Washi Tape Back to School Ideas

Every now and then I get the urge to do a fun lunchbox for the kids, maybe once a term or so. Here's one I made for Valentines Day last year, and one I made for Easter

So with all this talk of washi tape I thought I'd have some fun and make a washi tape lunchbox, especially as Amelie and Stella have become nearly as obsessed with washi tape as I am! So using my Scotch® washi tape, masking tape and magic tape I made a lunch box up so you can get some ideas if you want to have some fun yourself. 

Here are the details
*meusli bar with masking tape and a message on it
*box of raisins covered in washi tape
*banana with washi tape and name on it
*pieces of fresh pineapple
* cheese cubes and crackers with a washi tape flag toothpick for the cubes
* sandwich wrapped in greaseproof paper with washi tape wrapped around it (had to use sellotape at the back of this though as the washi tape doesn't actually stick to the greaseproof paper!)
*spooon decorated with magic tape

I also used the magic tape to label her drink bottle and a packet of tissues. Because the magic tape is like a matte sellotape it will hold up better in the dishwasher than washi tape, so it's great for labelling anything for back to school e.g lunchboxes, drink bottles, containers, and any stationery items your child brings to school as well.

I also used some of the Scotch® Shipping Tape and the magic tape to cover a school book - so easy and you could get really creative using all the different tapes to cover school books. Older children could even do this themselves and then match up the tapes to their stationery labels as well. The shipping tape is perfect for this as it is waterproof and really durable, and comes in heaps of cool colours and patterns.

So there you go, a few ideas for using the Scotch® decorative tapes for your 'back to school' jobs. You can find them all at Warehouse Stationery or online with Fishpond- they have heaps of new Scotch® tapes on there- I am loving this Alphabet one!
