Hello again,

This week Anna Lee Company have been getting crafty with Japanese washi tape and it got me to thinking…

Who knew masking tape could be so versatile?!

Today Anna Lee Company are sharing their fantastic DIY washi tape favour boxes ~ they're easy as pie to make, just how I like my DIYs.

DIY Washi Tape Favour Boxes by Anna Lee Company

We created handles on guest favor boxes. These cute boxes came from Paper Source but any small box would work for these. To make the handle, tear a piece of tape, making it about 3 inches longer than you want the actual handle to be. Tear a second piece of tape, making it shorter than the first (closer to the actual desired length of the handle) and center on the first piece of tape. You will now have a strip with about an inch and a half of exposed sticky tape on either end. Cut these ends on the diagonal and attach to your favor box.

These would look so great on hooks or hanging from trees for your guests to take.

I think they'd also make wonderful confetti cone holders hung over the backs of chairs too.

Check out Anna Lee Company's blog for lots more washi tape crafty goodness! They also created a washi tape mini flag garland and washi tape cupcake flags / drinks stirrers.
