I chose two DIY Decor Tape styles (4″ Jade DIY Decor Tape & 8″ Floralicous DIY Decor Tape), a clipboard and I cut a shape out using my Silhouette and chalkboard paper. You could also cut your own stencil with Hazel & Ruby Cut Your Own Stencil-Mask sheets, and paint it with chalk paint. { I was out of paint}

I then covered my clipboard and trimmed and wrapped the edges around to the backside. I liked the two tone effect. I am going to make some mini gold polkadot clipboards for my office..

Then I adhered my cut chalk shape to the board…and that’s it..Fast and easy gift..or something cute for your office. I also covered a magnet sheet with the DIY Decor Tape and ran it through my die cut machine and made a few circle magnets for the clip part. Please share with us if you make a clipboard using our DIY Decor Tape!!!

DIY Decor Tape is also for Mixed Media Wall Art

Hey guys, Katie here! Today I wanted to share with you the tutorial of how I made this fun, mixed media wall art featuring Hazel and Ruby’s new DIY Decor Tape. If you haven’t heard of it yet, the DIY Decor tape is like giant washi tape and it’s AMAZING!
It’s perfect for restyled furniture and home decor, but I wanted to try using it in an art project as well.
Supplies: DIY Decor Tape, Canvas, Blindside Alpha Stencil Masks, Black Paint, gel pen, black marker
I started by printing out a simple map of the world and covered it with a roll of the 4″ green DIY Decor Tape. The Decor Tape is see through enough that I could see the outlines to cut out the shapes.

I spray painted my canvas mint using some Krylon Paint. Once that was dry, I covered it with the gold polka dot DIY Decor Tape. I love how it has a slight mint tint to it.

I added my quote to the bottom half of the canvas using the Blindside Alpha stencil masks. If you have trouble getting your letters straight, use a see through ruler (this is a quilting ruler) to line them up.

I drew around my letters, peeled them up and filled them in with black acrylic paint.

Once my letters were dry, I peeled my Decor Tape continents off of the paper map and placed them down on to the top half of my canvas.

I also decided to outline them with a black marker, and outline my quote using a neon gel pen.

I now have a shiny new piece of art for my wall! The DIY Decor Tape made a fantastic background on my canvas as well as making it easy to get the map shapes!
