1. Washi Words: Cover chipboard with tape for a quick makeover.

2. Washi Stickers: Layer overlapping strips of tape on wax paper, cut out your shape, and peel and stick it to your page. Add pen stitching using a permanent marker for a quick finishing touch.

3. Washi Corners: Cut a square piece of tape in half on the diagonal for quick photo corners. Layer with a second piece for a little extra oomph.

4. Washi Grid: Before assembling your layout, adhere thin strips of tape to your background as a mask to use with your spray ink or paint.

5. Washi Frame: Make one of your photos stand out with strips of tape. Try several different colors for a more colorful look.

6. Washi Pocket: Line the top, inside area of a bitty bag with tape for a quick pocket to contain your journaling.

7. Washi Border: Adhere small strips of tape to the outer edge of your layout for a fast and fresh border design.

8. Washi Embellishments: Give any of your small accents like buttons and bitty clothespins a new look with a strip of tape.

9. Washi Flags: Thread small strips of tape through paper clips for festive and fast flags.

10. Washi Pumpkin: Pleat decorative tape and adhere it to a paper base to create a pleated pumpkin. Do small strips at a time to avoid tape sticking to itself, and just pick up where you left off until your pleating is complete.
