Tape It To The Limit: DIY This Washi Journal

Designlovefest was created in 2009 out of Bri Emery's own obsession with type and images. DLF rapidly became a daily read for over forty thousand people, thanks to Bri’s exquisitely curated layouts featuring bright colors and style, mixed with witty typography and a flair for the unexpected.
We could easily waste entire days on Pinterest browsing the endless stream of inspiring DIYs. But the reality is there are just too many projects and too little time. That's where designlovefest comes in. The charmingly curated blog started by Bri Emery captures everything we love about a fun, at-home project: color, quirk, and usability. Basically, we want to make each and every one. So, each week we'll be sharing the blog's easy instructions for projects that are both adorable and useful. Trust — you'll feel like a crafting goddess in no time!
What You'll Need:
• Moleskine journals with kraft covers (any notebook with a smooth paper like cover will work)
• Washi tape
• Gold foil tape (available at art and hobby stores)
• Scissors
• Simply run tape at an angle across cover. Leave yourself 1/4 inch of tape along the edges so that you can secure it on the inside of the cover. It’s easiest to run your first tape somewhere across the middle of the notebook.
Designlovefest is a multiple contributor design, fashion, and lifestyle blog headed by Bri Emery. It's a place where type and images totally make out.
