Guess What I Made It Out Of!!!

 I'm officially jumping on the washi tape bandwagon! 

I recently saw this post from Kelly at Live, Laugh, Rowe where she covered paper mache boxes with washi tape to make cute little gift boxes. I pinned the post, knowing that I wanted to borrow the idea. 

Being the cheap thirfty crafter that I am, I came up to an alternative to the paper mache boxes that sell at Michael's for $1. 

I bought these file folders at the dollar store. Than I came home and cut box shapes out of them with my Silhouette machine, and made them into boxes. 

Than I used washi tape to cover my boxes and make them pretty! 

These cute little boxes are perfect for little gifts. All I'd have to do is stick a bow on top (maybe even one of my scrap paper bows) and I have the cutest, easiest gift wrap! 

 The best part is that you'd never guess that these boxes were made out of dollar store file folders! 

(I mean, if I hadn't told you.) 

Have you made anything using waship tape?

  1. I LOVE these too - and I'm super-impressed you got the green stripes to look pretty and lined up. I've tried to do something like that with chevron pattern paper and just couldn't make it happen... I never got close to the gorgeousness you have! But I love it! : )

  2. I really need to get on this Washi Tape band wagon but I haven't come across it here. That's amazing that you actually made your own boxes! Thanks so much for sharing at Etcetorize~

  3. They turned out great! I love the stripes one!

  4. Adorable! They really turned out great and I'm so impressed with how you made the little boxes. Wonder if I could make some boxes with my Cricut... hmm? I too finally broke down and last week bought some washi tape. Can't wait to tackle a few projects I have pinned. Stopped by from Think Pink Sundays (Flamingo Toes). AJ@queenofmynest
