Go bold with alternating neon colours or a mash-up of patterns. The best part? This simple design can be made with as many alternating rows of Expressions Washi Tape* and Expressions Masking Tape* as you want.


*May damage some substrates upon removal.

  • Starting from the center, place your first line (and colour) of tape. Cut a small slit in the tape with a hobby knife to make sure the clock hands have room to move. Press the tape down to remove any air bubbles.


  • Continue carefully placing each strip of tape.


  • Cover the hands of the clock with Expressions Washi Tape.


  • Trim excess tape with a hobby knife and gently press the surface smooth.


  • EXPERT TIP: Create consistent spacing by applying an extra strip of tape between colour groupings. You can remove this measuring guide later.
