Washi Tape Week: Storage + Fabric

We are so excited to dedicate this entire week to WASHI TAPE. We love it, you love it, everyone loves it. And if you're anything like us, then you cannot get enough of it...can you? We hope to inspire you to pull out this new favorite obsession for many of us and get crafty.

Washi Tape Storage
by Wendy Sue Anderson

Designer Note: I thought it would be fun to show you how I store my doodlebug washi tape.  I have a ribbon carousel (http://ribboncarousel.com/) that was designed to hold spools of ribbon.  I have plenty of ribbon, but I don't use it as much as I find myself using washi tape (and baker's twine) these days.  So I moved my ribbon to another spot and put all of my fun, bright, colorful doodlebug washi tape and doodle twine on the carousel.  It's easy to see all of my options at a glance without having to dig through a basket or bin.  I also love that I can just tear off however much I need without having to remove the spool from it's storage container.  Not only is it super functional, it looks so fun sitting on my work desk and it makes me happy every time I see it!

  13. I love that idea for the Ribbon Carousel. I have been using an embroidery hoop but the Washi Tape flops all over and is hard to use.

  19. Very cool ideas! I just recently put all my doodlebug tape together in an old fashioned straw dispenser, but I've already filled it so it's time to start scouting yard sales looking for more. :)
