More Washi Tape Wonderful Projects For Your Classroom

Many teachers shop in Ikea for all kinds of inexpensive containers, carpets, picture frames, etc. to fill their classroom with attractive pieces that make it more homey. They are know for having goods that are simple and clean in design. I love their plain white pots that often just have a little texture. They are only a few dollars so they are affordable for a classroom. These have horizontal lines which made them perfect for washi tape decorating! Here are the results. Really nice looking and a cute pop of color... right?

Where I live we have little dollar type stores everywhere and I was cruising around and found this clear plastic box which I use when I need to take supplies with me on the run. Once I added a label and colorful tape it become this adorable box and my name is right on the front. It only took me minutes to make. As I was cruising around I found a white plastic binder. I grabbed it and made it so much cuter with some tape on the outside and inside. The pages are color coded so I can find information quickly and easily. 
Helpful Hint: I like washi tape best on white products or clear ones since the tape is a bit transparent.  Have you washi taped anything lately? I would love to get some other ideas from you so leave a comment if you want to. Now go have a "washi wonderful weekend."

We're using washi tape to decorate the "spines" of our student made books. There are so many choices that every book they make can have a different color/pattern. I can't wait to hear what others are using it for!!

An hour before parents arrived on Back to School Night, I put a Washi Tape border on my nasty old tan upright filing cabinet and heating unit. It covered up some rust and scratches and added a little pizzaz, I think!

I need your Washi tape supplier. I haven't been able to find all of the cute ones you have found!

Everything looks adorable!

I bought many of these tapes in Target, Jo-Ann Fabrics, and Michaels. Look around and ask. Sometimes they are in odd places! They are even in office supply stores. What are you thinking of making?

It's been waaay too long friend!
We have a slight addiction to washi tape as well. We lined our class mailboxes to give them a lil 'pop'.
We've found some great ones in the clearance section at Michaels-score!!! Thanks for some fun new ideas. xoxo

I am still debating what to do with the washi tape I found...but I have been using the patterned duck tape to bling up white book boxes from IKEA, crayon storage boxes, and those boxes they pack teacher manuals in (I collected 5 of those and now they smartly sit on my 5 Kindergarten tables).
