Washi Tape Bookmark Tutorial


Many of my readers - if there are any out there - may remember this very simple tutorial for a DIY bookmarks using decorative duct tape. After my very awesome score of these several rolls of washi tape at my local Dollar Tree, I decided to make another version :)

So cute! And oh so simple ;)

Here is what you need for this project:

  several rolls of washi tape in different, colorful designs

Yarn scraps
hole punch
poster board - I used some left over from this project (not pictured)
clear packing tape (not pictured)

Let's get started!

I had a pieces of white poster board about 9.5 inches long and 1.5 inches wide.
I carefully began to unroll and adhere the washi tape to the poster board piece a little at a time.

I intentionally left a small amount over hanging. This was to stick the tape to my desk to keep my work from moving around and it can easily be trimmed off later.

I began adding additional layers in different patterns.

I cut the access poster board off with scissors to keep the washi tape straight.

Next, use the packing tape to "laminate" the entire piece. This basically means you sandwich the bookmark in between two pieces of clear tape.

Now you can take your scissors and begin trimming the ends.

Also trim the access clear tape.

You then essentially have a completed bookmark ;)
but why stop there?

Mine was a little long so I snipped it in half to create two bookmarks.
I used the hole punch to create a hole at one end of each mark.

Using the scrap yarn from other project, I lopped a tassel through each hole.

So cute! I plan on keeping one for yet another creative journal I am making.
The other I shall send to a friend ;)



I will be linking up to these awesome parties!
