Washi tape + tea lights = cute gift!

Washi tape!!! I love this stuff! I *need* a whole lot more of it. :) Here's a cute little hostess gift idea I slapped together this morning.

And yes, I even made the box! This is the mini pizza box die from Lifestyle Crafts. It's so super easy to make and stinkin' cute. I used a piece of packaging from my Big Shot cutting pads for this one. Glue dots hold it together.

Tea lights. I get them in bags of 100 so I have lots of them to dress up! {See?? I told you I need more washi tape! ;) }Plain lights become cute little decor items when wrapped in pretty washi tape. It's the perfect size so no trimming need.  Use the same tape to wrap around the box and you have a super cute gift presentation. How cute would this be if you did it in colors to match the hostess's decor?! {if you know what her colors are}

Adorn with a flower and tag and you're good to go. I used My Creative Time flower petals die and teeny tag die. "Just for you" stamp is also My Creative Time.

Thanks for stopping by today. I'm off now to make cards for World Card Making Day tomorrow! Are you ready?? Go forth and create cards, my crafty friends!!!
