Washi Tape Notebook Tutorial

August 19, 2016

Personalize your notebook with washi tape. Using just a few materials you can transform a notebook. This is a simple and easy craft that has great results. One that is worthy of gift giving, maybe a thank you gift or just something special for yourself. 





Start with your notebook open with the cover to one side to work on. The first piece of tape is the most critical in placement and alignment to the edge of the notebook.

Place your tape down touching each other. Leave extra on each end.


ready to trim
One you have the front of the notebook covered, push down on the tape well and run your fingernail along the edges in preparation to cut the excess washi tape off.

Cut the excess washi tape from the edges, using the front cover as the guide. Go slowly on the spiral edge, you may want to use a ruler to guide you.

Optional Detail:

Attention to detail
Using a gold paint marker, I covered the exposed edge of the notebook cover.
Then I covered half of the spiral binding in gold since my tape was silver and gold themed.
