Two weeks today until Christmas! I spent a lazy Saturday evening, with Strictly on the telly and baked Camembert in the oven, making my cards and wrapping presents.

The cards and tags are just basic shapes made from patterned washi tape and wrapping paper offcuts.

Here’s the best way to shape the washi tape: cut with a scalpel on a plastic board. It peels off quite easily for transfer onto the card.

Isn’t my Charley Harper birdie wrapping paper pretty? It’s on sale at Fred Aldous right now. All my other supplies were from there too (except the heart paper, which was from Daiso in San Fran), including MT patterned tape at the best prices I’ve seen. Yay Christmas!

    Where do you buy the tape in London?

  7. Hi Kate – these cards are great. You’ve nearly tempted me in to making my own cards this Christmas! You might find some handy bits for this kind of thing on our website – Love Craft.
