Washi Tape Stickers

washi tape stickers

Hey Doodlers! Today’s craft, washi tape stickers, can be used to decorate anything, from school supplies to switch plates to Mother’s Day cards. Let’s get started:

washi tape stickers

Materials:

Washi tape

A square of wax paper

Shaped hole punch

Scissors

1. Cover the wax paper in washi tape. Make sure each strip of tape overlaps the strips next to it. Otherwise, your stickers will fall apart.

2. Trim the edges of the wax paper.

3. Using the shaped hole punch, punch out your stickers. To make sure I didn’t waste too much washi tape, I punched around the outside of my wax paper square, and then cut off the used outline. I repeated this until I reached the middle of the square.

To use your stickers, just peel off the wax paper backing. These stickers are incredibly easy to make, and have so many uses!

Back to School: Washi Tape Pencils PLUS Matching Pencil Jar!

Washi Tape Pencils and Jar

I’ve been spending lots of time on the internet lately, looking for ideas to customize my boring school supplies. Washi tape pencils are all over Pinterest (follow Duct Tape Doodles here), so I decided to give them a try! This craft worked REALLY well, and I’m super impressed with this method because the completed pencils can still be sharpened, although I recommend using a handheld sharpener just in case. They were super easy to make, and to be honest, once I started I couldn’t stop! Here’s how I did it:

Materials: Pencils, washi tape

1. Cut 2 pieces of washi tape to be the same length as the unsharpened part of the pencil.

2. Wrap the pencil! I recommend wrapping the pencil vertically, instead of coiling the tape around it. This uses less tape, and in my opinion looks a lot better. You will most likely need two pieces of tape to cover the entire pencil.

Wrapping the pencil

 

And that’s pretty much it! I was really enjoying washi taping, though, so I decided to make a matching pencil jar. This was inspired by LaurDIY’s Mason Jar Cup.

Materials:

A jar (I used a caper jar because I liked its tall, thin shape.)

Washi tape

1. Wash the jar and remove the label.

2. Cut pieces of washi tape and wrap them around the jar.

That’s all for now! It may be a bit until my next post, because the new school year will be very busy. See ya soon!
