Washi Tape Pencils
Paper wrapped pencils have been around for years and it is not surprising that with the explosion of interest in washi tape many crafters have tried washi tape pencils. I decided to test it out myself and found it is a nice way to add a bit of cheer to my desk.
Making washi tape pens or pencils is easy. Cut a strip of tape that is the length of the part of the pen or pencil you want to be wrapped in washi tape. Carefully lay down the strip of tape. Take the time to really smooth out the tape and make sure it is firmly attached.
For most pens and pencils the washi tape will be too thin to cover the whole pencil or pen. Cut a second strip that is the same length as the first one. Place the second strip on the part that the pen or pencil that the first piece of tape did not cover.
If you have overlap on your strips you can either trim the top strip so that there is one layer all around the pen or pencil or you can allow it to overlay the first strip. With some dot washi tape the two layers looks good.
The red and white dot tape is MT brand. The rest are Target brand Printed Paper Tape.
