Washi Tape Christmas Tree Cards

Washi Tape Christmas Tree Cards

Thanks to Microsoft Bing Smart Search for inspiring and sponsoring this craft post. #ThisIsBing

Several weeks ago Consumer Crafts had a blowout sale on washi tape for just $1 per roll. Needless to say, I went hog wild and purchased a roll of practically every design they had. It doesn’t take much to make this girl happy! I’ve since had so many ideas swimming around in my head of all the things I could do with this magic tape. I caught a miserable cold last week and got busy with work, so all that washi tape has been sitting on the craft table collecting dust. I was browsing some paper crafts on the new Bing Smart Search, and found the inspiration to make these fun Washi Tape Christmas Tree Cards. I am so happy with how they turned out!

New Bing Smart Search

I recently updated my PC from Windows 8 to 8.1 and have really been enjoying using the new Bing Search. It’s a super fast way to find what you’re looking for on your touch device. You don’t even have to open a browser. Just swipe from the side of your tablet or PC and start typing in the search bar. One search brings you information from across your device, the cloud, apps, and the web.

Bing Smart Search

As a visual person, the large images are very appealing and help me to find what I need quickly. No more endless rows of blue links–save time and clicks with easy-to-read results.

Bing Smart Search for Windows 8.1

One of my favorite Microsoft Bing Search features is the web previews which help you see at-a-glance what the web page looks like behind each search result. That means fewer clicks to find the right link. Plus, you can take action right from the search results. Launch apps, open files, call a friend, change settings, and more, all with a single click.

Washi Tape Christmas Tree Cards How-To
I am so happy to have found the inspiration to make my washi tape Christmas cards. If you are not familiar with washi tape, it’s inexpensive paper thin craft tape that can be used in a variety of ways. It’s readily available in local craft stores and online. These Christmas cards took me just minutes to make. I simply folded a piece of card stock paper in half, tore the washi tape into graduated pieces, and gently pressed the tape onto the card. I was thrilled to realize that I had some gold star tape in my stash, for the tops of the trees.

    Those are really neat, I can barely get my Christmas cards out in time so I won’t be making them any time soon, LOL. I love using Bing for search, I get such relevant results when I use it compared to other search engines.

    Well, I don’t know if I will be using bing search. I don’t have windows 8 and I like to use a more private search like startpage.com but I think these cards are tres chic. I have heard a lot about washi tape and always wondered how one would use it in crafting. This is a great idea.

  3. Carolann Leibenguth says

    What a cute creative idea. I would have never thought something so simple could be so pretty. This is another one of your crafts I can do with the kids not to mention it’s cheap :)

  4. says

    I have not bought Washi Tape yet because I am afraid I will get hooked. These cards are so cute! I may have to go out and buy some just to make our holiday cards.

  5. Tammy S says

    I love these! What a great idea for using up some of our washi tape. My daughter is obsessed with washi tape and has every color and style she can find. I have got to have her make some cards for her friends. Thanks for the great idea!

  6. says

    You scored a great deal on Washi tape. I love it. Now every time I wrap the present I tape it up with washi tape. You can even make a birthday cake card design similar to the technique used for Christmas trees on your cards.

  7. Sandy Cain says

    I’ve seen references to Washi tape here and there, but never really understood what it was. Thanks for the explaination! As for Bing Search, I prefer it Google. I seem to get more results!

  8. says

    You did a great job with those cards! I love Washi Tape – it’s so fun! I work off a MAC so I’m not familiar with Microsoft Search Bing, but my husbands new Windows tablet is probably Windows 8.1. I will have to check it out.

  9. says

    Oh my goodness those are too cute! I have an obsession with Washi tape but don’t own any because I don’t know what to do with it- well, you just gave me a reason to buy some!

  10. Tanya Holland says

    I love them. Your Christmas cards are so cute. My girls and I make ornaments but never cards. I like the idea.

  11. Tracy Jones says

    I love this idea. I have been trying to find something for my daughters class to do as a holiday project and I think they would enjoy making these. Thank you posting.

  12. Kimberly Snyder says

    I received a free sample of the washi tape and now I am in love!! The variety of colors and patterns is astounding. It is sooo user friendly, no worries about placing it improperly, just take it off and redo without harm to your project. I can’t say enough positive things about it and I love your Holiday cards you made with it. Thanks!!

  13. Vera S says

    Thanks for the ideas. I have been seeing Washi Tape around and did not really know what to do with it. I think I could manage the tree cards. :)

  14. Rosie says

    How adorable! I never noticed this tape before, in my gleanings for post-holiday bargains, I’m going to grab this if I can get some for next year!!!

  15. says

    I am looking for a creative way to make a sign or letters to spell out my nephews name above his crib. I want it to look nice but unique too. I love crafts so this GC would be awesome to use towards his name craft project.

  16. Debra L. says

    I have never seen this before so I must thank you for posting! Having 2 boys I’m seeing I miss out on so much! Washi tape? This is a whole new world!!!

  17. sylvia says

    I’m hoping to make all my family’s gifts next year, so I’d like to get some ideas for collages and cards. Thanks!

  18. Lisa Hackney says

    I just found out that my first grandchild is on the way, so I will be looking for ideas for things to make for the baby!!

  19. Kymberly Pray says

    I adore all things Bing. and use this search engine many times a day. When I heard people were upcycling toilet paper tubes, I knew these were some peeps I wanted to roll with (unavoidable pun). I searched for wreaths and found a sample I could copy. I am pretty pleased with the result. I wanted it to be season changeable so teeny clothespins are currently holding on children’s picture book pages from ‘Twas the Night Before .. I can then put big sappy pink hearts for Valentine’s, or maybe, in keeping with the kids theme, find some vintage cupid card ephemera, the kind we used to leave in each others cubby at school.

  20. Ashley says

    I would use bing to look up crafty ways to make a cute picture with the washi tape for my sons animal themed nursery.

  21. Teresa says

    I didn’t know you could do a search like that on your smart phone. Thanks for letting me know. That is so much easier than trying to search for it on your own. I can think of loads of things Bing could help me with. Recipes for certain ingredients I have on hand, or craft projects like you did.

  22. Cynthia P says

    I’m sure I will use it all of the time searching craft ideas for the kids… who am I kidding… We all know that the craft projects are really for myself!!! LOL

  23. Kortney Picker says

    I love searching for new projects to do with my daughter or with my class. I guess the next one would be valentines day!

  24. Gina F. says

    I think my next project search will be for origami patterns… Yes, origami. I want to make origami birthday cards for my friends.

  25. Janet W. says

    I would be using it to search for how to make my own cards, especially for Christmas and birthday. I think the card recipients would love the thought and effort.

  26. Tracy says

    Love washi tape (these cards are adorable!). I’d search for Silhouette Cameo ideas — hope to get one soon, and want to be ready to go!

  27. Michaela R. says

    I would use it for crafts on how to make nifty cards during holidays, and also ideas of how to put together my scrapbook.

    Ideas for young children. We got my granddaughter all kinds of craft supplies for Christmas, because she loves to do crafts of any kind.
