Brizz washi tape ribbons: what are they and how to make the best of them
The Brizz washi tape are decorative ribbons which are becoming more and more famous in the world of DIY. The peculiarity of the Brizz washi tape is that of being able to prepare small pieces of tape and composing them as you like without sticking them until you find the perfect combination to create your perfect composition. The coloured strips of Brizz can then be embellished with pen, pastel or felt pen drawings done directly on the gift wrapping paper, so that the strips of ribbon can be transformed into many fancy decorations. But what can you do with the washi tapes? Discover it with our video tutorials!

For an even more cheerful effect, keep a good stock of many different ribbons and try the various combinations!
Tutorial # 1: Birthday Cake
After you have wrapped the packet with the gift paper you chose, select 3 ribbons with 3 different patterns and cut out 3 pieces of different lengths. The widest one is for the base of the cake and you gradually move upwards applying them to the smaller cake tiers. Then use a black or coloured marker to draw the cake stand, the laces of the various tiers, and the lit candles on the highest part!
Tutorial # 2: Candles
Wrap your gift with a white polka-dot on pastel-coloured paper: it’s not a solid colour paper but it still gives a great deal of homogeneity to the background. Now choose the ribbons in the colours you prefer and cut them to create the body of many coloured candles. Do not forget to use your pencil to draw the happy flames, which can be blown and blown without ever going out!
