I was contacted by F&W Media to participate in a fun little Handmade Christmas blog hop featuring projects from several holiday books they have out right now: Washi Tape Christmas, Crochet your Christmas, Handmade Scandinavian Christmas, and Kids Make Christmas. I chose to review Washi Tape Christmas by Kami Bigler and received a free e-copy to browse.

I pulled out my holiday tape that has been sitting in my box for nearly a year and made a few cards! again, really simple, but a fun way to use my overabundance of tape. I'm not generally a card maker.
I also pulled out some non-traditional colors like the black with red to mix it up a bit. I love how quickly these little cards came together.
Finally, I made one decorative washi ball. These are fragile and easily smashed, but my youngest daughter loves this. I see more of these in the future. To make this project easier with kids, scrapbook paper could be used rather than adding the washi tape as embellishment. Either way would be so cute. My finished project was a bit on the larger side. I will use shorter strips next time.
Washi Tape Christmas has some very fun ideas to use that stash of tape! Check out the other cute ideas from all four books on the blog hop this month! Head over to F&W's blog for the full list. Thanks for stopping by today!
Disclosure: I received a free copy of Washi Tape Christmas for this review.
