10 Ways to use Washi Tape

Hi everyone, it’s Shari here! If you’re like me, you have A LOT of washi tape in your stash. I’m not sure if I’m a hoarder or if it just lasts so long, but I have a bunch and I keep buying more.

I thought it would be fun to show you a few ways to use it. I went with the home office theme, creating mini books, frames, cards and clips… all coordinating in some of my favorite colors and style.

To start out, I created my own bunting or banners to put on a Thank You card.

I found a quick and easy way of making my own envelope by sealing the sides with washi, I love this because it matches my card.

Then I carried the bunting on into decorating a frame. I used a bit of washi to accent the frame and glass. I think this would make a great dry erase board!

Next up is is a fun way to decorate a little notebook. I have a bunch of these little books too! Super quick and easy!

I have these clips, some are black some are silver toned, I covered a black one to go with my notebook.

And while I was at it, I also covered some clothes pins. I’ll be putting magnets on the backs of these to use as clips.

Back to card making, washi tape makes it a really quick way to jazz up a tag and to add a little interest to to the background.

Okay… So I got a bit crazy on this one! I used my washi in small strips to create a background and to hold a white tag in place. Then I die cut a washi covered panel to create my graffiti letters! FUN!!

And finally… I go to crafting retreats where we all share our supplies. I wrapped some of my pens and tools for easy identification!
