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?
