[…] Washi Tape LEGO: Transform your old Lego Duplo blocks with some washi tape. These washi tape lego duplo blocks are colorful and can be used for matching patterns! (via No Time for Flash Cards) […]
Have you guys ever heard of or used washi tape? Washi tape is basically fancy Japanese masking tape that has become pretty popular for crafting, and every time I see the lovely colors and patterns I want them all so I can make people cute greeting cards and package my cakes nicely. But then I look at the price and realize that they are $18 bucks for three tiny rolls and I’m like “WTF Japan I am not made of money”, so I pass.
To start just take your washi tape and place it on your notebook. You can do any pattern or style that you want. We decided to just keep it simple and do some vertical patterns using the matching washi tapes. To make your pencils, you do the same thing but going horizontally around the pencil. Make sure to leave a little room so you can sharpen your pencil.
