A nice gift wrapping can really take your holiday gifts to a whole new level! Besides simply using nice gift wrapping paper, adding your own decorations will make your gifts more personal and memorable. This is where washi tape comes in: you finally have a reason to use those beautiful washi tapes! For the holidays, we have 5 washi tape decoration ideas for you to personalize your holiday gifts! Here’s how.
1. Criss-cross like ribbon wraps
Instead of googling how to wrap a pretty ribbon bow, you can easily create a ribbon effect with washi tapes. Just criss-cross in the center, or at the ⅔ of the package with a festive washi tape.
Use wide washi tapes to achieve that ribbon effect. Fancy ones with lots of details will make it really festive!
Tip: After you’re done with washi tape, tie a ribbon with kraft twine to make it extra special.
2. Make DIY gift tags
Use washi tape to spell out a name or a holiday message on gift tags. For this decoration, they will be used in shorter sections, so choose simpler patterns like stripes, polka dots or repeating patterns so the pretty details don’t get cut off.
However, if there’s a special tape that says something about the recipient, then use it!
For the BFF and best buds!
3. Make bauble gift tags
Stick washi tape in tight rows on a cardboard, and cut into round baubles, or any other shape—stars, holly leaves, snowman—and turn them into gift tags, stick them on the packaging on decorations, or tie them on the gift with twine so they can be used for Christmas tree decorations as well.
Design, decorate with tape, and cut into reindeers and bunny rabbits!
By taping rows and rows of Christmas washi tapes to a large area, this is a very rewarding way for you washi tape lovers to show off every inch of your collection!
4. Create Christmas Trees
5. Decorate Wrapping Paper with Illustrations
Design your own wrapping paper with cute illustrated washi tapes! Choose tapes with individual designs and solid or transparent backgrounds, and stick them on wrapping paper with matching colors. Put a few trees on the lower right corner of the gift. This will make understated gift packaging that’s nicely framed like a Christmas card.
