10 creative washi tape ideas for your workspace

The uses for washi tape are pretty much endless. From embellishing stationery to getting organised, washi tape has become a workspace essential.

Although we're well on our way to the colder months, September is the perfect time to freshen up your workspace.

I can imagine that it's unsurprising that I used to get giddy thinking about 'back to school' stationery shopping. Picking up a new planner and arming yourself with a plethora of pretty pens is a heartwarming thing for us stationery fans. The rainbow of patterns and prints can breathe new life into old paper favourites, which makes washi tape a super affordable stationery treat.
