Washi Tape Gift Tags

Washi Tape has become my newest obsession!  I love this stuff!  There are so many fun things to do with it.  I even have a “washi tape” board on my Pintrest site.  Because I am the queen of making things more difficult than they need to be when I’m a mother of young children, I decided it would be fun to make my own gift tags this year.

Don’t get me wrong they have been so fun to make, but it has usually been about 9:30 at night when I sit down to make them!  They are cute, though, right?

Materials:

Gift Tags (either bought or cut on the Cricut – I cut mine using the Art Philosophy Cartridge)

Christmas Washi Tape

Red and White Baker’s Twine

Scissors

Washi Tape

I bought this Christmas Washi Tape from Pick Your Plum on a whim!  They had a deal on Thanksgiving Day so how could I resist.  My favorites were the “Merry Christmas” and “Green & White Chevron ones”!

I just jumped in and got creative with the tape.  Here are a few examples.

Here’s how they look on the gifts.  On my wrapped gifts I opted for these cute tags rather than adding bows (that always fall off anyway).  I hope people enjoy them!  I may have found my new thing.  I see having a big stack of these tags on hand to use all throughout the year.

 

The 12 Days of Christmas – Student to Teacher December 20, 2013

We celebrated Will’s kindergarten teacher, Mrs. T., with 12 gifts for Christmas.  It was so much fun to bring something each day.  I think his teacher enjoyed seeing what she was going to get each day, too!

I found this fun idea from “A Bushel and a Peck”.  Please visit this blog to see how she put the gifts together.  You can also get a free printable of the labels to attach to each gift.

Clipboard Collage

1st Day:  Clipboard

“For the 1st day Christmas,
something for you to use,
I’m giving you this clipboard,
so your papers you won’t lose!”

This is the day I went all out for.  I bought a small clipboard and added some magic to it with some craft paint, ribbon and washi tape.  It was quick and turned out pretty cute.

2nd Day:  2 Red Sharpies

2nd Day of Christmas

3rd Day:  3 binder clips

So, I forgot to take a picture of the 12th Day’s gift — oops!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
