Washi Tape Valentine Puzzles

It’s National Puzzle Day so I am making puzzle shaped hearts to use up….washi tape! It’s a washi tape extravaganza! Folks, I have so much washi tape it would take 10 years to use it all at the pace I am going so I dreamed up some ideas to empty some rolls. Alas, I didn’t EMPTY any rolls, but these projects at least made a some progress on my quest!

These valentine puzzle images were what inspired my idea. If you Goggle “free heart shaped puzzle templates” you will find a huge selection and you can download and print the designs that inspire you.

Step One: print two copies of the templates on cardstock, cut out the pieces of one copy and use the other copy to assemble the washi tape covered pieces later.

Step Two: cover each piece of the puzzles with washi tape.

Step Three: after all the pieces are covered with washi tape assemble with glue stick on the other piece of matching cardstock.

For this piece, I covered the cardboard background with strips of washi tape and placed one of the puzzle piece hearts in the center along with an inspirational saying: “Courage, dear heart.”

The dark frame mat really makes the washi tape POP!

40 inches of the heart shaped washi tape and I STILL haven’t emptied the roll. LOL

These washi tape puzzle hearts are very inspiring! You can use them to decorate greeting cards, make a bunch to string into a garland, use them as gift tags…the list goes on and on.

Hope you enjoy this idea….from my heart to yours!
