Today I received a couple of boxes in the mail! It seems like every other day I'm doing a haul list! I'm really bad, and it's getting worse.
I purchased a four tier trouser hanger months ago to store my ribbon. It's served dutifully for several months and keeps my ribbon storage nice and neat. But I ran out of room on my ribbon storage for any Washi tape. I'm rather particular about keeping collections together, so I kept my Washi tape in a drawer after it threatened to take over the ribbon storage.
And voila! I purchased another hanger to act as storage for my Washi. Yes - more Washi Storage ideas. Though this one isn't new and has been seen a few times around on the net, including the storage idea using an empty box of Glad Press'n'Seal, which has a core roll. That idea was functional, but I just didn't have the cabinet/counter space for it in my tiny craft room.
Storage has to go vertical in tiny craft rooms, so I went up! This trouser hanger has arms that fold out to allow you to hang pants on - but used it for washi tape storage instead. It's hanging from a doubled over piece of twine, near the screw/posts for the curtain railing (the strongest part of the curtain rod) This isn't a long term storage area, but suits for my small space which I should be moving out of soon if all goes well.
This storage mimics my ribbon storage, and keeps my Washi tape out in the open instead of trapped in a container. I'm a rather visual person and if I see something more, then I tend to use it more.
I wish I could do anything and everything with Washi! I'll end up taking a few rolls to work and decorating some folders or notebooks - so I can easily tell them apart. Perhaps I should start labelling everything around the house by hand using washi tape for a burst of personality.
Are you obsessed with Washi as much as I am? Link me to your pics of washi tape or your washi tape storage ideas!
