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.

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!
