Are you into washi tape? I absolutely love it. (Trevor does too.) My first six rolls of washi tape hung on one of the two pegboards in my scraproom (which you can see here). It was really convenient... until my collection of washi tape grew. Soon I had washi tape cluttering up my desktop, balanced on paper trays, and on the floor under the desk. Totally unacceptable.
I've seen dozens of different ways to store washi tape, including vertically on a paper towel holder, lined up in drawers, thrown into baskets, organized in pencil boxes, and even displayed on a window shutter. I wanted my washi tape to be out in the open but off the flat surfaces. I wanted a storage system that was flexible in size and easily accessible.
I happened to have a length of dowel that was just long enough to hold all my washi tape rolls. I bought some 3M wall hooks and stuck them above my bulletin board.
I organized my washi tape by color and threaded it on the dowel. I balanced the dowel on the hook and that's all there was to it!
Here's a closer look:
I absolutely love it! The best part is that I can leave the tapes in place and tear off whatever I need. As I collect more rolls, I can either replace the dowel with a longer one and move the sticky-back hangers outward or I can put a second washi tape hanger just like this one directly above it.
How do you store your washi tape?
