Washi Tape Christmas Extravanganza

I get to have two Christmases each year- an English one with Paul and friends in England, and then an American one in the States with my family. I love for all my gifts to be wrapped in a cohesive theme but this inevitably leads to me flying from country to country with wrapping paper, which seems unnecessary. Enter Washi tape! I’ve become a bit obsessed with this stuff as it can doll up anything in a very clean and precise way. And what a perfect way to do simple, concise, xmas wrapping that will look the same on both sides of the Atlantic with minimal luggage space. All I bought was Washi tape, brown paper from the post office, and a lovely decorative red handmade paper from Paperchase. Below are the results.

Some were in a Christmas wrapping set, and were actually not very sticky or the right texture. The best ones were sold in their craft section at their larger stores.
