Washi tape is always a fun and colorful way to decorate a package, a card, or a bag. I love these cute washi tape gift bags from Craft and Creativity. Helena used washi tape to decorate these small plain kraft gift bags and then she used them as envelopes for cards. There are so many possible shapes and color combinations you can create for all different occasions. The gift box with the baker’s twine bow would be cute for Christmas or a birthday. I especially love turquoise and gold for Christmas, and I can picture a cute star shaped gift bag that would be adorable.
You could also try this same technique with kraft paper cardstock to make a beautiful handmade card. Or try using washi tape to decorate a plain gift bag or brown paper package.
