Back to School Hop at Embellish Me Happy

Thank you so much for joining our first ever back to school blog hop on Embellish Me Happy. My name is Mandi Holmes and I am a DT member on EMH. You just left Erica Rose Creates blog and wow was that challenge great! If you for any reason arrived on this site from anywhere else other than the blog listed above please click the link and start from the beginning. There you will be starting the blog hop from the beginning.
Here are a few rules for this blog hop this month:
The hop will run from August 13th - September 8th. You will upload your creations for my challenge on the Embellish Me Happy Blog Via In Linkz and name your challenge back to school Washi Tape( then the name of the challenge your hosting)
Please make sure your creation is uploaded by September 8th 12am EST.
All creations must be new and not be combined with any other challenges.
Please make sure you adhere to all the rules of this challenge, the general hop rules and the challenge rules.
You may participate in all challenges for the hop; you will get one entry point per challenge entered during the hop.

Now here is the fun part the challenge: Use washi tape on your school themed project.
I used it on pencils and the matching notebooks. Since the tape is so thin you can don't have to remove it from the pencils to sharpen them.
I covered a composition notebook with shipping paper and decorated with 6x6 papers.
Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio), paper (shipping paper), pattern paper (Crate Paper), washi tape ( Queen & Co. and 7 Gypsies), stickers (Echo Park), brad (Crate Paper), twine (Timeless Twine), pencils, eyelet and doily.
Here is a close-up of the layers.
I even covered the back. 
I also decorated a mini notebook. I added a piece of elastic on the spine to hold the pencil. 
Supplies: shipping paper , pattern paper (Fancy Pants), washi tape (Studio 112), stickers (Fancy PAnts Designs, Echo Park, Bo Bunny and Carta Bella),  doily and pencil. 
Here is another close-up. I fussy cute the butterflies from the Bo Bunny stickers. 

Here is the back.

As you can see washi tape is easy to use and can be used on a lot o different things.
Now that you have the challenge from my blog please head on over to Toccara
