51 Washi Tape File Labels
I have found it around the www. and on Etsy, and even recently spotted some at Target!
Four rolls for $4. Sweet!
If you check out Pinterest, you can find 1001 ways to use Washi tape. So, this little idea of mine is probably out there 24 other times, but I was so excited I couldn't resist sharing.
Labels. Washi tape makes great labels.
I discovered this the other day when looking at a jumbled pile of manila folders that I was using for a few miscellaneous blog and contributor projects. I have been taking on so many different tasks that I have been keeping details for each in unlabeled folders, and it was getting out of control.
I could have just whipped out my handy label maker or printed out some pretty options from my computer, you know I am a sucker for pretty file labels... But I wanted something quick, funky and easy to change in the future since the projects I am working on seem to shift at the drop of a hat.
Washi tape. So simple! I just put some over the manila folder file tab and trimmed off the excess edges with a small pair of scissors.
Fab right? And my trusted black Sharpie pen finished it off!
And as I mentioned, my favorite part of it all, is I can swap out the labels quickly and easily and no mess is left behind!
Happy to have made this little discovery. I have a feeling the ol' tape is going to start getting a lot more use around the Jones abode. Label happy mama right here.
What is your favorite use for Washi tape?
