TIME NEEDED: 10 minutes

Scotch® Brand Supplies:


  • Paper lunch bags
  • Plastic sandwich bags
  • Hobby knife
  • Cutting mat

Plan and prep. Choose your colour scheme and your product. If you would like to replicate the design we have featured in this project, simply refer to list above. This tutorial will assume you’ve selected these items.

Start your taping. Using Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape and Scotch® Expressions Masking Tape, spell out a name, make a first initial or snip pieces of tape to create an eye-catching geometric pattern. For a name, roll out your tape on a cutting mat. Using a straightedge, trim it into as many small pieces as you need to make letters.
Lunch-Bags-optimizedLetter creation. For a letter, adhere Scotch® Expressions Masking Tape first, then apply a layer of Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape for pop.

Bag creation. For a plastic or paper bag, cut pieces of tape to add funny faces and patterns.
Lunch-Bag-optimizedEXPERT TIP: Keep your design low on the bag so you can roll the top down for carrying and still have the decorations show.
