Bookish Washi Tape For Your Bullet Journal + Beyond

Washi tape is the best. It’s a decorative tape perfect for art projects, for collaging, and, in the last decade especially, for bullet journaling and planner personalization. There are so many different designs for it, including bookish washi tape perfect for readers.

Washi is a Japanese creation, made not with tree pulp but from Japanese shrubs. It’s durable, sustainable, and affordable: a nice little “treat yourself” present when you want to bring something bright and fun into your life.
