Photos + Washi Tape = Cute Gift Wrap

DIY Photo Gift WrapNeed an excuse to use your washi tape stash or buy more for it?  Try out this washi tape framed photo technique that can be used on gift wrap or any flat surface.

Lets get wrapping!

DIY photo giftwrapSupplies:

Printed Photo with a white border that is half the width of your tape (refer to picture)

Washi tape


Parchment paper

DIY Photo Gift Wrap 3Lay a piece of parchment paper down for your crafting surface.  Place your photo on top of it.  Now, place four pieces of tape on the sides of your photo.  The tape should only cover the border and hang half way off the sides of the photo. All four corners of tape should overlap.  Refer to the picture above.

DIY Photo Gift Wrap 4Lift up one corner of the tape and cut the tape corner to corner.  You’re only cutting the tape, not the photo.

DIY Photo Gift Wrap 5After you cut the tape, it should look like the photo above. You’ll now have two little pieces of tape on each side that can be removed.  Carefully peel these off.

DIY Photo Gift Wrap 6When you pull off the two small pieces of tape, you will get a perfect mitered corner.  Repeat these steps for all corners of your picture.

DIY Photo Gift Wrap 2Peel the entire piece off you parchment paper and attach it to your wrapped gift. Done.

Gift wrapping tip –  Keep a roll of white gift wrapping paper on hand so you will be ready for any occasion.  I like to use the white ribbed paper that’s sold at Michaels.
