washi tape dispenser and storage ideas

Washi tape is an extremely versatile craft product loved by crafters, gift givers and artists all over the world. The iconic patterns and colors make it a fun way to jazz up anything that needs some adhesive tape. From present wrapping to children's school projects and product packaging. You can understand why one does not simply buy just one kind of Washi tape! If you've succumbed to the pull of these fun, bright designs and started up your own collection (we don't blame you!), then you'll understand that they're too good and too pretty to keep locked away in a drawer. Rather, the best thing you can do is have a washi tape holder or some other custom washi tape storage means that will keep everything neat, organized and easy to display. What's really awesome is you can actually build them entirely on your own. Check out these smart Washi tape dispenser and storage ideas.

1 - Washi Tape Shelf

Use an old wooden shelf to give each of your tapes a specific place to belong and make them easy to see.
