A little bit of everything…

I’m pretty certain everyone has at least one roll of washi or deco tape. In case you do not, I have a previous tutorial up on how to make your own using plain old masking tape HERE

I wanted my planner spread to have more of a sea life feel to it. I have decorative edge scissors and figured I’d give this idea a try.

I cut a bit of my dark blue washi tape and applied it to some waxed paper. I used my fancy schmancy edged scissors to cut the tape and waxed paper. I peeled off the tape after cutting and stuck it into my planner. Ta Da! I’m looking forward to using this method to decorate more planner spreads in the future.

Have you done this before or will you be trying this in the future?

Take care and be well.

I collect things. Odds and ends. Bits and bobbles. Ephemera. Miscellaneous things that catch my eye for one reason or another. I’ve found that keeping them in a bag makes keeping tabs on them a lot easier. Also, I think my partner in residence would agree it keeps things neater. Granted I still find ways to clutter up the clean. It’s a gift.

Tea tag tabs!

I enjoy sipping tea. It is liquid comfort in a cup. My addiction can be blamed on my father and grandmother. I can’t remember a visit with my Nani without my Papa bringing her a mug full of hot tea. Since my change in employment, I find myself digging in my tea stash for the perfect blend to match my mood. I keep some of my tea tags. I sometimes stick them in my journal but lately I was fubbling with a few ideas and this one seemed so obvious but I had never done it before nor have I seen evidence of it being used by others. I give you TEA TAG TABS!

Tea tag tabs!

I dug out a few tea tags from my bag of goodies. Tazo tea tags are particularly lovely. The Bigelow are colorful and very nice also. Occasionally I’ll sip tea with my China Buffet meals. Who doesn’t love dragons?

Tea tag tabs!

Some notebooks need tabs. Everything books definitely need a way to flip to desired sections or pages. Some planners also benefit from tabs. Labeling tabs isn’t always necessary but I can see a nice Dymo label stuck to these colorful tabs if needed. Color coding would be possible too. Green mint for Finances, Passion Purple for Projects, etc…

TEA TAG TABS! Will you use this idea? What will you be gluing tea tag tabs into? I’d love to hear your ideas – feel free to comment (as always).

Be Well.


Finally. After many moons, I completed a redesign for this blog. I started when I got diysara.com and attempted to do coding but all the craziness broke my brain. This was pretty quick and easy – thank the heavens!

I love graph paper, security envelopes and hand-lettering. Welcome to the new DIYSara.com: Miscellaneous Ramblings of a DIYer!

I would love to hear your thoughts so please leave a comment.
