DIY twist ties from Japanese masking tape

How charming is this this idea from Zakka Life? Pretty twist ties made with patterned Japanese masking tape. Check out the tutorial right here. Add a little something special to your homemade gift packaging and your banana bread will taste even better, I'm pretty sure.

I saw this when she posted it originally. So clever! I'm going to try it with ribbon and double stick tape.

Why have I never thought of that??? So easy! I just bought a bunch of self adhesive ribbon by accident and was wondering what I'm going to do with it now. A little floral wire and, poof, instant cute twist ties!

hi-d, you can find lots of masking tape here at Happy Tape, in shops at Etsy.com, or just Google to find some. It's so pretty!

I love these! I just wrapped up some blueberry muffins for someone this morning and that would have made it extra special.

I think you could also do this with fabric strips and stitch witchery. Such a cutie idea!

LOVE IT!

This is such a great idea! Do you happen to know where I could get custom-printed japanese-style tape? I run two community gardens which donate organic produce to a local food pantry, and it would be nice when we donate the produce to tie up the bags with twist-ties with our non-profit name.

Jess said...

Hmm, not sure. You could also use a standard green twist tie and string a little printed tag on it or something.

Fabulous! I'm super excited to try this!
