Vellum Tape Flowers by Lisa Swift
1. Start off with a punched cardstock circle. This one has a 1 1/2" base.
2. Adhere a 12" strip of vellum tape to a 12" piece of white cardstock (cut the cardstock to match the width of the tape before adhering or trim it afterwards). This will make for a sturdy material to work with. If you'd like something a bit more flexible, you could use white copy paper.
3. Cut 2" strips from the vellum tape. Roll each strip over a pencil (or other slim, round object) to soften the cardstock and make it easier to manipulate. Fold the 2" piece of tape in half, end to end. Adhere on the inside using Glue Dots or other strong adhesive.
4. Adhere these "petals" to the punched circle, layering as you go. Again, you can use Glue Dots because they help keep the petals flexible so you can play with the spacing between them.

Vellum Sketch Book by Heather Leopard
I created this journaling book, which I actually plan to use as my new sketch book. I started with a plain chipboard bound book. I really wanted to make my sketchbook unique so I enlisted my hubby's workshop skills and had him drill different sized holes into the cover. I then layered the vellum tape vertically over the cover, cutting around the holes. Once it was fully covered, I added accent strips in various sizes to give it a little more texture & dimension.
Then, I placed a white sheet of paper inside the front page of the book so that it would show through the front of the cover. I closed the cover and traced circles on the white sheet. This allowed me to see where to place the vellum tape so that it would show through the cover. I laid the vellum over the circles in horizontal and diagonal patterns and then adhered the white sheet to the inside front cover.
Lastly, I covered the pen in vellum tape and went about decorating the front page. I plan to do some art journaling/doodling to the rest of the front page as well.

Vellum Covered Acrylic Album by Jen Chesnick
Sometimes simple is best. For this album I chose to just accent the front acrylic piece with vellum tape. It might be the most simple album cover I have ever made. The phrase stickers are still an all time favorite of mine. The vellum is nice because sticks so well and will not curl up on the edges. It also doesn't show any glue on the backside, so using on acrylic where you will see the other side is perfect!
