Hi Everyone! Christine (listgirl) here sharing a tip and printable download for you today!

Washi and patterned tape seem to be all the rage these days, but sometimes it’s hard to find the tape in local stores – or it’s only available in a pricey big roll.  However, you can easily create your own custom tape by printing on Avery labels at home!

All you need are Avery Return Address Labels (#8167 or #8867) and a home printer. (I purchased the Avery 8867 labels at Target for a very reasonable price.)

I used a few awesome One Little Bird digital patterned papers – from Happygram (available 12/7), Star on Top and Jubilee – and made this printable 8.5×11 PDF.

Once you print it onto a label sheet you can peel the labels off of the sheet and use them just like washi tape. Look how cute these tapes are!

Here are a few tips for varying the look of your tapes.

Since this is the holiday gift wrapping season, I used them on plain kraft paper for gift wrapping.

You can use these little tapes for more than gift wrapping. You can use them for sealing envelopes and on handmade greeting cards. You can use them on your Project Life journal cards, in mini books, or on scrapbook pages. The possibilities are endless! We would love to see how you use them on your projects.
