Day 10 of the #12daysofholidaygiftwrap…

Hi friends!  We’re getting close now!  Only a couple of days left to the big day!  Do you still have a couple of things to get wrapped up?  Creativity drying up?  And do you own any washi tape??  Well, you’ve come to the right place!

I will admit it.  I have a weakness for the washi.  It hardly even has to justify it’s existence for me to want to own it.  Well, after this, it needs to justify itself no more!  What a perfect use for pretty, thin paper, tape!

I went through my stash and pulled out several different combinations of patterns and colors.  My first thought was to pick one color/pattern combo and wrap them all the same, but I couldn’t pick just one!  So each box got a different combo!

Then, remember these from last summer?

Another useful-to-have-on-hand stash item!  I pulled out a couple of sheets of these layered embellishments (available in the LiitD store) and selected one to coordinate with each washi wrapped box.

And then some labels.  I also have a stash of these old sheets of labels that I will never get rid of.  Probably also, never use up completely, because I’m actually hoarding them.  But for today’s project, I gave some up.  I layered each embellishment on top of a label sticker and it added just the right amount of oomph to the layered clusters of punched paper shapes and bits.  At that, I decided it was enough.  The point was a quick and pretty way to cross another task off the to-do list.

You can see how randomly the washi tapes are combined, and yet how pretty they are when you put them together!  I bet you have a few rolls around too!  Pull them out, and put them to work like this and I bet you’ll gain a new appreciation for them!

Thanks for stopping by today!  You know the drill.  Check back again tomorrow.  I’ll be posting both Days 11 and 12 of the #12daysofholidaygiftwrap!
