I love the patterns on this Liberty print washi tape. I created a couple of easy gift wrapping ideas using a patchwork design and also a flower design created with my trusty scalpel. I hope they give you some inspiration for spring!
We had such a great day a few weekends ago at the #makewrapmingle afternoon we hosted with Zeena Shah. It was a crafting bonanza, with gift wrapping demonstrations from Geraldine from Little Big Bell, confetti crackers, secret envelope making and lots more! We also had lots of stunning hair braids and waves courtesy of Prettly.
I've loved washi tape since I first discovered it on American craft blogs in 2009, and loved being one of the first washi tape UK stockists. I found some gift wrapping ideas from the Papermash archives and thought it would be fun to re-share. The top images is one of my favourite washi tape ideas ever! I've always loved collecting old books and ephemera and I was pretty pleased with this image using a band of white watercolour paper. A few other ideas include adding washi tape bows and bunting to brown paper, and making a letter or number (you need a letter with straight lines!)
My stash of washi tape is pretty large, but instead of complicated wrapping, most of the time my favourite way to wrap a parcel still just uses a touch of plain black washi tape or classic neon pink. I’ve rounded up some of my favourite but very simple Christmas washi tape gift wrapping below. Which is your favourite?
