How to Cut Washi Tape Perfectly & Easily Without Scissors!

Ever wonder how some people get their Washi perfectly lined up in a square or just cut so straight and not hanging out of the box or anything? I used to wonder too. Someone on the Facebook group-we love ec - asked this same question. And that's where I learned this clever trick!


All you will need is your Washi tape and your EC ruler! Or any plastic ruler or laminated edge. 

No scissors needed! Every time I use a scissor my tape ends up cutting diagonally!




Step 1: line up your Washi where you would like it


Step 2: place your ruler's edge to the line where you'd like to cut the Washi 

Step 3: hold your Washi close to the edge and pull upwards to rip it against the edge

Step 4: admire your perfectly straight cuts!

Hope that helps you out in decorating your pages quickly and easily!! 

Happy planning!

I used to do this in highschool for projects using masking tape. Makes me wonder why I didn't remember to do it this way until I read this post. Probably because I haven't been in highschool for 12 years and have forgotten how to use my brain. Haha. Thanks for reminding me!
