This is seriously one of the easiest DIY’s you’ll ever come across. I would say if you can tape in a straight line, you’re golden!
All you need is a composition notebook (or any notebook), your favorite washi tape and some Post-it® Durable Tabs! For this one, I didn’t get too crazy with patterning different tapes, but you totally could if you wanted. The possibilities are endless.
Simply lay your notebook on a flat surface and run the tape from the binding (or around it if you want) and fold the edges to the inside of the cover.
Pro Tip: If your washi is at all transparent, you’re going to have to layer your tape or lay a piece of printer paper over the cover. The black pattern of the composition notebook I used showed through my choice of washi, so I glued a piece of paper to the cover, cut it to fit and laid my washi on top of that.
Like I said above, we’re using ours as a journal this year. We’ll have experience entries (for things like field trips or life events), a tab for everyday writing and then I left a section for creativity. I thought this would be an awesome way to show her how far she’s come throughout the school year and over the years as time passes. I used Post-it® Durable Tabs to section the notebook off. I also got this 4 pack of different sized sticky notes and single pad Post-it® notes to write little notes and memories of my own to add to her journal entries.
My office supply obsession isn’t such a bad thing after all! I also use the tabs and Sticky Notes in my planner to note everyday stuff from To-Do lists to payments. This planner is my lifeline and I spend a lot of time working and reworking things in and out of our schedule so the sticky notes come in handy until I put things down in stone. I got my stash at Walmart in the office supply section.
Tell be below: what is your favorite way to use washi? Are you a Post-it® hoarder too? How do you keep organized during the school year?
