Old Gift Cards:  Washi Tape Sample Tutorial

Do you ever wonder what you can do with the pile of old gift cards you have lying around?

Well today, I have a solution for you. Why not turn those old gift cards into washi tape samples that can fit just about anywhere for scrapbooking/planning on the go?  

Let’s get started with this very simple tutorial that will have you creating Washi Tape Samples in no time. 

To get started, gather some of your old gift cards. 

The next step will probably be the hardest and will more than likely take the most time….it’s selecting your favorite washi tape!  And if you’re like me and addicted to the tape, you will have a lot to choose from. 

After selecting your top washi tapes you will get one of your gift cards and wrap the tape around it as many times as you like.  I like to wrap mine 10 times around. 

Since these samples were for my oldest daughter, I had her assist with the project. 

And that’s all too it. Once you’re done making all of your samples you are now ready to use and store them. 

This is my daughters storage container that we found at Target where she houses her planner and all her supplies. 

She keeps her stickers and washi tape samples in this zipper pouch also from Target. 

You can also use the hard clear acrylic from packaging, cut it down to whatever size and use it for samples as well.  

The acrylic packaging is also a great way like the gift cards to upcycle and they fit perfectly into the pockets for Pocket Letter Washi Tape Samples. 

I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial. Please feel free to follow me on Instagram and also leave me a comment below if you would like to see more tutorials. Thanks and 

Happy Planning!
