How to make DIY washi tape cocktail sticks

1. Look for different rolls of washi tape that look good together.

2. Cut three, 4 inch strips from the washi tape and cut the strips in thinner strips.

3. Fold the strips around the wood skewer from the top down (see picture).

4. Finish folding all the washi tape around the wood skewer.

5. Use scissors to curl the edges of the washi tape, like you would curl ribbon.

6. That’s it. Enjoy your cocktail! XO Wilma

    You should do a 10 day marathon with plain white A4 paper- i have so much lying around it’s ridiculous and i don’t buy scrapbooking paper. p.s. do you know where i can get washi tape thats a bit cheaper than £1.75 or whatever cos i dont really have a lot of money right now and £1.75 seems a little steep, you know? thank you x great blog by the way!

      I will think about the plain white A4 paper. I found the washi tape I used here at a Dutch low budget store called ‘Action’. Sometimes those kind of stores have really great craft items, but you have to be lucky…
