Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! This week we are featuring FALL GIFTS.
I went a little crazy and made a bunch of WASHI TAPE LEAVES which I used to embellish my gifts.
I just LOVE all the color in these gifts! A little washi tape can go a long way in adding color and fun to your projects.
Just add strips of washi to a piece of cardstock in any design you like. Then simply die cut a leaf or any other shape, easy peasy!!!
This first leaf was the perfect embellishment for my half size MINI TREAT BAG. I layered on a bit of gold cording then added the leaf with dimensionals. I also added in a sentiment by die cutting “grateful” from the Seasonal Frames Thinlets set. I used Blackberry Bliss cardstock, it stands out quite nicely from all of the colorful washi tape.
I could have stopped with the treat bag, it’s very cute on it’s own. But theses leaves are so easy to make, I just kept going! I ended up with three more leaves, all different shapes. As with the clips I shared earlier in the week, I simply added washi tape to the clothespin then adhered the leaves with dimensionals. There are TONS of great ways to use these clips! I was thinking you could make a nice little place setting with these for the holidays. Just add a sentiment or the person’s name and clip it to a fancy folded napkin. I’d love for you to share some ideas you have, just leave me a comment and I’ll try some out! Now, how about a quick list of supplies so you can give these gifts a try for yourself!
