Making gifts for friends and family during the holidays can be affordable, and it's a fun way to give them something handmade with love. I crafted these 2 suuuuper easy DIY Christmas gift projects using the versatile Scotch® Expressions Tapes and Scotch® Create Double Sided Tape I found at Walmart in the 'Paper Crafting' aisle.
The first craft is the Washi Bow Treat Bag where I use the washi tape to create a bow for an adorable treat bag! The second craft is a Christmas tree in a frame made out of washi tape. Below are the tutorials, enjoy! :)
1// Cut 3 pieces at the above lengths
Large: 16 inches
Medium: 8 inches
Small: 1 inch
2// Fold the Large and Medium pieces in half, so no sticky is showing.
3// Fold again. Cut a notch in the Large and Medium pieces to make the center (where the fold is), narrower than the ends of the pieces.
4// Cut a "V" shape at the end of the Medium piece.
5// Open up the Large piece, and dab a hot glue gun dot in the middle. Create the "bow loop" portion by taking each end and attaching it to the adhesive.
6// Open up the Medium piece and hot glue it to the back of the Large piece.
7// Then hot glue the Small piece around the center to secure the entire bow together.
8// Glue bow to wooden clothespin.
9// Fill bag with candy, fold doily over top and secure with clothespin.
10// Now gift to your neighbor or friend!
1// Cut plain white scrapbook paper to the size of your frame, this is what you'll use to create your Christmas tree.
2// Select Scotch® Expressions Tapes for your washi tape Christmas tree. Cut at a diagonal angle and create the bones of your tree!
3// Pull up bottom piece and attach a tree trunk.
4// Place pieces of washi tape on scrap paper and use a star hole punch to punch out your tree topper. Repeat method for ornaments, holiday bells, snowflakes, etc.
5// To attach the star tree-topper use Scotch® Create Double Sided Tape.
6// Put the tree into your frame, and gift to a friend or display it in your home!
I picked up both of my Scotch® Brand goodies in the 'Paper Crafting' aisle at Walmart while I was grocery shopping, how easy! What holiday gifts will you make this season using Scotch® Expressions tape?
