Washi Tape Gift Wrapping

Hi everyone!

There is still time to enter my huge giveaway to celebrate the introduction of my new shop WashiTapesNL! :-)

Christmas is quickly approaching, and I've started wrapping presents. I'm using white wrapping paper (actually, it's the back of a wrapping paper I don't like... ;-)) and washi tape. This is so quick and easy to do, and yet the result is absolutely wonderful!

Change the way you apply the tape for different looks. For the smallest package, I've also made a washi tape bow. Super cute! :-)

These three washi tapes are now available as a special Christmas Set for 20% off in my shop WashiTapesNL.

Have you started wrapping Christmas presents already?

I wish you a wonderful day! :-)

Stamped Notebook with Washi Tape


Please check out my huge giveaway below to celebrate the introduction of my new shop WashiTapesNL! :-)

Today, I'm sharing this kraft notebook that I made for my mom. It's super easy to make and the result is wonderful!

How to make it
Stamp the Old Letter Writing in white ink on the outside of the notebook. Love the look of white stamping on kraft! Then, tape the Purple Starburst Washi Tape diagonally and wrap the edges around. You can hide the washi tape ends by covering the inside with card stock. Your notebook is now ready to be given to someone special!

Thank you so much for visiting! :-)

Have a lovely day,
