最近因為在準備婚禮與寄送喜帖給親朋好友,一口氣做了很多彩色的紙膠帶小旗 (不過現在還不能戳破驚喜,噓~),正好現在準備進入加州的夏天,是大家要開始享受後院 BBQ 趴踢與海灘趴踢的時光,讓我不禁立刻想到這個紙膠帶小旗 / 彩旗的手作分享應該很實用 : )

Recently I made lots of colorful Washi Mini Flags while we continue preparing our wedding and invitations (shhh, I can’t spoil the surprise yet).  Since it’s the time of the year we are getting ourselves busy with backyard BBQ gatherings and beach parties and it got me thinking… This DIY tutorial of washi tape flags & garlands will be quite useful for this season!

準備好了嗎?下面我會開始用圖文介紹如何做紙膠帶小旗和它的進化版-可愛彩旗哦!

Whether these flags are for cupcakes, finger snacks, mini baguette sandwiches or fruit like strawberries, they can turn any ordinary meal into a sophisticated one and people just can’t take their eyes off them “They are sooo cute!”

If you always have to throw parties such as birthday parties or home parties, this is definitely a trick of lifetime for you.  You can easily utilize various styles of washi tapes to decorate your little snacks into different themes.  All you have to do is to choose which washi tapes to use : )

Ready for a super cute and easy washi tape technique? Below I would demonstrate how to make washi tape flags (level 1) and washi tape garlands (level 2). Both are super easy.

1)  開始嘍!首先我們需要準備一些紙膠帶、牙籤和一把剪刀。

Here we go~ To start off we need to prepare washi tapes, toothpicks and a a pair of scissors.

2)  拿出一些牙籤,如果你的牙籤是雙頭都尖的話,把任一個尖端剪掉。

Take out some toothpicks and cut one of the pointy ends off.

 

3)  挑一卷紙膠帶,拉出約 5 公分 / 1.5 – 2 英吋的長度 (長度可以照自己喜好而定)

Pick a washi tape and cut a piece of 1.5-2 inches (5 cm) tape out (or your preference).

4)  挑一卷紙膠帶,拉出約 5 公分 / 1.5 – 2 英吋的長度 (長度可以照自己喜好而定)

Pick a washi tape and cut a piece of 1.5-2 inches (5 cm) tape out.

 

5) 把剪掉尖頭的那端放到剪好的紙膠帶中間 (是黏的那一面哦)

Place the blunt end of the toothpick at the center of the sticky side of the tape.

6) 小心的把膠帶兩頭往內折成一半,仔細對好四個角落再把它們黏在一塊兒,再小力壓平。

Carefully fold the tape in half, match up both edges and stick both sides of the tape together.

 

7) 最後用剪刀修剪出你想要的樣式。如果你想要做個長方形的小旗,就用剪刀把末端的部分修齊;另一種常見的方式是在小旗子的尾巴上剪出一個三角形,像個凹進去的三角形。

Use scissor to cut the end of the flag in any design of your choice.  If you want a clean rectangular flag, you could simply trim the edge of the flag.   Alternatively you could snip a small triangle out from the edge of the flag to make it even cuter!

8) 完成!

Ta-da.  All Done!

非常的簡單,對吧!做熟練之後,20秒不到就可以做完一支可愛小旗子哦,而且會忍不住想愈做愈多。

Super easy, right?  Once you get the drill, you could easily make one little washi flag within 20 seconds!  You won’t be able to stop making these cute little washi flags.

同樣的可愛紙膠帶小旗還可以有更多應用,不只能做在牙籤上哦。

如果做在更長如 20-25 cm 的竹籤上,就可以拿來裝飾大型的餐點像烤火雞;也能結合二根紙膠帶小旗 (唔,但長竹籤的話更像是大旗)來做生日或結婚蛋糕上的裝飾;有時候我甚至會拿來裝飾自己收集的奇異造型乾燥植物,再放在大大小小的透明罐子裡,就會讓每天的心情很美麗。

This cute little washi flag technique could be used on so many things too, not only toothpicks.

We can also create washi flags with longer (8-10 inches) bamboo skewers which can be used to decorate main course like roast turkey; or to use 2 of the bamboo skewers with washi flags to make cute cake toppers for birthday cakes or wedding cakes.  Sometimes I even use washi flags to decorate my collection of dry weird plants.

或是當家裡有舉辦趴踢時,我們可以當個貼心的主人,為了避免客人彼此拿到對方的杯子,提供一些做在吸管上的紙膠帶小旗,客人們認好自己的紙膠帶小旗就不容易拿錯杯子。甚至也可以一開始就提供一籃紙膠帶在飲料桌旁邊,讓客人自行挑選喜歡的款式來裝飾自己的吸管  : )

When having home parties, as a thoughtful host, why not provide some washi flag straws so guests wouldn’t never pick up the wrong drink from the others!  Or you can let your guests to pick their favorite pattern of washi tape and make their own personalized drink : )

同樣的紙膠帶小旗還有一種進化版,是做成可懸掛的可愛彩旗。

它們的做法一模一樣,只是目標物從比較硬挺的牙籤,變成易彎折的繩子,所以我通常比較喜歡麻繩勝過棉繩,因為硬度比較高,做的時候容易控制,不過這些都是看個人喜好而定~ 我下面照片裡所用的是繭裹子的手工麻線,因為很喜歡它們的顏色的自然質感。

Mini Washi Flags was level 1.  Now we are gonna level up to create cute Washi Flag Garlands!

The technique is exactly the same.  The only difference is that we replace toothpicks with twine.   I usually prefer hemp twine over cotton one because they are easier to control when making washi garlands, but it’s all preference.  Here I used hemp twine from Twine because I am a fan of their beautiful colors.

這次我做了二種不同感覺的紙膠帶彩旗,一種是直接運用與可愛小旗子相同寬幅的紙膠帶;另一種是找了比較寬的紙膠帶,做出來胖胖的也可愛極了。

I made 2 styles of washi flag garlands for demonstration by using washi tapes with different widths.  They are both super cute and easy to make.

不用擔心它們會很難做,這些紙膠帶彩旗不但非常容易,而且無論裝飾在哪裡都很好看。

可以把它們掛在房間的窗戶前,可以貼在牆上做裝飾,可以纏在透明的玻璃瓶上 (因為很漂亮!),聖誕節時也可以綴點聖誕樹,平常還可以拿來包裝禮物,而設計師出貨時如果客人需要特別包裝,也可以為他們繞上一條,就會變的很活潑可愛,非常實用。下面是我拿大王準備要出貨的訂單來示範一下 : )

Don’t worry if they’re hard to make.  These washi flag garlands are so easy to make and look fantastic everywhere.  You can hang them near a window  or on the wall.  You can use them to wrap glass jars (just for the beauty of it!) or decorate christmas trees.   They are also perfect for gift wrapping and for designers to fulfill their sold orders.

With a washi flag garland, your packgage is suddenly 200% cuter!

I used Wayne’s sold order to demonstrate how to use washi flag garland to wrap gifts.
