Washi Tape Box DIY

I’ve been a huge fan of washi tape for a while and love using it to make permanent designs. Since it’s intended to be removable, using a little decoupage glue over top of the finished design helps the tape to stay stuck. With this method you can whip up some colorful boxes to use as gift packaging that can be repurposed to hold whatever the lucky recipient chooses!

 Materials: unfinished wooden box, matte decoupage glue, craft paint, washi tape in various colors, craft knife, and paintbrushes

Step 1: Paint the box a base color.
Step 2: Add the washi tape to the box in a confetti pattern by using the craft knife to cut the tape into little triangles, dashes, and other shapes.
Step 3: Steal the box with a layer of decoupage glue.

    This is adorable. Although, I’m not sure I’d want to give it away after spending so much time making it! How long did it take to cut up the tape?

    I love this idea. It would make a great box for any Mother’s Day gift. You could create homemade bath bombs, cookies, scrub, etc. for mom and give it to her in one of these cute boxes.
