I think the only reason I looked forward to a new school year was because I could go get new notebooks and pens and if I was really lucky, a new lunchbox (who am I kidding, I brown bagged it!). ANYWAY! I still slightly obsess over the deas I get this time of year. 17¢ notebooks? Sign me up! 50¢ crayola crayons? Yep I’m stocked. Pretty much any random office supply you can think of is probably on sale is some pretty awesome neon or gold color. And let’s be honest here… this is my life when it comes to stationery.

But sometimes I find the standard yellow pencils to be a bit ho-hum. So it’s time to break out the Washi Tape! I found this fabric tape at the Japanese store Daiso for ridiculously cheap (everything is $1.50!) and I love the grip it gives me on my pencils! And just to note, the tape (whether fabric or regular) doesn’t interfere with regular sharpening.

1. Measure and cut a strip of Washi tape the length of your pencil. The fabric tape has an adhesive backing strip so I was able to cut 2 pieces once I measured the first.

2. Adhere the washi tape to your pencil and carefully spread it. Firmly press down to make sure there are no air bubbles. One pencil takes two strips.
