So super dupe easy.  As I mentioned in my DIY Stitched Heart Valentine Tags, I made these tags with kraft paper.  All that was left to do was add a strip of lovey-dovey washi tape {wink}.  Voila!

Here I only did the lid of the box; however, you can see a tutorial on covering the entire paper mache box here.  Washi tape adds the perfect compliment to these boxes and yet another fantastic way to gift a treat or special present for those you adore.

Last week I shared vintage inspired covered matchboxes with you.  Today, here’s a spin using the fabulous washi tape.

A simple matchbox and some washi tape make quite the transformation.  The key to using the washi tape is to be sure that you cover the matchbox with white paper first.  This colorful little box is sure to put a smile on anyones face. It’s perfectly pleasant… and makes you wonder what’s inside. {wink}  For the kiddos, this allows for perfect portion control on the candy {woot-woot}.

So, there you have a few sweet washi tape crafts for you to have some fun with — maybe even for Valentines Day.  So, tell me, what washi tape projects have you done?

 I’ll be partying {here and here}.

    I am trying to start crafting and I purchased some Washi tape through an online special not sure how I would use it. These are really cute ideas, but I do have a question. Does the tape wrap around to the back on these projects, or is it just on the front? Do you cut the tape to make an even edge on the front? Thanks for any input!
