DIY: Washi Tape School Supplies


Hi readers! Happy Sunday! Today we have a fun DIY feature by Aly Dosdall for the We R Memory Keepers blog! Are you ready for school? For many kids around the globe… it has begun! Aly Dosdall has thought of a fun way to personalize your supplies, and make the ordinary tools extraordinary!



  1. Pick your favorite washi tapes and make regular pencils FUN!
  2. Make a comfortable place to hold your eraser by adding a strip or two of washi along the center and erase those mistakes!
  3. Add a fun element to your jumbo paperclips and turn them into a nice bookmark or page marker to keep organized for the school year!



Thanks for reading today and thanks to Aly and the WRMK blog for allowing us to share this fun DIY feature!

Coming Soon TOMORROW!!!!

  2. These are very cute ideas – I really need to remember to use all my washi tape! Thanks for the inspiration :-)

  3. Great way to personalize school supplies. This would also help my child identify which supplies are hers. Another great use for washi tape.

  4. This would be such fun for kids going back to school. Maybe I’ll just have to dress up my pencils and have some fun, too! Love WRMK!


  5. I can’t wait for tomorrow. Why is it taken so long. What time does it go live at, 12 midnight.. because there will be no sleeping for me.

  6. Oh washi tape… your many uses! Thanks for the great ideas! Can’t wait until tomorrow for Stamptember!

  7. This is a great way to dress up pencils, but a suggestion (as a teacher), don’t decorate them all the way down. They cannot be sharpened properly then.

  8. Love the ideas with Washi Tape. I am going to do this with my pencils and brushes, and for the kids, great to know which pencils are theirs.
    Looking forward to Stamptember.
