My Washi Tape arrived in the mail on Wednesday. I still can't believe I bought so much on our trip. The 3 packages of 4 in the center of the picture were purchased on our trip to Springfield this past weekend. I found them at Office Depot. They also 2 separate displays of Scotch brand Washi Tape. Scotch was $2.99 per roll. These are called IE by Office Depot in a 4-pk for $4.99. Much better deal and I found colors I liked better than from Scotch.
You know me... if it isn't organized I can't do anything so my first task was to determine the best way to store my washi tape AND have EACH roll visible for when I'm creating. Most of my washi tape will be used on the Documented Life Journal and what prompted the washi tape purchasing spree. I had a box storage that seemed to be the perfect fit. I cut the lid off, made dividers using foam core board. I spaced the dividers based on the width of the rolls. some were wider than others.
This is what 45 rolls of Washi Tape look like! :-D
I do have 3 rolls from SU. Normally, I would store these with SU product but since I will primarily be using this for DLJ and nothing else, I decided to keep everything together.
Oh yeah... one more thing. See the little squares of white paper in the bottom left of the box -below the blue washi. Those are preprinted labels I made. Each roll of tape has a label on the inside of the spool with a company name. I like to give credit where credit is due. Example: the rolls in the very top right - from the skinny orange to the pink with brown polka dots - Heidi Swapp... long before we knew what washi tape was. The tape is slick and more 'tape' than paper but the same concept. These rolls came to me in a Secret Sister box my very first year as a Quacker from sister Maggie.
