Why is washi tape so popular?
Washi tape has taken the market by storm because there are so many washi tape patterns and lovely colours that every person can find washi tape according to their taste.
What is so special about washi tape? Everyone can find their favourite design, and use it across different mediums and applications. From the more traditional Japanese washi tape designs, to cute and adorable characters, botanical washi, vintage washi, floral designs, food and more!
We chose to create a doodle set containing 10 rolls of washi containing adorable and whimsical doodles to bring colourful inspiration into your art making process.
How to use washi tape in your planner
There are many planner and bujo washi uses, some people use the washi as an accessory, holding other scraps of paper, while others use the washi to create sections and lines to write on.
In this colourful planner layout, the sweets and plants washi from our doodle washi set were used to outline the days of the week (combined with pink and green respectively to tie it all together).
You need to find inspiration on a style of planner you like and try to mimic the washi tape use first. Eventually you’ll figure out what works best for you and your planner style.
Washi tape is a staple for bullet journal and no bujo kit is complete without a set of washi!
Washi tape for journaling
If you like to do art or junk journals, then washi can be your ally, being used as painter's tape or masking tape for clean edges on your paper.
You can also integrate it into your layouts by creating patterns and texture using your washi.

Washi tape for gift wrapping
Adding a splash of colour to your gift wrapping can be a great detail. It’s also very important to know, since washi can be repositioned, people often save the little bits of washi and reuse it on their journals or for other gifts (it is a great improvement from cello tape).
Use craft paper and one of our doodle washi to create a fun and quick pattern - add details with a nice bow, and voila!
Create a criss-cross of washi tape over the top of a gift box for a nice personalised touch. In this cute star-themed box, we added our night doodles washi tape to keep the stars and moon theme.
Washi tape for painting
Have you ever watched those satisfying masking tape peeling videos on Instagram? Did you notice most of them use washi tape? Painter's tape can be harsh on paper, so a lot of artists began experimenting with washi tape to get clean edges on their pieces.
Specially, washi tape for watercolour artists is the key to clean edges. This kind of tape is a lot less harsh on the paper surface, preventing paper tearing.
Washi tape for walls
This was a use that we were both surprised and amazed by! Of course, you can use washi tape to hang pictures on your wall or bedroom door, but how about making a nice design on a wall using washi tape? That’s new!
