Upcycled Washi Tape Storage

October 16, 2015

A wax paper or aluminum foil box is the perfect box to re-purpose into a Washi Tape storage box. In a couple hours, using basic crafting tools, your favorite paper and some embellishments, you can create a custom Washi Tape storage box of your own!

A wax paper box is a great choice for this project is because it has a built-in cutting system. The box is the perfect depth for the rolls of tape. 18 rolls fit in my finished box.

Now to make the washi tape storage box pretty!

I chose a couple sheets of quality 12×12-inch scrapbooking paper to cover the box. Using “Cut and Paste,” designed by Jen Allyson for My Minds Eye, I cut a 12-inch strip and it’s just a little bit short. Therefore, I used another sheet of coordinating paper to add to the edge that covers the area.

I covered the entire box with paper, inside and out. Then ribbon was added, along with thickers dimensional lettering, a few jewels, and rick-rack-like cut paper around the edges. A large brad on the front keeps the lid closed. I attached a string to the inside box top with the idea that I would wrap it around the brad, but I didn’t end up needing it because the lid stayed wedged behind the brad to remain closed.

It only took me a couple hours from start to finish. Try your own!

Here’s a guest post I did with Amy Tangerine that shows a Holiday Box. This is perfect for giving holiday washi tapes to your favorite scrapbooker!
