The Pin Junkie: Washi Tape Desk Set

I love washi tape because it can make anything pretty!  For this project, I made a fun washi tape desk set that's easily personalized and instantly coordinated. If you've never used washi tape before, it feels a lot like masking tape, but it's printed with fun colors and designs.  It's also really easy to work with because it's re-positional.  You can stick it on and peel it off as many times as you need to.  I started by adding washi tape to a notebook based on this idea and soon found myself putting washi tape on all kinds of things!

A little bud vase makes a pretty desk accessory and a container for holding paper clips and other small items is a necessity on any desk.  Just add a strip of washi tape to make it pretty!

I used a plastic photo frame from the dollar store to make a Post-It note holder.  Just cut a piece of paper to fit in the frame.  Add washi tape to the edges of the paper and slide it into the plastic holder.  Peel the backing off a Post-It note pad and stick it to the front of the frame.  You can get creative and personalize it with whatever quotes, initials, or pictures you want!

I received a box of chocolates that came in a plastic box awhile ago.  Since I'm one of those people who can't throw anything away because I know I'll find a use for it later, I used the bottom of the plastic box as a catch all tray.  I added washi tape around the edges of the tray to coordinate with the rest of the items.

The tray holds the desk supplies nicely, but would also be a great item for holding papers and notes.

The nice thing about washi tape is that it makes everything instantly coordinated.  This fun washi tape desk set would be perfect for a mother's day gift, a teacher's gift, or to make for yourself!

  16. I love this - and am embarrassed to say I've never bought a roll of washi tape in my life ( I'll be even more embarrassed if it actually doesn't come on a roll lol )
    Beautiful job!
