I recently "discovered" washi tape- oh I knew it was out there but I didn't see a reason to purchase some until I happened upon the My documented life project https://www.facebook.com/groups/thedocumentedlifeproject/1402788223305683/?notif_t=group_comment_reply

I really loved the idea of a journal, planner and art journal in one- So I went out and purchased a few rolls- Washi tape apparently is just like chips you can't have just one, lol. So one online shopping excursion later I needed a place to store my tapes- and being the treasure to trash queen of craftster I just had to re-purpose something to suit my needs-

so, one foil box, top remove, I made a lid from the top of a pizza box-to keep the tapes dust free when not in use- using cardboard from food boxes and a metal rod saved from a pendant lamp that was living in my stash for at least 8 years looking for a purpose (you could just as easily use a wooden dowel, a cut, down broom or mop handle) became the spool holder.- I cut up a milk carton to create the plastic tabs for the ends of the tape- I hate struggling with trying to locate tape ends and this makes it incredible easy to use the tape-







*Tip- because the foil box has a metallic foil finish I knew I would not be able to easily paint it-so I dug through the old tool box for a roll of regular masking tape and covered the entire box with the tape- It gave me the perfect paintable surface- I painted it black, used a white gel pen and just doodled away and added a bit more color with some teal dots-I painted the inside of the box teal as well

What a great idea. I may or may not have just purchased a large set of washi tape. What a timely post! Thanks for the inspiration.

This is fabulous - I've tried a mug tree and an upright paper towel holder so this looks way better than my method.

Thanks for sharing!

Fantastic idea! I need one of these. I have all of my washi stacked up and they are always falling over and rolling around my desk.

Fabulous!  I have amassed quite a collection of washi tape recently and it's all just piled up on my desk!  I will have to remember to save the next foil box
