8 Reasons to Start a Washi Tape Gratitude Journal


I’ve decided to go for a short and simple washi tape gratitude journal instead of preparing some sort of personal journal.

8 reasons to start your washi tape gratitude journal

This is because…


Our washi tape collection is growing.  We aim to use them all… well, at least open the packages and try out all the types.



The notebook you see here is a used one.  It still has many left-over pages.  So, why not continue using it?  Plus, the paper is thin enough to let your washi tape stash shine through.



One to four different kinds of decorative tapes will be featured on one page.  Not only will you be able to make use of them, but you also get to see which one you have.  Another way to catalog them!



You can design however way you wish.  You can match the tapes by color or by theme.  Or, just mix and match them.  You might encounter some marvelous combinations.



Some pictures from washi tapes can be cut out and used as stickers.   Or, use other embellishments to jazz up the page even more.



This easy washi tape gratitude journal can be applied as a guidebook before moving on to bigger projects like card making and scrapbooking, especially if you are new to crafting.



You can also test the adhesive for the tapes.  Those that I tried so far stick pretty well on paper like this.



I personally experienced some really good outcomes by writing a daily gratitude journal.  It somehow shifted the way I think, for example, being a more happy and positive person.  But I kind of stopped writing when other things happened in life.  Thus, why not continue doing this and combining it with washi tapes?


You can write and journal or simply add some inspiring pictures in the notebook.

As such, my journal is a mixture of quotes in English and/or Chinese, affirmations, and pictures.

However, the details of the brands and deco tapes will not be covered in such posts as they will be mentioned in other articles.

You can purchase some of the masking tapes showcased in this journal from our web store (paused for now, but you can still get them through my affiliate links).

Some are just our own collection.  We will post the links in the articles if relevant.  Therefore, do come back and find out!
