A Holiday Craft: Washi Tape Gift Tags

Christmas is coming! Can I just tell you? I am having a blast making holiday crafts. And sure enough, before I end one project, I’m adding a few more to the list.

Holiday crafting is happening at a rapid rate over here! Here is a quick and easy one that I whipped up last minute to put on some gifts for my husband’s Christmas care packages.

If you are in the wrapping mood, check out these washi tape gift tags!

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to WIN ten rolls of washi tape from Downtown Tape. *squeal* When I got my washi tape in the mail I was surprised with some great tags too. Just perfect for gift tags, right?

To decorate my gift tags for Christmas, I just started taping my washi tape to the tags in different patterns (I love the diagonal one the best). Then, I practiced my cursive (haven’t done that since elementary school) and wrote “Cheer” and “Merry” on a couple of them. The last step was to tie a little bit of twine and TA DA, washi tape gift tags!

Cute right? I happen to love them! And they are homemade! What can be better? They’re perfect for everyone from family to neighbor gifts!

Have a great week, friends. Happy Holiday crafting!
