HI peeps
our month long challenge #4 anything goes with washi and stamps is going on... its easy and fun filled challenge....
and now
we warmly welcome our first guest dt for kraftzone challenges... CHARU ...

Hello every one
This is Charu Joshi from Crafted Creations , first of all I would like to thank team Kraft Zone for selecting my projects as toppers for two consecutive months and a special thanks to Nupur for giving me this opportunity to share a post here as a guest..
The theme for this month is Use Washi Tapes and Stamp..
When we think of washi tapes, lots of vibrant colors, designs and patterns come in our mind.. They are so decorative themselves that we just stick them on something and the looks transforms in a  better finished and better looking project..
There are various ways of using Washi Tapes in your projects..
I made this CAS card using  washi tapes..

There are a numerous ways of using washi tapes.. will discuss few over here

Use washi tapes on border for any project...
Also you can stick washi at the border and then punch it to give a different look

 Stick washi on ribbon half way , like this

and then fold it to give beautiful pleats... like this
Stick the washi in the centre of a long strip of cardstock to create a beautiful rosett..  A different rose flower made by scoring at equal distance..

Another project that I am here to share with you all is ..... something that I literally picked from the bin to keep it again on my table...
My husband is a doctor, and he had this prescription paper dispenser on his table. It was sponsored by a pharmaceutical company, so when the paper in it got finished, he threw it in the bin...  At the same time when ever I had to jot down a list (may it be a grocery list or a things to do list) I used to run around for paper..
So I thought I will probably give it a new life, and use it on my table...
And I started working on it... 

Painted it with White acrylic paint

Added beautiful n vibrant washi tapes

Then decorated with Prima flowers, butterfly and other embellishments..

Cut few plain white A-4 sheets into small square paper pieces to fit on top.. 

And tadaaa....  here's the finished product... 
My very own paper dispenser for my lists and jot down points  is ready.....  

I hope you liked my projects and discussions in this post, and it inspires you to make your own projects
 to participate in this month's challenge and win goodies for yourself..
Happy crafting !!!
