How to Make Handmade Washi Tape Christmas Cards

It’s that time of year to make a set of handmade Christmas cards for my charge’s teachers. I honestly can’t believe that it has been a year since we made last year’s ones! Where has this year gone? Last year we made footprint penguins (which you can find here), for this year we went for Washi tape Christmas cards. Washi tape is an amazing addition to any craft box, unlike normal tape Washi tape is easily removed from paper without ripping it, plus it comes in array of colours and designs.

Make sure you follow my Christmas board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later

You will need:

  • Washi tape
  • Card Stock
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • A5 Record Card – I got some really great coloured ones from Paperchase
  • Christmas cookie cutters
  • Glue

Place the cookie cutter in the middle of your record card and draw around it.


Cut out the shape so that you are left with a hole in the middle of the record card.


Fold your card stock in half to create a card.

Place the record card in the middle of the card stock and lightly draw around the cut out shape.

Use strips of Washi tape to cover the shape you have just drawn on the card stock.


Glue the record on top.


Gosh, that sounds rather complicated doesn’t it, but it really isn’t. It is so simple that even a child could do it. The only thing that they may need help with is creating a hole in the middle of the record card so that they can cut the shape out.

This craft may aid development of:

  • Fine motor skills
  • Use of scissors
  • Measurement – the length of tape needed for each strip
