washi-tape-paper-mache-gift-boxI’m so blessed in my life and giving back is such a rewarding feeling. Knowing that I could give back to help a baby leaves my heart full of joy. That’s why I’ve joined JOHNSON’S® #MoreHandMoreHearts campaign to support happy and healthy moms and babies.

This holiday season, anyone can join us in support of families and babies in need with a few simple steps:

  • Consider creating baby care kits for a family in need. Visit the JOHNSON’S® Facebook page,, for suggestions on what to include.

DIY Washi Tape Gift Box

johnsons-baby-gift-donationI wanted to get a little crafty, so I put my own special touch on the gift box. I’m obsessed with washi tape. Whenever it goes on sale I stock up, so I decided to use different patterns of washi tape to dress up a plain paper mache box. It was quick, easy and inexpensive. You can dress up a gift box for any type of occasion.

johnsons-baby-care-gift_edited-1baby-donation-kitIncluded in the gift box are some baby essentials like shampoo, lotion, diaper rash cream, baby powder, Onesies, and cotton swabs. I know that when my son was first-born, these things, along with diapers, were the most important things for a mom to keep on hand. Head to your local Walmart for a great selection of baby essentials.

  • Paper Mache Box
  • Washi tape in different colors and patterns
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint, if desired
  • Paint brush

1. Paint box white, if desired. Please note that washi tape is a little see-through, so you might be able to see the color of the box underneath.

2. Take your first roll of washi tape and start wrapping it around the bottom of your box. Repeat this step – alternating different colors or patterns of washi tape until you reach the top of the box.

3. Paint or add washi tape to the lid, if desired. (I didn’t use the lid for this project.)

4. Add a coat of Mod Podge to the entire box on top of the washi tape. (This helps the washi tape stick to the box).

5. Add paper shreds to the inside of your box and then add your products. That’s it!

6. If desired, get some cellophane and a ribbon and wrap the box inside for a nice gift display!
