Design Team: Misty Christensen Week 4 Cycle 8
Washi Tape Holder
See Misty's creative way of storing her washi tapes! And P.S. She does it in style!
Today I have a pretty way to store your washi tape (and cheap too!) I'm late to the whole washi craze, so I only have 6 or seven rolls, but it's kind of a pain to keep them corralled, so when I saw this on Facebook I had to do it! The base is just a Reynolds Wrap box!
1~ CAREFULLY removed the little metal cutting strip from the box
2~ Gently take the box apart so it lays flat
3~ Lay the flattened box onto a piece of card stock. Holding the 2 pieces tightly together, fold both to make creases in the card stock. (do not make the first and last crease because you need to make some allowance in the wrapping process so the card stock isn't too tight around the box.
3~ Start gluing the box 1 section at a time starting in the middle. (If you start on the end, your creases won't match up) After you have everything glued except for the ends, just wrap the cards stock around the end of the box.
4~ Cut the excess card stock away
5~ Reassemble the box. U used binder clips to hold it together until it dried
6~ Add velcro for the closure
The central panel is a 8.5 x 11 inch piece of card stock embossed with Teresa Collins Beautiful Baroque embossing Folder from Craftwell. I inked it up with Vintage Photo Distress ink.
I stamped the ends with a beautiful stamp from Something Tattered (the stamp is in the Mr. & Mrs. set)
I added a vintage image as a label and used some butterflies that I punched from a Martha Stewart punch.
Love the Prima bling!
I added a decorative strip that I made with another Martha Stewart punch and a little organza butterfly.
My sad little collection of Washi lol
You can see the velcro at the bottom right of this pic.
