DIY Scotch® Brand Expressions Washi Tape Gift Wrap Decor

This post is in partnership with Scotch™ Brand and Post-it® Brand. Scotch™ Brand and Post-it ® Brand products work the first time, every time.

Every year one of our favourite traditions we like to do is think up a fresh new way to wrap gifts. Whether it's pretty papers or a new ribbon, wrapping gifts has always been a fun activity we look forward to. So this year inspired by all the washi tapes from Scotch® Brand Expressions Washi Tapes collection, we created gift wrap ideas using some of their patterned and glitter tapes. I wanted to create the look of holiday trees (although Earl thought they looked like mountains), but whatever they are, I like how they turned out. One in a blue ombre and the other in neon pink and gold tapes. We also made a video tape to show you how we made them. It's all pretty straight forward, and fairly simple to create. We also even sent a few off in the mail, and I liked the idea that they could be packed on top of each other - with no bows to worry about squishing. Let's take a look!

DIY Scotch® Brand  Expressions Washi Tape Gift Wrap Decor

You will need:
4 different Scotch® Brand Expressions Washi Tapes
1 roll kraft paper
Scotch® Brand Magic Tape™
If shipping — we used in the video:
1 box
1 roll Scotch® Brand Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape with Dispenser

To Make:
Wrap the gift using the kraft paper. To start to create a tree/mountain design, start with the small upside down "V" first. And then overlap slightly over each upside down "V", trimming the point at the top with a scissors to create a straight point. Continue overlapping a new colour of tape for each layer until desired design is obtained. We also made a few with just a few strips, and then left other packages plain, to create a varied collection. Check out the video below for a better look.
