Washi Tape Holder

Last week was really busy for me. I decided to declutter my craft room and throw away things that were not bringing joy to me (have you heard about the Konmari method?). It wasn’t as hard as I thought, you know I love junk and old stuff and things like that… The point is that I found that when I was about to throw something away, I had a lightbulb moment and knew what I wanted to do with it.

This is what happened with this cane and piece of scrap wood. I knew exactly what to do with it and it couldn’t be simpler.

Miss A was helping me so when I told her my idea she said she wanted to help. She measured the wood.

She draw a cross where we were going to drill.

Then she painted it with some watered down paint and place it above a heater to help it dry faster. The last thing was to drill the holes and glue the cane inside, which was previously cut.

This is one of the fastest projects ever! We like to have the washi tape at sight and all in one place instead of scattered on different drawers.

If you are interested you can have a look at some other projects.

Enjoy your week!

      Hi, Katrin! Yes, it comes it handy to store them. The best thing about it is that I don’t lose any inside the drawer.
      Happy weekend!

      Haha!! That is the exact reason why I did it Mary, too tired to search for the one I was needing at the precise moment and wasn’t able to find.

      Glad it can help you with all your duct tapes, Robin. I wish we had some here, you can only buy plain black and blue ones.

    Pili, I love this. Just a simple piece of scrap wood put to great use! I love the look of washi tape, it’s just as pretty on the roll as it is when used. It deserves to sit in a place of honor as part of your office decor! Let Miss A know that she did a great job!

    • Pili says:

      Thanks Nikki! She is so proud of it! That way when she uses some then she puts them back to their place without me having to tell her, that’s a bonus!
