Hello gorgeous people! Are you getting ready to send your kids back to school or perhaps going back to school yourself? It’s always nice to start off the year with beautiful stationery and supplies.

I’m using a hexagon shape paper punch but circles, squares or rectangles would also work well.

Use cardstock that is at least 120gsm.

Try using different types of washi. The ones pictured here are glitter tape.

Step 1

Hole punched hexagon shapes for washi tape tabs

First, punch as many shapes as you need for your book plus one or 2 extra (just in case).

Step 2

Begin by adding the pink skinny glitter tape to one edge of your punched shape, press down firmly.

Step 3

Washi tape tabs - first step

Add the thicker gold tape making sure it’s right up against the first piece - you don’t want any gaps.

Step 4

If there is any card still exposed, cover it with the pink skinny deco tape.

Step 5

Washi tape tabs cut excess washi to shape

Trim any excess tape from the cardboard shape.

Step 6

Attach double-sided tape to the back of the punched shape - make sure you only add it to the lower half of the shape (the bit that will be stuck to the page).

Step 7
