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 what’s my latest project? Washi tape covered desk supplies that I picked up from Target a couple months ago. I simply loved the chevron on the inside when I spotted these and knew I could spruce up the plain old outside.
Well after this stuff sitting around my house for the past couple months, my daughter asked if she could have them for the desk in her bedroom to store all her markers and papers. 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…
5 MINUTE PROJECT. NO JOKE.
I just simply rotated the colors of the washi tape as I went around the desk supplies. To get an even edge, I cut the ends with a pair of scissors. 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.
Pretty easy 5 minute project, right?
