DIY Washi Storage Solution!

Hi friends! Show of hands, how many of you hoard your washi tape? Well, don’t worry, today’s project will not only help you store it but use it too!


My precious (said in best Sméagol voice) washi tapes are showcased in all their beauty and are ready to use at a moments notice. I am using the brand new washi tape from Papermart today, it is only $1.34 for 10 yards so you don’t have to hoard it (OK, buy two rolls of each design and hoard one if you must.) This project is great for me because I also hoard boxes…anyone else? Watch the video and see how it’s done!

You can also use this idea to make divided boxes for other arts and craft supplies like beads, pencils, markers or embellishments. You can make it match your style and personality!


You will need:
A shallow cardboard box
Washi Tape
Measuring tape trim or Lace trim
Scrapbook paper (I used the Shimelle line from American Crafts)
Alphabet stamps and ink if desired

Cover all sides of the box with scrapbook paper. Cut a piece of paper the same width of your box but 3″ longer. Fold up a section to make a divider so your tape can be held snug in the box. Add a label on the top or side of your box so you will always know what is inside!


If you like this idea be sure to pin it for later and share it with your friends (there are handy buttons below for sharing!) Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Excellent idea. Thanks for sharing it.


  2. wow, this is fab, but can you imagine the box i would need for 500 rolls? I have them in shoe boxes based on color, that is the best i can with my crafting space.


  3. Love this, on my way to my craft tablt to make this with an old cigar box!


  4. This reminds me of the root for our crafting! Not buying a pretty box but cover it up with pretty papers we all hoard! I should put those washi tapes in to a small container, too, rather than let them roll in my desk drawer… haha… luv it, Lindsay! 🙂


  5. I too hoard boxes. I love boxes! As far back as I can remember, I’ve loved boxes. Speaking of boxes, have you found a use for the Dunkin’ Donuts box yet?


  6. I too am a box hoarder, I have tons of boxes just like the one you used, YeeeeHaaaw! great idea for little gifts instead of Christmas Stocking. Girly Girl, for hair bows, ties etc.


  7. You can purchase WOODEN cigar boxes from almost any cigar store. They’re great! I’d suggest running a short vertical strip of each Washi Tape along the front edge of the box. That way you can tell at a glance exactly what ones are stored in each box.


  8. Box hoarder from way back….{she said, index finger in air and head hanging sheepishly}


  9. Such a great idea! Thank you, been saving those boxes, now I know what I’m doing with one of them!!
