washi tape gift boxes











I found these neat "picture frame" boxes at Hobby Lobby for .99 each. You can probably also find them at Michael's and Joann. They were available in a few different shapes but I liked the rectangles the best. I thought these might be a fun way to show off a bit of pretty washi tape and they're perfect for small gifts like jewelry. I used these as gift boxes for the friendship bracelets I mailed out for the swap I participated in. It's pretty self explanatory, but I basically arranged several strips of tape on the flat cardboard piece, flipped it over to trim the excess tape, placed the piece tape side up in the lid, and voila! Fun stuff. Oh, and those awesome mini spools of washi tape came from this shop!

  2. Thank you! Glad you like it :)

    For the photos. . . most important thing is probably using natural light vs flash. I set up a few white poster boards by a window (actually have a post in the works on my set up). I use a lens with a wide aperture that lets a lot of light in. Finally, I use Photoshop Elements to brighten (levels) and sharpen (unsharp mask) my photos. There's a good tutorial on using levels in PSE here!

  9. Those are very cute! This would be a good way to use up some fabric scraps, too, instead of the tape.

  12. That's a great way to make sure that your craft items are stored in a nice way. Better to get everything packed properly then moving them all into the same storage space for easy reference!
