I got this paint pot style pen pot from the local stationers today. But it wasn't a very nice patterned one. It was $2.50 and I thought that covering it in my newly purchased washi tape would be perfect.
Because the pattern was such a strong colour, I stuck the washi tape onto white paper first. I then glued it onto the side of the pot. I'm so happy how it came out compared to the original pattern. Sorry, people who love a vintage pattern but I prefer bright geometric shapes than floral symbols. Sorry!!!
It looks so different and perfect for my pen cup by my bed. You never know when inspiration might strike!!
