Hello! It’s Nabaa from @whimsical.doodles on Instagram! If you clicked on this blog post then you’re either someone:

  • Hoarding piles of washi tape but not sure what to do with them (just me? Okay then 😂)

Either way, I’m going to run you through some fun ways to use washi tapes in your journal! I’ll also be sharing some free Printable Washi Tapes! Printable tapes are a great way to try out a bunch of different patterns without having to get whole rolls! Plus you can print these right at home - that’s how easy it is! You can print on regular printer paper and glue them or use a sticker sheet to make it easy to use.

        Covering mistakes

          This has to be one of my favourite ways to use a washi tape! Made a mistake? Just cover it up! I’ve done this a few times when my lettering has gone wrong. Washi tapes are a quick and easy way to cover any mistakes!
