Botanical Washi-Sticker Art

We have recently started stocking a new product in the form of rather beautiful rolls of individual washi-tape stickers in the form of individual flowers or petals. The delicacy of the paper makes them almost as beautiful as the real thing, but of course they are longer lasting and less delicate to use. They have a multitude of decorative uses, and I couldn’t wait to get stuck in and experiment with them.

There are 6 different assorted rolls available, which we are selling as a complete pack. Perfect for making cards and tags, for decorating wrapping paper and journals or anything you choose, the stickers can be used individually or combined to create your own designs. Because they are semi-transparent like real petals, they can also be layered and overlapped to create different effects as you can see below.

Because they reminded me so much of real flower petals, I thought it might be fun to try them out for creating flower fairies like the ones I did a few years ago so I have drawn a couple of templates specifically for the purpose, which I have made available as free digital downloads. Just click on the images below, then right click to download the templates. Both are designed to print out onto 5 x 7″ (portrait) sized cards.

I have also created an A4 sized summer poster ready for additional customisation either with colouring and stickers with the outline only version, or with stickers alone using the colour filled version. These are also available as free digital downloads, as follows (again, just click on the links to download the templates). Both are designed to print onto A5 landscape format card.

It should perhaps be noted at this point, that these stickers are quite fiddly and delicate to use, and therefore I don’t recommend them for young children!
