Make your own cool desk accessories using your favorite decorative tapes and a little creativity! This is SO easy; anyone can do it.
It’s been that way since I was young! Speaking of being young, I’m going to show you how to personalize school supplies, and it’s a great kids’ craft.
I personally don’t want to pay a fortune for any of this stuff, so I have a secret – I buy plain surfaces and embellish them the way I like. This year I did it with Scotch Expressions Tapes.
And because they are awesome, Scotch Expressions Tapes are available in over 100 colors and patterns and four varieties—Magic Tape, masking tape, washi tape and shipping tape.
My favorite project of all of the personalized school supplies has to be the Dimensional Magic scissors. So that’s the first thing I’m going to show you how to make, but I’ll also show you the other projects I made as well.
Cool Desk Accessories
Gather These Supplies
- Desk accessories and goodies – magazine holder, pencil holder, paper box, binder clips, scissors, dry erase board or whatever else you’d like to decorate with your tapes (they pretty much stick to anything!)
- Scotch Expressions Tapes in your choice of colors/patterns
- Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
- Craft knife
- Craft glue
I had no idea if the tape would stick to the binder clips – it did! The Expressions Tapes stuck to pretty much everything that I put them on. It was so fun!
My final project was to decorate the boring extra dry erase/magnet board that I had laying around. I think I know why I like the colors of the tape so much. Check out my pants and toenail color in the edge of the picture (I’m so predictable!).
Here are images of the cool desk accessories in their native environment:
