Washi Tape

Posted on

I’ve Tweeted about this a few times already but washi tape is my absolute favorite new thing this year!  My friend @mkschoen got me hooked when we decorated her library before school started.  Here is a sign we jazzed up simply by adding tape. I think this tape was actually Scotch Expressions which was more like a regular Scotch tape texture, where washi is like a masking tape and I find easier to use.
Before:
washi_MKS_2
After:
washi_MKS

Since then, I’ve used washi tape on tons of different things in my library – some functional, some decorative. Functionally, I’ve used it to define areas on my whiteboard like my center choices board:
center_choices
and to help identify library neighborhoods like my graphic novels:
washi_1
and to mark the library laptops since I have the same laptops as many classrooms:
Washi_7

I have also added washi tape to different items in the library to jazz it up:

Anyone else tried out washi tape?

    Where do you buy it? And how much?

      I buy my washi tape at Staples, Target, and AC Moore. It’s usually about $2.99 per roll but it’s often on sale at Staples for $2.00 and AC Moore always has 40% off coupons.
