Washi tape is a fun way to make your school supplies unique and reflect your own personality. Which is exactly what I wanted my kids to do. It’s a great perk of homeschooling, getting to be unique and embrace their personality. Washi tape school supplies are just one way to do that.

Washi isn’t really all the expensive. I have seen it at the dollar store before, though do you think I could find it there when I actually wanted to buy lots of it? No. But that just seems to be the way things go though I guess.
School Supplies you can Washi Tape
I sat down and made a list of the school supplies that we could personalize with washi tape. I’m sure this list could go on and on, but you get the idea.
- glue sticks
- tablet charger
- binder clips
- paperclips – use to make inexpensive bookmarks
- phone/tablet case
On the first day of school, I thought it might be a good idea to just give them their new composition notebooks and a pile of washi tape, and let them make their notebooks their own. We lucked out that I found some space tape and my oldest was super eager to use that one on her space notebook.
How I like using Washi tape
I like using my Washi tape in my Happy Planner. It’s a fun, easy, way to add a splash of color to my pages. Plus, honestly, it is cheaper than buying Happy Planner stickers which can get pricey.
The paper clip (shown below) is the easiest, most inexpensive bookmark I have ever made. Because it is a paper clip, it’s not sliding off the page losing my spot which drives me crazy. My kids didn’t make any, probably too practical for them, so I think I’ll be making a few more for their books, both homeschool books, and their casual, relaxed reading books.
With my kids having decorated their notebooks, it is super easy to tell which one belongs to who. Their personalities literally shine off them with the shiny, and glitter tape that some of them used.
