4.3/5 - (7 votes)

With only two simple elements of kokeshi dolls and washi tape, this craft project will be just perfect for this Mother’s Day.  And with just a little pen detail, you can make these cards in no time. You can use the kokeshi illustrations for gift tags, bookmarks, and more.


  • Washi tape
  • Parchment paper
  • Scissors
  • Cardstock
  • Markers
  • Ink pens

*Tip – Washi tape is easier to cut when it’s on parchment paper.

1.  Place a four-inch strip of tape on parchment paper

2.  With scissors, round the top edge of the tape.

3.  Cut out a small groove for the neckline.

4. Place tape on the front of the card.   With a marker, draw a head.  Don’t worry if it’s not perfect.  You can fix it when you add the hair.

5.Draw the eyes and kimono detail with ink pens.  For the lips and cheeks, use a marker.  And to finish it off, place a tiny piece of washi tape in the center of the kimono as an obi.

For more inspiration, search online for kokeshi doll pictures.  Mix and match tapes for different styles.
