If you’re into bullet journaling, or use some other planner to organize your life, you probably have some washi tape collection by your side.
(and if not, I’m warning you – this can get addictive! 😀 )
As you very well know, washi tapes are an easy and quick way to add a pretty look to your planner, but they can also be used for organizing your tasks (see my color coding blog post for more about this topic), or even for covering up some mistakes that you made (if you’re using a planner long enough, you can certainly relate to this!).
If you’re like me and have a *slightly* larger amount of washi tapes, you might want to create a bullet journal collection page (or pages) dedicated to them.
Well, first of all – they’re fun and cute to have (because who doesn’t like a colorful page every now and then, right?! 😉 ), and secondly, this way you can easily see your beautiful washi tape patterns and easily choose the one you wish to use in a certain moment and place.
And even if you currently don’t have many washi tapes in your possession, this post can still give you some ideas that you can try out in the future.
Take a peek at my bujo and see some inspiring ways how you can make washi tape collection pages in your bullet journal.
Washi tape collection page – “The Princess and the Pea”
At first, I thought to create a collection page with a patched bedspread as a motif, but then it somehow seemed too complex (you see, I didn’t want to place the pieces of washi tapes in a regular grid format), so I ruled out this option.
My mind then thought – while we’re on the subject (bed and sleeping, right?), why not do the Princess and the pea (the fact that I work from home with kids probably didn’t have an impact on this decision! 😉 ), so that’s exactly what I did.
Result shown below!
Washi tape jars
I think I’m telling the truth when I say that jars are a popular theme in the bullet journal world.
They can be used for many different collection pages, for example – savings jar (the most common one), mood tracker jar (yup, I have one on the list, too 😉 ), as decorative doodles, as a background for your gratitude log, or anything else that might come to your mind. Maybe you already have some of these in your bullet journal (and if not, you can always visit Pinterest to feast your eyes 😉 ).
Anyway, I’ve made a jars washi tape collection page and you can see the result right here.
My personal favorite is the “jam” and “honey” jar (the first and the third jar in the first row from the left, I guess you understand why I named them that way). Which one is your favorite?
Ok, this might not exactly be a washi world, washi town should be a more appropriate name, but it sounds more dramatic this way! 😀
You see, I had a certain number of grayish washi tapes, which I wanted to place together on one page, and I was thinking about making the page monochrome, as opposed to all the other washi tape collection pages I’ll have in a bullet journal.
The idea about the town, windows, and curtains showed up and it seemed like a perfect fit.
Washi tape collection – brushes everywhere
My washi tape brushes collection page comes next as the complete opposite to the previous one – in terms of color, at least.
Apart from liking the way how the page turned out in the end, what I really love about this collection is that the majority of these washi tapes were a present to me from my young daughter (she knows about this weak spot of mine and likes to surprise me from time to time), which makes it even more special 🥰.
Washi tape presents
I have to be honest, this is not a page I’m proud of (clearly I haven’t cut the washi tape even for the first gift), but the idea is good and it’s definitely worth a try.
What else I could do with Christmas and Easter washi tapes than this, right?
Washi tape pencils
On the other hand, this collection page I really like. 🙂
Since you’re also into planners and journals (otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this, right?), I believe you have the same feeling about this, too.
(and if by some strange chance you’re not using a planner or a bullet journal yet but are interested in giving it a go, then have a look at these posts – bullet journal for beginners and how to choose the perfect planner)
Washi tape rainbow cloud
Alright, true… not an inventive one that’s certain, but I simply could not resist it – especially when it occurred to me that I have all the colors of the rainbow! Plus, kawaii drawings are just too cute to be ignored.
My last washi tape collection page is a gallery wall with a plant in front.
What inspired this idea?
Well, as you can see, I had a mix of different washi tapes (both in terms of color and texture), plus some amount of green ones.
After thinking long and hard (yes, believe it or not, it was a process! 😀 ), this was the best design I could come up with that, to me, seems to work the best with all the varieties available.
And that’s it – well, at least until I get some new washi tapes to have fun with! 😉
Do you have a collection page for your washi tapes, too?
