Easy Washi Tape Crafts

Washi tape, or small craft tape, has been really popular these past couple years. I’ve never bought any and never really knew what to do with it. I’ve always loved all the looks and designs – there are so many options! Even duct tape is starting to sell a small decorative version.

Here are some simple crafts using this craft tape to add some personality to every day items.

Here are some generic clothespins and a couple of craft tapes I picked out. The clothespins around around $1.00-$3.00 depending on what store you go to. The dollar store is a great place to pick these up. The craft tapes I picked up at Hobby Lobby, they were regular $3.99 but were on sale for 50% off and there were 2 in a pack.

Just press the washi tape onto the back of a clothespin and tear off right at each edge. Seal the sides down with your fingers. I made little rips with my finger nail so the tape would fit around the small metal piece on the side. You can’t even tell.

I think these adorable clothespins could have so many uses. Maybe to go in a laundry room… or used as a picture display with some twine for a birthday party.

I am a teacher and have a bulletin board with these clothespins. I leave them up all year and clip up student work throughout the year. It is so much easier than stapling, removing, stapling, removing. I can change out student work so much faster this way. I plan on using these craft tape clothespins next year to add some more color and fun to my classroom next year.

You could also add magnets to the back and use them on a fridge.

Next up we have some plain black binder clips. These were around $1.50 at Hobby Lobby. I used the same Paper Studios craft tape.

I think these would make great gifts for teachers, students, office coworkers or even yourself. They add some personality to any paperwork or office.

Just a heads up though if you choose a tape with white on it and place it on a black binder clip the white becomes transparent. You can see how that happened on my yellow chevron tape above and my blue and white strip clip below.

Remember my retirement party post? My friend was cleaning out her room and had several notepads she was getting rid of. I took a stack of them home… I am the biggest list maker – notes for the blog, writing recipes and weekly menus, to-do lists… I might have a problem. Anyway… these notepads were used and plain but the border at the top was the perfect width for the craft tape.

Playing with the Washi Tape was fun. I can’t wait to find more crafts to use it with.
