Back to school never looked so cool. Highlight top activities of the week for your classroom. Use Expressions Washi Tape* in hot neon or a fun print to decorate a weekly calendar.


*May damage some substrates upon removal.


  • With Expressions Washi Tape, create a section for each day of the week. On this blackboard, we divided it into eight areas, leaving one larger area along the bottom for notes.


  • Trim any excess tape with a hobby knife.


  • In the designated boxes, use the outer tape edge as a guide to create letters with Expressions Washi Tape. Trim excess tape as you continue around the board.


  • EXPERT TIP: For the letters, work from the outside in. Start with any edges that will align with a tape box. Connect the dots to complete the letters.
