Washi Taped NotebookSunday, November 23, 2014
I am currently staring blankly on this page thinking what should I write today. I am clearly taking my time off work since I wanted to do the things I love to do during the weekend for a change. But it did not happen since I chose to rest more than to be productive. I guess I will just have to share what I did in the office a month ago while killing time. Recently, I've been starting to collect office supplies and so obsessed in fixing my work table. I want to buy a lot of work stuff even though in reality, I do not have my own cubicle to keep all those things. I only have my table and my drawers. So what I did was play with my washi tapes. I bought a few to try it out and I think it was long overdue that's why I decided to do something about it.
Since I lost mine, my boss gave me her extra notebook. It was a requirement for us to have one especially if we will attend meetings--definitely a must. I wanted it to blend to my colorful table so I decided to cover it with washi tapes like this:
The trick is to choose washi tapes with designs that will compliment each other. So I picked first the one with polka dots and the one with a gingham print. I actually reached almost half of the notebook when I realized that these two rolls are not enough to cover the whole thing. Imagine my pain to remove it again so I can add another design. Oh well, there's always room for mistakes.
I added the "preppy-ish" design to the bunch. When sticking the washi tape, make sure that it is straight and that you start an inch from the inside so you can secure it with another set of tape. It's not shown in the photos, but on the back part of my notebook, there was a bitin part so I had to break the alternate design. It's a lesson learned to always get twos or threes of each design. The finish product was not that perfect but I liked it. It ended pretty nice actually. I thought the patterns will not work but surprisingly, it did!
What do you guys think? :) Have a great day!
