Washi tape lasts a long time but that doesn’t mean you should let it sit there gathering dust! Here are 10 functional ways to use washi tape in your planner.
Functional Ways to Use Washi Tape
1. Adding durability
Especially if you use 3 ring, discbound or any other punched inserts where you’re take the pages in and out all the time.
2. Adding printables
If you’re tired of ruling up the same spreads in your bullet journal a printable can save a ton of time. Rather than gluing into your planner you could use washi tape to adhere.
If you still want to write on the page underneath only tape one side to create a ‘flap’. Since washi tape can be peeled and re-stuck when you’re finished with the page you can peel off and throw away i.e. don’t waste pages in the notebook.

Not all dot grid notebooks have the same number of dots. And when you want the same number of dots for each day you may end up with an awkward space at the top and bottom. The perfect spot for some washi tape!
It’s also good for covering up stuff you don’t need. In this case it was timeslots (hourly planners don’t work for me):
Separate weeks, months for future logs, columns for lists etc.
