The Christmas crafting is continuing at speed here and if you thought last week’s washi tape Christmas cards were a bit too taxing then this is definitely the craft for you – washi tape Christmas gift tags.
All you need are plain gift tags (any will do, but I happened to have a box of these lovely vintage style ones from East of India) and some festive washi tape. As an added extra you could also use any Christmas themed rubber stamps that you may have too.
You can obviously decorate the tags however you want with the washi tape, but I decided to keep it relatively simple with a band of it around the bottom of each tag – that way it left plenty of space to write who the gift was to.
I picked up some cute little Christmas stamps when I was in Tiger last week and played about with adding a stamp on each tag, but with small tags like the ones I was using it didn’t really seem necessary. If you were using bigger tags though with more space I think it would be a nice addition. Similarly festive stickers could also be used.
Whilst getting the washi tape accurately across the bottom does take a little bit of skill to line it up nicely with the bottom of the tag, the stamping is a great activity for a child to help with – although experience tells me that you might need to keep reminding them to leave some space for you to write!
I’ve spotted so much Christmas tape in shops this year (the latest being a bargain 8 rolls for a pound in Lidl this morning!) and I can never resist buying more – so look out for plenty more Christmas washi tape crafts between now and the big day!
