DIY Washi Tape Notebooks - Ideas for Using Washi Tape
There have been some really unique and fun DIY washi tape projects floating around the web recently so I thought I’d give a try at creating some of my own! My first project was to design some notebooks – which are perfect for back to school to use as agenda books for homework and projects, sketches and drawings, mini-diaries, inspiration and idea books, and even photo books for your snapshots.
DIY Washi Tape Notebook Craft Project
I started with some adorable little handmade blank books from Jotters and Journals and some washi tape from Downtown Tape. I also used some scrapbooking papers, Mod Podge, and scrapbook embellishments.
DIY Washi Tape Family Photo Album Craft Project
I made a cute mini photo album with my first handmade blank book and some washi tape. The floral, dot and stripe designs on this album are creating by just sticking washi tape to the notebook in a design that I liked. This is super simple to do. Just stick like you would regular tape and trim off the excess with scissors! Once I covered the front of the notebook, I also put a strip of tape down the spine of the book for a more finished look. I then sprayed the book with a clear acrylic sealer to seal it and added a metal label embellishment.
DIY Decoupage Blank Book and Washi Tape Journal
For my second book I decoupaged a patterned paper to the cover of the book with Mod Podge and then placed washi tape along the spine of the book. Next, I sprayed with a clear acrylic sealer. I then added a metal camera and film scrapbook embellishment for the final touch. Both of these blank books were so easy to create. You can customize almost any type of book cover with washi tape, scrapbooking papers and Mod Podge. Use these little books for notes, recipes, homework assignments, photo albums, even journals! They are perfect to give the kids for back to school or even tucking into stockings during the holiday as stocking stuffers!
DIY Washi Tape Life Journal
Don’t just limit this project to yourself though. Make it a family affair! These blank books are perfect as rainy day projects for you AND the kids! This project is easy and clean up is a snap. Pictured above is the washi tape journal my son made.
Have you tried a washi tape project yet?
