DIY Washi tape notebook steps

Step 1: Be creative! Determine what pattern you would like to make.

Step 2: Start taping! Washi tape is forgiving…just like masking tape. Start from the top and smooth out with the pad of your finger so you don’t have any bubbles.

Step 3: Trim your ends of washi and tape up the back side of cover.
