Several weeks ago Consumer Crafts had a blowout sale on washi tape for just $1 per roll. Needless to say, I went hog wild and purchased a roll of practically every design they had. It doesn’t take much to make this girl happy! I have also picked up some great Christmas washi tape from Amazon. I’ve since had so many ideas swimming around in my head of all the things I could do with this magic tape. I caught a miserable cold last week and got busy with work, so all that washi tape has been sitting on the craft table collecting dust. I was browsing some paper crafts on the new Bing Smart Search, and found the inspiration to make these fun Washi Tape Christmas Tree Cards. I am so happy with how they turned out!
I recently updated my PC from Windows 8 to 8.1 and have really been enjoying using the new Bing Search. It’s a super fast way to find what you’re looking for on your touch device. You don’t even have to open a browser. Just swipe from the side of your tablet or PC and start typing in the search bar. One search brings you information from across your device, the cloud, apps, and the web.
As a visual person, the large images are very appealing and help me to find what I need quickly. No more endless rows of blue links–save time and clicks with easy-to-read results.
One of my favorite Microsoft Bing Search features is the web previews which help you see at-a-glance what the web page looks like behind each search result. That means fewer clicks to find the right link. Plus, you can take action right from the search results. Launch apps, open files, call a friend, change settings, and more, all with a single click.
Washi Tape Christmas Tree Cards How-To
I am so happy to have found the inspiration to make my washi tape Christmas cards. If you are not familiar with washi tape, it’s inexpensive paper thin craft tape that can be used in a variety of ways. It’s readily available in local craft stores and online. These Christmas cards took me just minutes to make. I simply folded a piece of card stock paper in half, tore the washi tape into graduated pieces, and gently pressed the tape onto the card. I was thrilled to realize that I had some gold star tape in my stash, for the tops of the trees.
