Washi Tape Crayon Box Tutorial
What you need:
$1.99 paper crayon box from Michael’s
Downtown Tape Washi Tape of your choices
I decided to use the most “boyish” washi tape to create diagonal stripes across the top and then vertical stripes around all the sides.
I started in the middle of the lid and placed the tape diagonal and then just started a pattern across the lid.
I decided to leave some white on the sides just to mix it up a little bit…
Then I worked my way down the sides trimming off the excess tape as I went.
The whole thing took about 10 minutes and took very little washi tape, since the rolls are so big! They’ll definitely last a long time!
And there’s the finished product…an easy way to spruce something up quickly and the best part is that if you change your mind and want to do something different, you can just peel the tape off and start over! 🙂
