I use my iPad and iPhone to help keep myself organized, but I still write the occasional paper note. Unfortunately, even with a clean desk paper notes can easily be missed. Hence, “See It Reminder cards”. Decorative tapes are a perfect way to call attention to a particularly important note and make sure that it does not blend in with other papers on a desk or table.
A Great Way to Use Scraps
I used Target brand Printed Paper Tape for the examples above, but this project works well with any washi or decorative style tape. If you have any bright tapes in your collection that you do not like as much or are lower quality this is an excellent use for them. If you need the note to last a bit longer and want to make it more sturdy you can use duct tape, but for most notes washi style tapes are the simplest. Obviously, if you use duct tape you would leave enough space to write the actual note.
- Decorative Tape
- Note paper, index cards, etc
The instructions are easy.
- Match up your tape with one end of the piece of paper. I used an index card for the example.
- Unroll the tape until you reach the end of paper. If it is not completely straight washi style tapes can usually be lifted up and then reapplied to make it straight.
- You can either cut the end of the tape where it reaches the paper’s edge or tear it a little past the paper’s edge and wrap the torn end around the paper.
- Write your note, save the note paper, give some to someone, etc
