DIY Washi Tape Bookmarks

May 20, 2015

Your new favourite read deserves better than a lollipop stick, old receipt or crumpled train ticket. Luckily, with the help of our favourite crafty supply, washi tape,  you can whip up a colourful bookmark for every book in your library. How cool is that?

These DIY washi tape bookmarks are super easy to make and only take a couple of minutes. Whether you fawn over florals, go dotty for polka dots or love a clean-cut geometric design, you can make these DIY bookmarks reflect your own personal style.

Also, if you’re planning to give a book as a gift, a little personalised bookmark would make a pretty sweet addition, don’t ya think?

The washi tapes that we used to make bookmarks are all from masté washi masking tape.

Here are the designs: baby panda, jungle, goldfish and mushroom

Now...let's make some bookmarks!


  • washi tape

  • white / coloured card
  • ruler

Generally, most patterned washi tapes show up best on white card but that’s no rule. If you want to go neon, go for it.Decorate.

Now’s the time to whip out the washi tape collection and decorate to your heart’s content. Try layering, diagonal stripes and cut-outs to make some super cute washi tape bookmarks in a flash.
