Washi Tape is one my new loves. It is easy and fun to work with and perfect for many different projects. Here are links to some I have done in the past. Washi Tape & Christmas Countdown 21 days left!
But with all new additions to your craft room the big question is how and where do
you store it. Since I am a visual learner and organizer I like items that are all the
same size to be stored neatly in rows if possible. I have seen on Pinterest several
different ways to store Washi tape everything from the rolls on dowel rods to pretty jars.
I started to put mine in a pretty box inside the cabinet but then it struck me that the
tapes themselves were too pretty to store in a box. Also, I wasn’t sure where I
would put said box since my cabinets are bursting at the seams. (Maybe it is time
to purge some items – is there ever a time to get rid of craft items, you might need
it soon). So here is my solution:
I had the mug tree stuffed in the back of my kitchen cabinets. You never know
when they might come back in style or you may need it for a completely different
purpose. Boy, I was glad I kept that tree mug. The tapes fit nicely on each of the
branches and I can group them by color or sets.
When things are out and organized in an attractive way I am much more likely to
use them. I know I can’t have everything out in plain sight but it is nice to have a
few inspirational pieces to stir those creative juices.
So if you are looking for a unique way to display your items, start by digging in the
back of your kitchen cabinets. Who knows what treasures you will find.
