It’s my turn to pick the pre-order washi tape kits!  (Jenn and I agreed to taking turns although we both could sit for hours and drool over them all!)

Thinking ahead, I thought it appropriate to start looking towards Fall.  (It also gives me a nice break from this heat!)  I just adore Fall colors like deep reds, dark oranges, forest greens, and warm yellows.

Fall Washi Tape Kit

This kit of Fall washi tape is absolutely adorable!  I just can’t wait to use to decorate my planners.  Look at those colors!

My favorite is the candied apples.  How incredibly cute is that!  I envision a spread with this candied apples washi tape with red and brown stickers to complete the look.

Each week we will showcase a theme that will have 6 rolls of washi tape. Squadettes will be able to pre-order these kits and pay a low price of only $15 including shipping (international customers add $5)! This means each roll will cost an average of $2. The remaining amount will cover shipping costs.

What an awesome way to get unique and fun rolls of washi for a low price!

 Fall washi tape pre-order kit ihas 6 specially chosen Fall-themed washi tape rolls to had gorgeous colors to your planner spreads this Autumn.

How to Order

Customers must fill out the form below entirely. Please make sure you fill out every field correctly, as any forms with missing information will be declined!

We require all orders to be submitted no later than 11:59pm (EST) on Sunday July 24, 2016.

On Monday July 25, I will send an invoice to the email you provided in your order. All invoices must be paid in full no later than 11:59 (EST) on Wednesday July 27, 2016.

We will be placing a bulk order for the washi on Thursday, July 28 (or earlier if all orders have been paid prior to then). Once payments have been received, there will be no refunds.

If for some reason a roll in the kit sells out before we can order, we will order a similar style washi to put in its place.

We ask you to please allow 4-6 weeks shipping and handling time. We ask this simply because we are ordering the washi from an international supplier. This means it could take up to 4 weeks for us to receive it ourselves!

As soon as we receive the order, we will package it up all nice and pretty, and send it on its way to you!

For order updates, make sure you are a member of our facebook group. We will post all washi pre-order updates there in the group!Happy Planner

How To Make Skinny Washi Tape: A Planner Hack

Check out this DIY skinny washi tape planner hack! Super easy and quick to do. Convert your favorite washi tapes into skinny washi tapes!

Hey all you planner lovers!  How many times do you spot the most gorgeous washi tape but you wished it was skinny?  Like you fall in love with it and have so many ideas on how you can use it to adorn your planners-but it’s just a tad to wide?

My planner friends, I must tell you that I find myself in this conundrum all together too many times.  As I browse through my growing washi collection (with that big goofy smile of “Ooh!  I love all the washi in the world!”), I become inspired.

Look at those purples!  Check out this polka dot gold washi!  The gears upstairs start turning and visions of washi tape are dancing in my head.

With a child’s delight (because washi tape makes you feel young again ,right?), I carefully select my washi tape rolls based on colors, patterns, and textures.  There is nothing finer that putting together the perfect mix of washi tape with all your other planning accessories. (Please tell me that I am not the only one to get giddy when that just-so color combination  is found!)

The snafu that I run in to is when one of those washi rolls is too wide.  Sure, I have tried to cut it down but I end up botching it and ruining most of the strip of washi.

Not one to let something hold me back from finding a hack or tweak, I knew that a practical and easy solution could be found.  To my sheer joy, I found a simple answer that I hope blesses planner lovers everywhere.

Easily convert your favorite washi tape into skinny washi tape with this DIY planner hack.
Ooh! See all the pretty skinny washi tape in blue glitter! One of my favorites! (A bit crooked-my three younger boys were “helping”)

 

DIY Skinny Washi Tape With Only 2 Materials!

Yes, ma’am!  I said only 2 materials!  Oh, and a paper trimmer (or scissors if you have steady hands!).

What 2 materials am I referencing?

  1. Washi Tape
  2. Wax Paper

That’s it!  Most of us have wax paper on hand (and if you don’t, run to your local dollar store and pick up a roll for cheap).

Here is an super easy DIY planner hack to make your own skinny washi tape.

 

Make Your Own Skinny Washi Tape In These 4 Easy Steps:

You can use a ruler to measure for exact size skinny washi tape you will make with the planner hack.

1. Determine the length of strip of washi tape that you will need.

Measure the length of the planner space you wish to cover.  Or just make it as long as you like and then trim down.

Using a ruler to measure for the size strip of skinny washi tape you will need helps prevent waste. More pretty washi to go around!
Measuring side of Standard Happy Planner (weekly) to determine size of strip of skinny washi tape.

 

2.  Place strip of washi  tape on wax paper.  Smooth out if necessary.

Convert your wide washi tape into skinny washi tape with this easy DIY planner hack.
Here I converted 30mm wide washi tape into 2 skinny washi strips and 1 regular size.

 

3.  Align your strip of washi tape on your paper trimmer (or use a ruler as a guide if you are using scissors).

 

4.   Cut your strip of washi as skinny as you like.

This DIY planner hack for skinny washi tape is super easy and great way to convert your favorite washi.

 

**Tip:  You may want to try a small strip before using an entire length.  Take care with washi tape made of glitter and fabric.

Voilá!  There you have your skinny washi tape in any width you desire!
