washi tape {for you}


congratulations to winning comment #4! jennifer!
email me to claim your prize!

{like always} i am loving washi tape right now.
i've got plans for pretty packaging for the holidays, how about you?
of course, washi tape will be involved.
here are a few fun ideas:
one :: two :: three :: four

lots of options for making fun gift tags.
i think doing a few diagonal stripes in coordinating colors would be cute.
or how about little flags? stick 'em in drinks, cupcakes or party favors!
washi tape covered clothespins would be adorable on packages.
or even attaching christmas cards to a ribbon garland! {that's how i display my cards!}
using tape for gifts is my fave. i really love it on craft paper and boxes.
how do you use washi tape?

  9. Fun! I will used it to wrap some of my soaps!

  10. I like to wrap all my gifts in coordinating paper, then with ribbon and a little knick knack attached- like a salt dough ornament!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love using plain brown paper, and then twine or tape in pretty colors. Last year I sewed zig zag stripes down the paper in various colors. I loved the way it turned out!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I use paper grocery bags and either draw on them or just tie them up with pretty ribbon or rafia. It's a great way to reuse and it looks great!

  13. Ok, I am *terrible* at wrapping gifts, so I usually dump them in a bag with tissue. Occasionally I'll wrap things in tinfoil (try it - kinda fun to wrap present with) but this Christmas I'm determined to wrap things cutely. I got some kraft paper at the dollar store, and am going to buy some twine!

  14. favorite way to wrap presents:
    in small boxes with ribbons and cute tags (especially ones that look like old apothecary jar labels)

    or

    brown paper packages tied up with string. partly because of Julie Andrews, partly because it is romantic.

    and i love the little tape flags.

  15. I've learned to use white wrapping paper (it's gender neutral). I can stamp it, use ribbon or anything else I desire and make it personal for whomever I'm giving it to. I've never thought to use Washi tape. So excited to try this idea! :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. i love your passion for washi tape. it's actually inspired me to seek some out, but do they even have it at joann's? i don't think so!!

    this year i am following pinterest, and wrapping in newspaper with red and white twine. which i guess i'll have to buy since i didn't win the last giveaway ;)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I have to admit that I am not at all crafty and have never used wash tape. I don't even know what to do with it, but I love your ideas!!! I hope you are having a good week, friend.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Right now my favorite way to wrap them is by putting them in bags because it's so easy. But washi tape looks simple and gorgeous as well!

  30. we make our own wrapping paper...so I buy stock in white and brown rolls of paper. This year I'm dipping the kids feet in red and green paint and letting them run across a roll of paper!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I've never tried this stuff before! I would love to give it a whirl:) Thanks for your giving heart!

    ReplyDelete
  32. i have been drooling over washi tape for ages, and i love that it's now so widely available (as in i don't have to shell out a fortune to ship from japan). i have big plans for this stuff--i'll tape my calendar/kid artwork/scraps/photos/notes directly to the wall above my desk, plus line the hallway with photos. and i ADORE your ideas of flags and holiday card garlands--perfecto!

    how do i wrap gifts? usually some sort of re-purposed paper (magazine, book pages, brown grocer bags) tied up with baker's twine.

    have a gorgey day, my girl!

    ReplyDelete
  33. i'm lazy!
    i use paper bags and then spruce them up with embellishments.
    when i do wrap i use postal wrap paper and put on embellishments.

  34. I love wrapping presents! It's like therapy to me! My first job was as a cashier/gift wrapper in a fancy little home decor store, and I LOVED IT. I had the best wrapping paper and ribbon and I got to beautify all these gifts for people. It was the best!

    ReplyDelete
  35. i love to wrap with brown paper and yarn. :) simple and cute.

    ReplyDelete
  36. we use anything we can find ;-) this would be a fun gift to have.
    hope you are having a great week hannah!

    ReplyDelete

  39. Wow! I never knew about this shop! I love washi tape too! :) Thanks for the chance to win! I usually try to be creative with wrapping; brown lunch bag type paper and then I decorate it, or let my kids draw on it, or even paint it. Something out of the ordinary always makes me smile! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I really need this, too! Thanks to you and cute tape for the giveaway!

    I would like to use the washi tape to make the Christmas card garland to hang the cards with! That looks super cute and I'm dying to get my hands on some washi tape.

    I hope I win!

  43. I love traditional wrapping paper. It is so much fun to unwrap that it is a must!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I need some of this tape so bad! My favorite way to wrap a gift is in brown butcher paper with yarn for a ribbon and a handmade gift tag. I never buy cards, such a waste of cash, so the gift tag adds a little bling to the gift.

    ReplyDelete
  45. yes! please!!!

    i'm so original. i use what i have. paper, boxes, re-gifted gift bags...what-ever :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I have been wanting washi tape for months but never seem to put it high enough on my want list so please pick me! And my favorite way to wrap gifts is always with a box and the cute wrapping paper!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I follow them on Twitter now! Thanks Hannah for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  50. I use paper and bags. My first job as a teenager was a "wrapping girl." I made so many bows I got muscles. I love this tape. :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Mmm.... I'm such a wrapping paper snob. Wrapping paper from the cobtainer store is my fav. After Christmas, 50% off. That's my favorite way to wrap a gift!

  55. Best giveaway!!
    I like to keep it somewhat simple. I love using plain brown paper and using twine, string, bakers twine. This tape would give a bit more pizazzz!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm a friend of Aubry's who followed her fb link to your blog. I have never used this very cute tape before but I doubt that I would have a hard time finding a few cute things to do with it. Although...it would make a cute Christmas gift for Aubry.

  57. isn't this tape dreamy (did i just say tape was "dreamy"?!? it is.)

    i prefer to wrap gifts in boxes because i personally prefer the whole ripping the package open.

    ReplyDelete
