Easy Washi Tape Gift Wrap

Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for the Canon T3! Go here to find out how!


As promised yesterday, I’m back to share the washi tape gift wrap that my son and I put together for the Colorful Crayon Frame. It’s soo easy.


Cross my heart.

Are you ready?

Before we start I have a confession: I have issues with paying for nice, thick, quality wrapping paper. I’m just way too frugal to spend money on something that will get ripped to shreds in a matter of seconds. I do, however, love the feel of the heavy brown packaging paper used for mailing. I picked up a huge roll at Target for $4 over a year ago and I’m still using it.

After wrapping the frame in the brown paper, I let Luke choose two patterns of washi tape from my stash. He then put the strips down to create shapes (flowers in this case). To finish of the wrapping, I gave him a Sharpie marker (with major supervision) to use for writing his name.

Luke was so proud that he had helped wrap his teacher’s gift that I think it was that much more special for him. The best part is that this idea doesn’t just apply to teacher’s gifts. You can use it for any occasion; just change the washi tape to match the celebration!

    I love it! And I’m with you on the wrapping paper. For Christmas I got a huge roll of white craft paper for gifts and jazzed them up with fun ribbons. Everyone thought they looked great and I didn’t have to spend a ton of money :)

      That is a great idea Trish! I’m still trying to use up all of the Christmas wrapping paper that I’ve bought on clearance in years past. It seemed like a great idea at the time… 😉
