Do you like to make gifts? Every year I always start our holiday planning with some lofty goals. Actually, those usually start right after Christmas, when I start with my “Next year, I’m going to work on Christmas throughout the year so I don’t get overwhelmed” mantra.
Does it happen? So far, no. But I am not dissuaded from making those grand statements each year. I did buy things throughout the year last year, so Christmas was mostly done before we were even thinking about it. That happened because I realized there was no way I was going to be able to squeeze in any sewing or crafting that year.
This year, I have very few items already purchased, but I still have a plethora of crafting materials like fabric, beads, and such. So this year, there will be handmade gifts. Yay!
DIY Washi Tape Gift Bags
When I was perusing through all my crafting supplies, I came upon a set of kraft bags that I had picked up sometime somewhere for something. I decided to see what I could do with them. Add in my need to justify all my washi purchases, ahem, and you have another simple craft.
My process for all of these washi tape projects is pretty similar. I either start with a washi tape or two that I want to use and then find coordinating washi and/or stickers to go with it. Or I will start with the stickers and pull washi tape that coordinates with the colors in the stickers. Fairly simple process, but so much fun!
If you make some of your own, be sure to let me know! I’d love to see them.
