Are you obsessed with washi tape too? I can’t get enough and I love to washi tape EVEYTHING!
What is Washi Tape?
Washi is decorative adhesive tape made with a thin Japanese paper. My favorite thing about washi tape is all of the colors and patterns it is available in!
What do you use washi tape for?
Since this is a tape, and is self-adhesive, there are so many things you can do with washi tape.
It can be used in crafting, journaling, and with stationary.
Apply it to paper to for a colorful stripe, or wrap it around a piece of wood to make a handmade piece of home decor.
While at work I washi’d my iPad keyboard, lotion containers, claw clips, and my stapler.
Where to Purchase Washi Tape?
Amazon also has a HUGE selection of colors, patterns, and widths of Washi Tape.
The price of Washi Tape really depends on who you buy it from and how many you buy, but you can find it anywhere between $.50 to $4 a roll.
Where do you Store Washi Tape?

I did a search on Pinterest and found lots of fun ideas. Everything from storage with pull out drawers and tape dispensers. But many of the store-bought options are a little pricey. I wanted something a little more DIY and cheaper.
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 had made herself!
Supplies Needed to Make a DIY Washi Tape Holder
Instructions to Make a Washi Tape Holder
Use a heavier card stock and punch a circle with a 2 3/8-inch scallop paper punch.
If you don’t have a paper punch you could easily cut a circle by hand. You just want it to be a little bit bigger than the washi tape since this will be the base.
Use a hole punch and add a hole to the center of the shape and make the hole just a tiny bigger by pushing something through the hole like a pen or an embossing tool. The hole needs to be a bit bigger for the ribbon that I chose.
Cut a 16-inch piece of gross grain ribbon and tie a knot on the bottom.
Thread the ribbon through the hole and trim the ribbon ends after the know. Pull the loop of the ribbon through the center of your washi tapes and the are ready to hang!
What I love most is how easy is it is to grab the Washi Tape Hanger and bring to a different room and it can hang from just about anything!
