Washi Tape is one of the greatest crafting inventions since scissors! At least that is my humble opinion!! Now, if you aren't familiar with Washi Tape…let me give you a little lesson. Washi is a style of Japanese paper tape. The whole thing started back in 2006 and has spread around the world like wildfire! Originally the tape was all made in Japan, but it is now manufactured all over the world.
The great thing about Washi Tape is that it is so versatile! The adhesive is sticky, but not too sticky and can be repositioned and even reused. It is easy to tear and you can even write on it. If you want to read an in-depth article about all things Washi…go HERE.
Here are some pictures of some adorable Washi Tapes you can get at Joann Stores. There is no end to the cute designs and colors of the tape!
So, as I started collecting this wonderful creation….I started thinking that I needed a great way to store it! I started looking for a great Washi Tape Organizer. I looked and looked and saw lots of great ideas, but nothing that really seemed to fit what I had in mind!
I finally saw something interesting over at Kendra's blog, Simply Darrling. She started using a mug rack for her Washi storage. It got me thinking….I really liked the idea, but knowing how much Washi Tape I planned to eventually own…I knew it would be too small!
I am very fortunate to have a dad that is handy! I asked if he could make me a Washi Tape Organizer for Christmas. I think he did a great job
This is a nice big Washi Tape Organizer and someday it will be completely full of hundreds of rolls of Washi Tape! 🙂 (yes…I have some addiction problems when it comes to craft supplies) The great thing about this holder is that I can always repaint it if I want to change it up…I could even go crazy and put Washi Tape on it!!
There are now Washi Tape with a chevron edge! You can even buy a tube of all kinds of scalloped edge Washi Tapes! So many choices…if only I had more disposable cash!! 😀
I am curious…do you use Washi Tape? If so, do you have any kind of Washi Tape Organizer?
