Over the weekend I shared a photo on Instagram of items I’m sending in a care package to a good friend. As I do with all the gifts I give, I wanted to created a special wrap for the gift.
I looked through my wrapping paper stash but didn’t see anything I wanted to use so out came the washi tape and in no time flat I had my box wrapped.
I’ve professed my love of washi tape on the blog before but I have to tell you again, it is one of the best crafting supplies you can own.
The beauty of washi tape is that it can be used in so many different ways and it’s perfect for gift wrapping. To keep things simple, I used the tape instead of ribbon and layered different patterns together to fancy up the box a bit.
I also made a cute gift tag accented with washi tape. I folded lengths of washi tape together to create flags and then angle cut the ends. Using double-sided tape, I attached the washi flags to the gift tap and finished it off with a silk flower.
