20 Second crafts, washi tape pencils
Do you still use notebooks and pencils? Or have you gone completely digital with your doodles and thoughts? I still love using pencils and paper to write down all my idea's, drawings and general nonsense. A little notebook is always present in my bag as especially when I'm travelling I like dotting down idea's. Staring out of a train window seams to trigger my creative thought process :)
Of course to compliment your notebook you need some fun pencils but sometimes these are hard to find and rather expensive. Luckily there is a very simple way to brighten up the content of your pencil case for a fraction of the price, use washi tape to cover the plain outside! Have a look at the video to see how easy this is.
I think I might cover all my pencils! And as washi tape is made from paper it will tear away easily when your sharpen your pencils.
I hadn't made a new episode for my 20 second crafts playlist in such a long time! I think these colourful pencils are a great project to start up the quick crafts section again. As you can see in the video I have a massive selection of washi tapes, I use them for decorating almost anything. I'm surprised Kermit the dog hasn't been covered yet in washi tape tiger stripes :D
I buy most of my tapes at Hema (my fav Dutch store with a great stationary department) and Paperchase but you can find some great ones online as well. Do you like using washi tapes? Do you have a favourite brand, pattern or colour you like to use?
I'll be back next week with a new project, see you then! xx Hester
