DIY Last Minute Upcycled Tissue Box and Washi Tape Gift Tag

Easy DIY Christmas Gift Wrap Ideas

This first Christmas gift wrap 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.)

DIY Handmade Gift Tags - Upcycled Tissue Box and Washi Tape Gift Tags

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 Christmas gift wrap ideas from around the blogosphere.
