As a crafter one of my favourite items to work with is washi tape. I am obsessed with it and have 100s of rolls. Honestly every time there is a sale or it’s on clearance at work and I like it I buy it. 

There are different sizes, shapes, colors, designs, words and seasonal like Christmas and Halloween and many more. There are so many uses for it I have an entire on board on Pinterest dedicated to it.

Some of my favourite uses for it:

  • Greeting cards, you can use it on the card and the envelope to decorate or seal it. 
    • Birthday cards 
    • Thank you cards
    • Baby cards 
    • Note cards
    • Wedding cards
    • Engagement cards
    • Invitations 
  • Planners, decorating the pages
    • Days of the week
    • Numbers for the month
    • Skinny tape to outline the boxes
    • Little sayings to put in boxes
  • Bullet Journal, decorate the pages


Other projects I have used it for:

  • Covered up a picture frame that I didn’t like anymore
  • Couldn’t find a mat for a picture frame so I cut my own and covered it
  • Cut it out with a heart shape punch and turned it into a sticker
  • Decorate pens and pencils
  • Bookmarks
  • Cover up plain notebook covers 
  • To hold paper down on my cricut mat


There are many more ways to use washi that I haven’t explored yet but I am sure I will soon! If you want to see more ideas head over to my Pinterest page and look at my washi tape board.
