Washi Tape Week - Day 2 October 08 2013
Day 2 in Washi Tape Week! Today's idea is all about taking a simple brown bag and jazzing it up a bit with some colorful washi tape. Again, this is a fairly simple and quick project, one that kids can help with as well. All you'll need is brown paper bags, washi tape and scissors. This project works well on a hard surface, for example a table or hard floor.
It works best to have the tape go over the edge a bit and trim the extra tape off, when placing the tape on the bag. That way you get a nice straight edge on the tape without cutting the tape too short. I like to place the tape in all different directions. Use all the same pattern or mix up the colors and patterns.
I love this idea for any type of gift bag, party bag, treat bag, or even to make fancy bags for kid's lunches. It's easy, quick and fairly inexpensive! Give it a try the next time you wrap a gift or make party bags for a party you are hosting.
