Downtown Tape Giveaway!–Giveaway closed

Are you guys washi tape veterans or newbies, like me? While I’m relatively new to playing with washi tape, I’m definitely aware of all the fabulous things you can do with it! Washi tape is the new blogging sensation and everyone is looking for the next best thing to decorate with it!

Enter Downtown Tape…they provide AMAZING washi tape choices for a great price of just$1.99 per roll!

They were nice enough to provide us with some of their washi tape choices to show you just one of hundreds of things you can use washi tape for…so here’s our tutorial on how to spruce up a plain box to store your kids crayons and art supplies in and to show you just how EASY it is to work with washi tape and make something plain into something creative!

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! ๐Ÿ™‚
