Organize and store your washi tape with a Washi Tape Hanger. This organizer is easy and very cheap to make using items you probably already have.
I have recently become obsessed with Washi Tape and I can’t get enough of it. The other day at work I washi’d several thing on my desk.
Then I came home and washi’d the letter A for my daughter Allie.
But now that I have all of this wonderful washi tape the question came up of how do I store it?
I did a search on Pinterest and found lots of fun ideas but they all included finding that perfect container that they would fit in , and honestly I didn’t want to go to every store looking for that perfect container. That is when I remembered what my friend Amy from The Happy Scraps did. She roomed with me at SNAP! and brought all of her washi on a cool little washi tape hanger that she made herself! She is such a smartie!
So I wanted to make me one too and it was really quite simple. The supplies you will need are:
a heavier piece of card stock
paper punch (optional)
I used a 2 3/8 scallop punch on the heavier card stock, but it really doesn’t matter what punch or you could even freehand a circle. You just want it to be a little bit bigger then the washi tape because this is going to be the base.
Put a hole in the center of shape. I used a hole punch and then made the hole just a touch bigger by putting an embossing tool in the hole and twisted it and pushed it through just a little. As you can see the hole is only a little bit bigger. The hole needs to be a touch bigger for the ribbon that I chose.
Cut a 16-inch piece of gross grain ribbon and tied a knot on the bottom.
Thread the ribbon through the hole and trim the edges of the knot and that is all there is to it! pull the loop of the ribbon through the center of your washi tapes and the are ready to hang!
What I love most about this is it is easy to grab and bring to a different room and it can hand from just about anything!
