I hope you guys are well.
Here’s an idea to spruce up any plain boxes you may have around (in my case: a cardboard red box that stores my bracelets) or even gift boxes for upcoming Christmas presents. You can use washi tape. They come in many designs and can be easily removed so if you make a mistake or get tired of the design, just peel it off and reposition or pick another design.
I chose a script writing washi tape that I found at A.C. Moore on sale. These little tapes can be expensive so when they go on sale get as many as you can. If you’re a crafter, you won’t regret the purchase. I just covered the top of the box and lined up the tape so it would look like a continuous design.
I wanted to see the finished box with a gift bow so I took out my scrapbook paper, which I also got on sale at AC Moore (buy, buy, buy) and my bow template courtesy of http://howaboutorange.blogspot.com/2013/04/how-to-make-paper-bow.html.
I love my cardboard red box now more than ever and if I was gifting this box, I would add the paper bow.
I decorated my kids play doh accessories box with the Super Mario (brand DUCK TAPE) design (found it at AC Moore, not on sale 😦 ). I found the birthday duct tape and glitter tape at the dollar section in Target. Yup, $1 . Score! The other washi tapes that I have are silhouette birds on a wire and cloudy sky with red hearts. I have a strong feeling this tape collection is going to be growing. I’m gonna need a big storage box, STAT!
Take good care all.
Until next time…
What a great idea. I loved the bow. I can’t wait to try it.
