Washi Tape Flower Tutorial and Card

Hi ya everyone!  I'm sharing a tutorial at She's A Sassy Lady.  Today I want to share with you how I made this simple Valentine's Day Card.  More specifically how I created these little flowers using Washi tape that I received from iCopic.  Washi tape is extrememly cheap and comes in a huge range of colors.  It can be used for a number of things but in this tutorial I show you how to make these small roses.
For those that don't like to watch videos you simply unroll over a foot or so of Washi tape and roll it and twist it long ways in your hands.  Use a pair of tweezers and start rolling around the tweezers to form the spiral shown on the card.  Once you are finished place a pearl in the center and then add a bit of glitter to make it sparkle.  I also used my Cuttlebug to create the leaves using Spellbinders Shapebilities.
The sentiment is from Sassy Lady's designer very own, Kimberly from My Craft Spot.  I hope enjoyed this simple tutorial.  I look forward to hearing your lovely comments!  For more fun projects stop by She's A Sassy Lady!
