC and EC as BB kept mixing all the colours together. Never mind. He enjoyed himself. And all the cards turned out beautifully.
