Invitation to Play | DIY Washi Tape Clipboard

Here I am again with another way to use washi tape to snazz up an office supply. How original right?

DIY - Snazz Up a Clipboard with Washi Tape at Callaloo Soup

I have had this mini clipboard for over five years, and it has gone through various looks. My last use for it was when I was preparing for Kieran’s arrival. Since then it has been sitting around unused, but a few months ago I tore off the previous decor (sacrilege!) and it has been on my desk holding on to important bits of paper. I decided I needed to update it a bit. I was originally going to paint it, but was too lazy, so of course using washi tape popped into my head!

So grab a plain clipboard, washi tape and scissors!

I started with the grey chevron tape that I wanted to be the centerpiece of the design

It’s a wide tape: two inches wide from (Studio Calico). If you only have the narrow tapes you can use several strips side by side to mimic this look.

Then add another motif

Then keep going like this

At this point I decided I wanted to add a pop of pink, so I went back to my stash. I’d advise just taking all your tapes out for this project. You never know where you will end up!
