Washi Tape Twist Ties

Do you remember when I showed you how to make scrapbook paper twist ties?
Well, washi tape twist ties are even easier to make.

You can cut the wire any length you like.
I cut mine 6 inches this time because I’m using them to wrap cords.

Cut a piece of tape a little longer than the wire and place the wire on top of the tape.

Then carefully place another piece of tape on top of the wire and tape.
Trim the ends so they’re even.

And you’re done!
They’re ready to be used on anything you would normally use regular twist ties on.

Where is the best place you’ve found for Washi tape? I’m from a super small town and have no local options.
Thanks!

Ok, I LOVE this idea! I’m always looking for some twist ties. Usually I’m stealing them from bread bags or another source. This is great and pretty too!

I LOVE this idea for party favor bags! What kind of wire did you use? I tried to use some jewelry wire, but had a hard time getting it to straighten out and found it difficult to work with. Yours are so perfectly straight!

I used 26 gauge wire. It’s a little thicker and easier to work with but also easy to twist.
