With only two simple elements of kokeshi dolls and washi tape, this craft project will be just perfect for this Mother’s Day. And with just a little pen detail, you can make these cards in no time. You can use the kokeshi illustrations for gift tags, bookmarks, and more.
- Washi tape
- Parchment paper
- Ink pens
*Tip – Washi tape is easier to cut when it’s on parchment paper.
1. Place a four-inch strip of tape on parchment paper
2. With scissors, round the top edge of the tape.
3. Cut out a small groove for the neckline.
4. Place tape on the front of the card. With a marker, draw a head. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect. You can fix it when you add the hair.
5.Draw the eyes and kimono detail with ink pens. For the lips and cheeks, use a marker. And to finish it off, place a tiny piece of washi tape in the center of the kimono as an obi.
