Make your new teacher a special gift she or he can use in the classroom — out of washi tape or duct tape.
I LOVE duct tape and washi tape. So do my kids.
We found that even us not-so-crafty types can follow directions like nobody’s business.

Duct Tape Craft Books
and Totally Washi! by Ashley Ann Laz. (affiliate link)
I have the pages tabbed with all the projects we still want to do. In the meantime, I thought you might want ideas you could use to make gifts for your teachers.
1. Duct Tape Flower Pencil Toppers
This is the only craft that isn’t self-explanatory. Buy the Duct Tape book or watch this how-to video to learn how to make them.
2. Duct Tape or Washi Tape Clipboards
Cover your old clipboards with tape. Lovely!
3. Washi Tape or Duct Tape Composition Notebook Covers
We recommend finding opaque washi tape or using duct tape for this project so the black and white composition notebook colors don’t show through.
4. Washi Tape Keyboard Decoration
My kids thought this was the most scandalous fun ever. Mom letting us decorate her keyboard!? Whoa.
5. Washi Tape Pencils
Start rolling down those pencils in diagonals. Cut at the top and bottom for the eraser and lead.
And that, my friends, is that.
But there’s more in the books such as washi pencil holder boxes and duct tape book jackets. Check them out if this seems up your alley.
