washi tape ideasDo you love washi tape ideas?

I do! There’s no telling what you can create and decorate with the tons of different washi tape colors and patterns.

You can decorate pretty much anything, from kitchen utensils, to your walls, or even your clipboards.

For the most part I use my washi tape in my bullet journals, but occassionally I’ll use it to decorate something that seems bland or could use a pop of a few colors.

That’s one of the great things about washi tape. It’s not hard to remove at all, it comes in all the colors you can imagine, and it’s easy to use (and not too sticky and messy).
