Cute and easy $1 washi tape crafts
Hello friends! Happy Thursday! I’m so excited to share with you a few different washi tape crafts. All of these projects cost around a buck to make and can be made within 5 minutes! Can’t be that! Perfect for back to school. 🙂
I may have a small obsession with washi tape. There I said it! If you follow me on facebook you may have seen my “small” collection last night. I need an intervention! 😉
I’m loving the new Scotch Expressions Tapes. They are available in over 100 colors and patterns and four varieties—Magic Tape, masking tape, washi tape and shipping tape. SO FUN! Take a look at what I created.
Washi tape dry erase frame
For my first craft I took a dollar frame that I found at Ikea and covered the top clear piece with washi tape. Then I tucked the ends of the tape on the back side. Next I placed a 4×6 white piece of paper behind it to cover the ends. This creates a super easy dry erase frame/board. It’s so fun to write reminders or love notes on it for your family! With all the colors and patterns available, the possibilities are endless. Get creative!
Washi tape clothespins
For my next craft I made some patterned clothespins. These are such an easy way to dress them up. I found a whole bag at the dollar store and made a bunch of them. All I did was lay the clothespin on the tape and then cut off the excess tape with an exacto knife.
I also added it to my son’s lunch bag! His friends are going to be jealous! 😉
Washi tape bookmarks
Another way I used the Scotch expressions tape was by making some paper clip bookmarks. You may remember my button bookmarks… these are a fun twist on those. All you do is slip a piece of tape through the paper clip, press the tape together and cut off the top at an angle. These are great for all the book lovers out there and would make a fun and inexpensive gift!
I also made some personalized labels. All I did was print out my son’s name with my printer and pressed the tape on top of the paper. Then I slowly peeled up the tape and the letters came up with the tape. Make sure to use a light color of tape for this project.
My son saw his name and of course snatched it up right away to make a space ship. He LOVES tape! I think I’m going to fill his stocking with tape this year. Ha!
Last but not least I covered some push pins with some of my favorite tapes. They were black before and the tape adds a fun punch of color to my cute cork board! All you do is cut out a small square and wrap it around the edges of the pin. Super easy and fun!
So many possibilities! I love creating with tape! My new expression tapes are stored safely in my craft cabinet. The studio is my next big project. Cannot wait to show you what I’m up to! I wish I could have you all over to craft with me. How fun would that be?!
So what’s your favorite thing to do with patterened tape? Are you as obsessed as I am? 😉

Such cute ideas! Love that little dry erase board!
Thanks Katie! It really is so simple but adds a cute touch to the frame! 🙂
Where did you get that jar for storing it? It is really cute!
At Hobby Lobby! 🙂
so cute! I think I need to buy some tape!
I do love a craft that can be done in under 5 minutes and under $5 dollars! Nicely done!
I agree, quick and inexpensive crafts are the best! 🙂
Fun ideas Jamielyn! Love the personalized washi tape idea, very cool! Have a great day! Smiles, Jill
I finally broke down and bought some washi tape, and I am IN LOVE!!! I have several rolls of the Scotch brand that I found at Target. Love all their patterns.
I am participating in my first ever arts & crafts festival in a couple of weeks – YAY!!! I’ve been trying to come up with a simple signs for prices on tiny items. Your idea for the dry erase washi tape frames is PERFECT!!!! Thanks so much for yet ANOTHER great idea! 🙂
Washi tape really is the BEST! What a great idea, I hope you have fun at the arts & crafts festival!
Would this tape work on cloth luggage to mark it for easy finding?
It doesn’t stick to fabric very well, so I would be afraid that it would fall off the luggage!
i bought those ikea frames for my girls and was wondering what else i could do with them and now i know. plus, they are 7 and 9 and love crafting, so they can do this themselves. this post is a win win for me!
How perfect, this definitely is an easy and fun craft for little girls! Hope you enjoy! 🙂
Great ideas!! Love Washi tape!! Thanks for the great ideas 🙂
super cute ideas! I just bought my 1st roll of scotch expressions tape. the teal one you used on your son’s sandwich bag in fact! I almost got the black bicycle one lol.
The teal one is one of my favorites! So many fun ones to choose from! 🙂
I love the name labels…so many possibilities for that!
I agree, so many possibilities and colors you can choose from!
Those are all super cute!
Thanks for the feature Gail! Hope you are having a great weekend! 🙂
Where did you get the frame?
IKEA for $1! 🙂
This might be a stupid question but I really like the dry erase frame you did and I’m thinking of doing the same! Is it really possible to erase the writing you wrote on the tape?
Hi! The tape is actually inside the picture frame! The dry erase writing is on the plastic part of the frame that covers it so it erases easily! 🙂
How did you get the name on the Washi tape? So many great ideas thanks
Print the name on a piece of paper, the center the washi over it, and print again! 🙂
what type of marker do you use for the dry erase frame? does it have to be a special dry erase marker or can a sharpie be used?
Any type of dry erase marker can be used!
How do you use dry erase markers on the washi without it becoming “ghosted” into the tape?
The frame comes with 2 plastic inserts, so I just put the other plastic one in front of the washi tape one. 🙂
