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!

Duct Tape Pen Pouch

Duct Tape Pen Pouch

Hola! Today’s craft is a duct tape pen pouch, made out of a regular snack bag. You can also use this pouch to store other supplies, like scissors or washi tape. I’m not including a collage, because I think the craft is mostly self-explanatory; however, if you are confused about any steps, fell free to ask any questions in the comments section.

Materials:

Duct tape

Plastic snack bag

Scissors

1. Cover the bag in duct tape below the zipper.

2. Trim the edges. Don’t cut too close to the bag; it is better to have duct tape hanging evenly off the side than to cut the bag open.

Washi Tape Garland

Hey everyone! Today’s craft is a super cute washi tape garland! These garlands are highly popular on Pinterest, so I decided to try them out. The craft is simple and quick, but is a great way to decorate walls, bulletin boards, birthday cards, and so much more. Here’s my tutorial:

Materials:

Washi tape

Twine

Scissors

1. Wrap equally spaced pieces of tape around the twine.

2. Trim the tape pieces to your desired size and shape. To make sure all of my flags looked the same, I cut one piece to the correct shape, then placed it over the other flags so I could “trace” with scissors.

3. Hang your garland! I hung my garland with washi tape, but you could also use pushpins on a bulletin board.

That’s all!

Washi Tape Corner Bookmark

washi tape corner bookmark

Happy Earth Day! Today, after much “Pinspiration,” I created my first corner bookmark! The advantage of a corner bookmark is that it does not stick out of books, making it less easily bent and torn. Creating the bookmark is simple and quick. Of course, it’s green and brown, in honor of our fantastic Earth!

Corner bookmark instructions

Materials:

6″ by 6″ piece of cardstock

Pencil

Scissors

Ruler

Glue

Paintbrush

Washi tape

1. In pencil, lightly divide the cardstock into four equal squares (I darkened the lines in the picture to make it easier to see.)

2. Divide two opposite squares diagonally, as the picture shows.

3. Cut off two outer triangles and one square. Again, use the picture for reference.

4. Fold both triangles on top of the square. Using the paintbrush, spread a thin layer of glue over only the top of the bottom triangle. Then, press the top triangle over the bottom triangle. Don’t glue the square!

5. Cover in washi tape.

That’s all! If one bookmark just isn’t enough, try making a Duct Tape Fall Bookmark or the “It’s Rough” Duct Tape Bookmark. If you prefer reading on your kindle, make sure your e-reader has a stylish case!

Also, you should definitely check out this post on Caution District for tips on making Earth a cleaner planet.

Brighten Up your Phone Charger with Washi Tape!

Washi Tape Charger

Everything is brighter in the summer: The Sun, foods (like delicious Popsicles!), and even our clothes. Phone chargers should be no exception! Brighten up your phone charger with a bit of washi tape this weekend. Here’s how (Also, enjoy the galaxy theme of this collage; I’m pretty proud of it!)

Charger Instructions

Materials:

Scissors (for clean lines)

Phone charger (Mine had two parts: a wire and a charging cube.)

Wide colored masking tape (Mine is called Scotch Expressions masking tape and is 0.94″ wide.)

Rolls of washi tape with some transparent areas to let the masking tape show through

Steps (These are the instructions for making a charger that looks like mine, but there’s really no wrong way to do this!):

1. Wrap the charging cube in the wide masking tape.

2. Again, wrap the charging cube, but this time with your slightly transparent tape covering your first layer.

3. Cover both ends of the wire in washi tape.

4. Plug the wire into the cube!

As there are many different types of phones, chargers will vary. You can modify these steps based on your charger and personal style. I encourage you to experiment with different colors and patterns of tape. Have fun with it!

Also, I will unfortunately be on vacation next week and unable to blog. So… my next post won’t be until AT LEAST a week from now. I can hear everyone sighing at me. I’m sorry! Anyway, Adiós, and enjoy your FANTABULOUS new charger. ❤
