Now that Stampin’ Up! sells washi tape, we will find lots of ways to use it. You can easily decorate a Kraft Gift Box with strips of our new Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape. It’s even repositionable, so I was able to lift one part up and put one strip underneath on the top of the box. You could also wrap the tape around the sides of the box or add matching designer paper.
The birthday tag is made by just snipping off the top corners of a scrap of Whisper White card stock. I added some strips of Gingham Garden Washi Tape to the bottom of the tag. Since you usually just tear washi tape, I let the lengths be longer than the tag by just a bit and then trimmed off the excess with my Paper Snips on each side. Washi tape is translucent so keep that in mind when you are deciding on what colors of paper to use. The surface you stick the tape to will show through somewhat.
To decorate the hole of the tag, I just punched a small scallop with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch, adhered it to the tag, and then used a regular hole punch to punch the hole for the tag. To tie on the tag, I used the Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. You could hand write your greeting or your “To” and “From” on the tag or stamp something, or both! I stamped a birthday greeting from Bring on the Cake in Island Indigo, one of the coordinating colors of the Gingham Garden Washi Tape.
