I love rainbows. I also love stationery. So I guess it's not surprising that I own quite a bit of rainbow stationery. I think rainbows are wonderfully cheerful and eyecatching, and they have lovely symbolism-I always associate them with positivity. Plus I just love colour, and putting colours together. The way that all the colours of the rainbow somehow manage to both contrast and complement is endlessly fascinating to me.
When Tiger stocked a little cloud shaped tape dispenser with rainbow tape a few months ago, I just couldn't resist. It's cute, kitschy, and looks pretty as well as being functional. I like to use the tape to decorate parcels, it just adds an extra touch of whimsy. I was also drawn to some rainbow coloured arrow print washi tape from Pink Planner Girl, which I'll be using in my planner. I think it's gorgeous, and a little more subtle than most of my rainbow hued items.
Another purchase from Pink Planner Girl was a set of rainbow heart stickers. They look so pretty in their colour coordinated diagonals that it almost seems a shame to use them. Muji's origami paper has been a favourite of mine for years, and I used to spend hours making paper cranes in every hue imaginable. Sometimes I flick through a pack just to see all the lovely colours.
There's something especially pleasing about a pack of rainbow coloured pens, arranged in order.
