Washi tape your bullet journal and unlock a super simple, cute way to add a little creativity and artistic flair to your different spreads.
I hear you! One of the things you love about bullet journaling is the opportunity to be creative with your layouts. In fact, it may have been one of the things that drew you to BuJo in the first place. The beautiful doodling, hand lettering, and designs you saw on social media captivated you.
They just look so pretty 🙂
But if you’re anything like me, you don’t have the artistic skill – let alone the time – to turn your BuJo into a work of art.
It’s why we love washi tape.
Washi tape + bullet journal = a perfect match.
A powerful tool that will help you up your BuJo game – even if you don’t have an artistic bone in your body.
Here are six strategies to try.
Uplevel your dates
You love the flexibility of creating your own spreads. The blank page can become anything you want. But let’s be honest, writing out days, dates, and months can become a bit of a chore.
But not with this cute washi tape set.
Packed with 14 rolls of repositionable tape, this pack has plenty of cute designs to inspire you. Best of all there are tapes for dates, days of the week, and numbers so you can create your calendar and get yourself organized.
Simply cut, stick, and navigate through your journal with ease.
Underline and emphasize
When you rely on your bullet journal to keep you organized, you want to be able to find things quickly and efficiently. You want to highlight key words, important dates, and memorable moments.
And you can with this pack of skinny washi tape – perfect for your bullet journal.
This bumper pack contains 52 rolls in a variety of colors and designs. Each roll is 3mm wide and 4m long meaning there’s stacks of tape to play with.
Thanks to vibrant colors and repeating patterns, this cute selection is ideal for underlining your headers, creating boxes, or highlighting memos.
In fact, your biggest problem will be deciding which tape to use first!
Make your own labels
Want to add a splash of color and texture to your BuJo? You can with this pack of 40 Washi tapes.
What we love most about this cute selection is this washi tape isn’t glossy. As a result, you can write on this tape. (Yup, you read that right!) Imagine the possibilities. You could:
- Color code different sections of your bullet journal
- Create a personalized index or key
- Draw on your own designs
- Create your own colorful labels
- Prioritize and organize tasks and to-dos
- Even use to cover up errors and make mistakes look intentional
And no need to stick to black or blue ink either. Instead, use your favorite pens for mix and match coloring.
It’s a super simple way to add a splash of personality while you pretty up your journal and get yourself organized.
Designer page edges
If your BuJo is divided into multiple parts, why not add a custom edge to each section? It’s a simple way to navigate through your journal and quickly find your way to the correct page.
These metallic washi tapes are a great BuJo tool. Elegant and sophisticated, you can use these designs to add a touch of class and decoration.
With the black, white, and gold color scheme, these striking designs will help you create BuJo spreads and layouts you’re excited to share on social.
Stick in pages (and other extras)
With a BuJo, anything goes. You have complete freedom to personalize your layouts and track anything you want. Sometimes the blank page isn’t enough. Instead, you want to stick in pictures, additional pages, or templates and tables (such as habit trackers or monthly calendars) you’ve downloaded and printed out.
Washi tape is perfect for this. Instead of making do with boring sticky tape, you can add a touch of color and design.
We like this selection of extra long rolls for this job.
Add motivational messages
When you’ve got goals to hit, deadlines to meet, and to-dos to check through, you need your bullet journal to inspire you to take action.
So ramp up the motivational messages with the help of this pack of washi tape.
With a selection of motivational words, phrases, and messages, you can inspire yourself with the help of these cute tapes.
Bullet journaling is part productivity and part creativity.
It’s a powerful tool that can help you get organized while you express yourself. So give into your inner stationery nerd and treat yourself to fun bullet journaling accessories that will help you get more from your practice.
