Raise your hand if you love washi tape. Hello, all 1.5 million of you! I would also like to introduce myself to the club. I’m Erin, and I have more washi tape than I could ever dream of using. I’ll be headed to Michael’s to buy more on Saturday.

Now, raise your hand if you love washi tape, but don’t so much love trying to stick it in your bullet journal? First, you’re cutting it to size, and the next thing you know, you have washi tape in your hair. And of course, what washi tape did get on your page is crooked and crinkled. I understand your frustration. But, I’m here to help!
Listen read carefully.
I am going to share a washi tape hack to change all of mankind [insert evil laugh].
How to Do It
- Measure the length of where you want to put your washi tape. In my example, I’m using the edge of a page in my Leuchtturm1917.
- Now, grab your roll of washi tape. Start to unroll it, just pulling a little off the roll to start. Then, parallelly attach half a width of it to the ruler at the zero mark. This may sound confusing. Please, reference the photo to understand my odd way of thinking. Next, roll out the washi tape just a bit beyond the length you need. Keep the whole length of the tape halfway on the ruler.
- Cut the tape to the length you need, still leaving it attached to the ruler.
- Next, you’re going to line up and place the unattached side of the washi tape to your bullet journal. [Again, for me, this was on the edge of a page. But, you could also be making a border or adding decoration on a page.] Once you have the washi tape secure on the page where you want it, carefully pull the ruler off the washi tape and secure the tape on the page.
- You should have a nice, straight, crisp strip of washi tape exactly where you want it.
