Pretty packages

Hi LMT friends, it's Jaclyn here today.  In my family we have a number of birthdays during the month of October.  I have already purchased several gift cards, but I wanted a way to present them to my recipients other than just tucked inside a card.  Pillow boxes and washi tape came to the rescue!  These simple supplies made for quick and pretty packaging to house my gifts.

I started by laying three side by side strips of the chosen tape next to each other, around the width of the pillow box. I then layered two strips of lace tape around the middle for some added texture.  The rest is finished off in no time, with a quick wrap of coordinating twine and a gift tag that is tied on and secured!

This floral tape has always been one of my favorites.  I love how the lighter colors pop against the black background.  The black lace tape and twine add a nice bit of texture and compliment the pattern well.

The fabric tapes work well for this project too!  Here I've used the pink and white stripe fabric tape, as my base, layering on the lace tape and twine again.

With the holidays quickly approaching, I know we're all searching for quick and pretty ways to fancy up our gift giving.  What's great about this project is that it can easily be customized to the holiday or occasion, based upon the tapes you choose.  I hope you'll give it a try!
