How to create a Washi Tape in Illustrator

Washi Tape Illustrator tutorial

Today, I will walk you through the process of creating washi tape in Illustrator, with just a few easy steps. Although we make a plain washi tape, you can go ahead and apply pattern to these to make some cute ones! There are so many things you can create in Illustrator within just 5 mins! This is my first video in a new series that I’m planning to start. Short videos are my favorite things to watch and learn from and I want to make more such videos available to you in the near future.

Colors used in the Washi Tape in Illustrator:




  1. Create a rectangle and fill with color 233d4d
  2. Click on Effects > Stylize > outer glow and select the following settings:
  3. Create a smaller rectangle on top of rectangle in 1 and color it white
  4. Create another rectangle in the shape of a washi tape and color it f15d6a
  5. Use the pencil tool to create jagged edges for the tape
  6. Click on windows > transparency, and set it to 82%
  7. You are done!

Pin it for later!
