Why we love it:
  • What’s not to love??? These candles are made from washi tape, but you could use paper scraps or pieces of wrapping paper to play around with colour combinations. 
  • You don’t have to be artistic or crafty to recreate this look – the drawing is simple and if you use washi tape you just need to be capable of sticking it down!
  • The colours in above image are quite feminine, but by simply changing the colours and patterns this look could be easily adapted for a man or a child. 
  • The natural kraft paper makes a great blank canvas, but you could also use black, white or another plain coloured paper for a similar effect. 

Do you know someone who would like this wrapping paper?
