So I realize I'm probably the very last person in the world to join the washi tape craze, but on a recent trip to the dollar store, I found some Christmas washi tape.  At a dollar apiece, I couldn't resist and got five rolls.  Have you ever used washi tape before?  It's like masking tape, but it has pretty patterns and it's great for dressing up plain items.  I used my washi tape to add some Christmas cheer to some plain old gift tags and gift bags.

It's easy to turn plain tags into gift tags with just a strip of washi tape!

I also added some washi tape to some plain gift bags to make them pretty.

To make the washi tape Christmas tree, just cut out a triangle from thick card stock or cardboard and apply the tape across the triangle.  Wrap the tape around the edges of the triangle (no one will see the back) and glue the triangle onto the bag.

  7. Oh another reason to just love washi tape! We’d love it if you’d shared this project at our Found & Foraged link up party. This Friday at 8PM Central Time…normally it’s Saturdays at 8PM but InLinkz is having some sort of maintenance server update during our normal party time. Anyhoo, we’d love to see you at http://houseofhipsters.com/

  9. Hi Bonnie, I see that you love washi tape as much as I do! Santa could just fill my stocking with that and I would be a happy girl. I especially like those simple, yet classic gift tags you made. Lovely to meet another paper loving person via "FlusterBuster" linkup
