DIY Holiday Washi Tape Mason Jar Gift Tags

Whether you made homemade preserves or pumpkin butter for the holidays or purchased it from your local farmer’s market like I did, you can easily dress up your mason jars with a simple diy washi tape gift tag making it perfect for last minute holiday gift giving.

DIY Washi Tape Mason Jar Gift Tag Labels for Last Minute Homemade Christmas Gifts

To create these gift tags you’ll need a full size white blank sticker label sheetWorld Label has these at a great price – permanent markers, and decorative Japanese washi tape. I used washi tape from Cute Tape (who I am hopelessly addicted to.)

Start with a fresh roll of washi tape and on the back side of the blank sticker sheet – the part you remove to reveal the sticky – trace around the outside of the washi tape roll with a marker. Then flip the sticker sheet over and apply strips of washi tape to the front of the sticker sheet covering where the circle is you marked on the back side. I matched up my strips of tape to create a pattern repeat but you can apply yours however you like.

Once you have covered the entire area where the circle was drawn on the back side, carefully cut out the circle using the circle you drew on the back as a guide.

Now create another circle for the center of the gift tag by using a marker to trace along the inside of a roll of washi tape, again drawing on the back side of the blank sticker sheet that will be peel away. Cut out along the lines, remove the backing and apply to the center of the large washi tape covered circle.

Using markers, draw a circle inside the the white center circle with a complimentary colored marker then use a fine point black marker to write your holiday message.

Finally, peel the backing from the gift tag and adhere to the top of the mason jar lid.

For this project I used the Pink & Gray Cherry Blossom Snow Flake Washi Tape, Colorful Striped Half Circle Washi Tape in Red, and the Corner Washi Tape in Blue.

DIY Washi Tape Wrapped Holiday Gifts

I also used washi tape on my Christmas gift packages this year in lieu of ribbon by simply wrapping strips of washi tape around the packages for a fresh, fun look against plain brown Kraft wrapping paper.

Cute, Quick and Simple DIY Washi Tape Holiday Gift Tags

Pressed for time wrapping those last minute handmade holiday gifts? Create these super cute and simple DIY gift tags and give your Christmas presents a beautiful handmade touch that looks anything but rushed using paper scraps and washi tape!

Cute and Simple Washi Tape Gift Tags

For this holiday gift tag I used an eco-friendly paper scrap left over from an Artterro craft kit – it was gray on one side and patterned on the other – and Pink Cherry Blossom Snowflake Japanese Washi Tape and Baby Blue Silver Corner Japanese Washi Tape both from Cute Tape.

I simply cut out a tag shape from the paper then covered one side completely with the cherry blossom washi tape. Then I cut out a rectangle from the same scrap paper and applied a white sticker from a sticker label sheet to the front and added a border and my gift recipient info with a fine point Sharpie marker. I then adhered this rectangle to the tag with two corners of tape cut out from the Blue Silver Corner washi tape. A small hole punch was used to attach the baker’s twine by looping it through the hole.

Handmade with Love Gift Tag DIY

As the back of my scrap paper was patterned I didn’t need to add washi tape to the back. However, if you are using a solid colored paper, you can add strips of the Blue Silver Corner washi tape to completely cover the back of your tag. I then cut out the words from a Handmade with Love sticker label and added this to the back of the tag.

The resulting tags would also be adorable later on after the gifts have been opened in a Christmas themed scrapbook that highlights your family’s holiday memories!

DIY Washi Tape Wrapping Paper for Small Gifts and Stocking Stuffers

You can also use washi tape to create custom wrapping paper for small gifts and stocking stuffers – like homemade soaps! This Striped Half Circle Washi Tape is perfect for winter birthdays as well as Christmas. Simply match up strips of washi tape along a sheet of blank paper.

Washi Tape Ornaments

For Christmas gifts give your wrapping paper a holiday look by drawing hooks onto each circle to create Christmas tree ornaments.

Wrapping those Christmas gifts at the last minute but don’t want them to look like they were rushed? Here are a few stylish and pretty diy gift wrap ideas that will keep you at home and away from the malls on Christmas Eve! Plus links to free printable gift tags and wrap!
DIY Last Minute Upcycled Tissue Box and Washi Tape Gift Tag
This first idea is my own. I keep seeing tutorials for diy upcycled cereal box and washi tape gift tags. The problem with that is the backs of the cereal boxes with are difficult to cover with washi tape. So I used a tissue box instead. (I certainly had plenty of empty ones with all the colds and sinus infections going around this year.)

Tissue boxes already have pretty designs (pictured above) so the back of the tag is already perfect! Just add washi tape to the front! Then simply add a strip of washi tape around some plain wrapping paper and tie the gift tag on with baker’s twine for simple but elegant gift wrap!
Here are just a few other fun, diy gift wrapping ideas from around the blogosphere.
