Hello and welcome to another Storage Sunday! This week I’m going to show you how to store washi tape the way I do it. I don’t feel like I have a great way to do so but I do believe my way of organizing them is pretty amazing! I recently outgrew my storage solution so I feel this is highly temporary, I don’t have another storage solution in mind yet so you know…
I think it is pretty hard to figure out the best way to store washi tape, as they need to be accessible, easy to overview and preferably in a dispenser of some sort. A dispenser, however, often take up much useful space I rather not waste. I have tried a few different ways to store my tapes and so far, nothing feels perfect in a convenient and space efficient way. I guess the search must go on (I keep hearing the Queen song, the show must go on, when I type this).
So here’s my current storage solution for washi tape, I keep them all in a plastic basket in three layers and not sorted at all. They are usually in a mess too but I sorted them quickly before the pictures were taken. At the moment they are stored on a shelf in about the same height as my head, among a lot of other things as you can see.
I should arrange them in some sort of order, maybe per color or how often I tend to use them. Not sure I really care enough to sort them as the storage solution is going to change, soon I hope.
As you can see, its hard to know what I have and where it is. To make this issue less of an issue I have my tapes very well organized using a ring binder and tags.
I keep all tapes on this ring binder, sort of sorted by color. This makes it super easy for me to browse and get an idea of whether the tape will match my project or not. Its easy to take out the tape(s) I think will match and compare or just use the entire ring and browse. I love this! It is the same solution as I have for all my stickles.
Alright I’m exhausted from tiling my kitchen, today I filled the gaps with grout and it was way more exhausting than I thought it would be! So I hope you got some ideas for how to store your washi tapes. If you have any awesome and space efficient ways to store them, please let me know! I am in dire need of a new storage solution (and sleep). Play it safe and don’t forget to check in next Sunday for a, most likely, better way to store washi tape!
