Ways With Washi #7

Greetings, DeNami Friends! It's Emily here today with my July edition of Ways With Washi. Today I'm exploring another practical side of washi tape:  I love using it to tape down gift cards and cash in birthday cards and gift enclosures! Not only does the washi tape add a cute pop of color, it keeps those small gift cards (and not to mention easily misplaced cash!) in place when you enclose them in a card. Plus, most washi tape is easily removed, so it won't damage the cash or card.

I've created a few samples to give you a better idea of what I mean. To get us started, I made a fun birthday card with an interior sentiment on the right-hand panel. That blank interior panel on the left is the perfect place to tape in a $20 bill as a birthday gift with some punchy Pink Chevron washi tape from DeNami.


Now how about an easy way to say thank you? Giving a gift card along with a handmade card is one of my favorite ways to do so. I can easily keep the gift card secure by taping it next to a "thank you" sentiment inside the card with some washi tape, like this fun Blue Stripes washi tape from DeNami. See? Simple! But it has loads of impact.

For my last project for today, I wanted to show you how easy it is to make your own gift card holder from a glassine bag with the help of some washi tape.

You can decorate the exterior of the glassine bag however you'd like. I did a bit of background stamping directly on the glassine bag with white StazOn ink and kept my focal point on the smaller side so you can catch a tantalizing glimpse of what's inside!


Then I simply cut a cardstock tag and taped on a colorful gift card with some equally colorful Purple/White Dots washi tape from DeNami. I even used some washi tape to create a pull tab to help slide out the gift! Simple and quick.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope you picked up an idea or two for washi tape that you can use in your own papercrafting :). And be sure to drop my blog, My Little Slice of Bliss, for the chance to win a roll of washi tape of your very own!

See you back here next month for some more Ways With Washi!
