This summer I’m totally in love with neon. In America this isn’t a new trend, it’s alreay a little older, but in Germany this year was the year of neon. I think these colors are perfect for summerly decoration. So I used them within these tapes to create a summer garland for my craft space. I tried to make it as simple and fast as possible, because I’m really short on time at the moment. So here’s what I did:

The supplies: three types of tape – I used pink, orange and green neon washi tapes, white DINA4 paper, glue, a white ribbon, a set square und a pencil. That’s it.

1. At first you fold the paper lengthwise a little bit over the half. Then you take the little rest and fold it over again and glue it to the back of the folded paper. This way you get two closed sites. Turn the paper around, so the unglued side is up.

2. Then you draw triangles on the side without the little folded edge. With help of a set square you get triangles of the same size and width. I used the angle 75°, this way I got four triangles.

3. After you drew the lines, you can simply tape three washi tape stripes parallel to the long side of the paper. A little tip: If you tape the outer two washi tape stripes first, it’s easier to find the perfect middle position for the last tape.

4. The next step is to cut out the triangles. Repeat the steps 1.-4. at least two times so you get 12 triangles, better more often, so the garland will be longer. It depends on how long you want your final garland to be.

5. When you have enough triangles, you take the white ribbon, position it inside the triangles and then glue the triangles close. If you want to know, how this step works more closely, look over here.

And that’s it. The garland is finished and can immediately be used as decoration. Have fun creating your garland in your own style. It’s perfect for different tape combinations.
