I have been wanting to post about washi tape for a while now but I could never think of a DIY that was exciting enough for its own post, then I realised I could combine a few of these projects together and create a post that encompasses my favourite ways to use washi tape. I know Pinterest is chock full of ideas for making use of the rolls of washi tape rolling around in your stationery draw but I thought I would share 3 washi crafts I have actually tried.
DIY mini bunting can be used for everything from wrapping presents to cake decorating, simply fold a piece of tape around some twine or string then cut into triangles or flags, it’s so easy that everyone I know will be recieving bunting birthday cards for the foreseeable future!
Washi tape is amazing for jazzing up plain notebooks or folders, no-one is going to rock up to class with the same stationery as you if you customise it with tape. Think up your design then simply cut and stick into place, no glue required. The best part? You can craft yourself a matching pencil and pen set (every stationery hoarders dream).
I can’t stand blank walls so I find washi tape is an amazing way of filling your walls with artwork or photographs, you can put together inspiration boards or stick all your memories on your wall without needing to buy tonnes of expensive frames. I’ve seen some amazing frames fashioned out of tape on Pinterest but I opted to keep things simple for this post.
I picked up my washi tape from Primark for £1.50 for 4 rolls, but blogger Kate has just opened her own online stationery store which stocks some amazing rolls for around £2.00 each! Are you as obsessed with this whimsical tape, if so what are you favourite uses?
