Since it is full season of baby shower for me, I have to do a lot of packaging and love making it a little personal for each of the packages. I quickly learnt that with a little imagination and computer skills you can do miracle without spending any money.
Here is some of the supply I bought.
Even if I have very happy with my purchases, I started to want more, with my own logo or with printing sentences and turn to my computer for ideas. Pinterest is a good start. I was able to see what was possible to do. Unfortunately, I didn't have all the graphic softwares that were needed. So I resumed to my imagination and my skills to make it happen.
Here is an example of how I made some Liberty digital washi tape
Warning: You need to know Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop at an advance level or enough otherwise I might look like it is very complicated. I hope the picture are helping.
I am a beginner myself.
What you need:
- Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop or Photoshop Element (software)
- Liberty fabric pictures or scan (work with any other print or fabric)
1 - I made a washi tape template (feel free to use it)
2 - Open Photoshop and clean the template, make the background transparent
5 - Place the fabric scan picture, trace in color and expand then drag it to your swatch.
6 - Then select you washi tape vector picture and apply swatch.
7 - Copy and paste back in Photoshop and make a photo collage with your new digital washi tape. Adjust transparency if needed so it looks like a real one when you print on paper.
Repeat process a much I you like and creat many different washi tape.
