Washi Tape Desk Supplies

Does anyone else have a teensy tiny crush on washi tape? At first I was a little timid about this “fad”, but now I’m kinda loving all the possibilities of this little decorative tape.

So to breathe some life into these brown paper mache desk supplies I dug out the washi tape I had purchased on clearance from Michael’s. And…

Also, to keep the tape down and give it some long term shelf life, I gave the entire pen holder and letter holder a quick coat of matte Mod Podge.

And now we have the perfect place to store my budding artist’s supplies to go with the desk and chair I painted for her last year. Yep, she has quite the set up for a 5 year old.

    Oh, I love this – it is so cute! I never saw Washi Tape in solids, only with patterns. I will have to keep my eyes open for some!

    I have not jumped on the fad bc I was basically like “Dude, it’s just tape”. Now I find myself thinking “hmmmm….. if I had some Washi Tape I could….”. Where in Michael’s would I find it? May just have to check it out.

      Yeah, I avoided it for a while, too, and I found some on clearance (also at Michael’s) not that long ago. I used it on a project last week and I’m officially hooked. I had to buy some other supplies earlier this week and I noticed that the seller also had washi tape…so I bought some…it’s definitely addictive!
