Washi Organization

Hi friends,

I have another organization idea  to share.  I saw it a few days ago on Facebook and was eager to implement it.  It is on a page that I liked called “Scrapbook/Craft Organization Ideas”.  I only liked this page a week or so ago and so far this is the first idea that I snagged.

Before this I had washi organization issues.  Back in my old home I had small racks that stacked that I stored the rolls on.  The racks weren’t very stable and they did take up precious table space (which is currently extremely messy).

Since moving I have kept the tape in a box.  I just didn’t want to go back to the old way.

The new idea is very easy and pretty inexpensive.  The only thing I used was a hanger made for multiple pairs of pants and an over the door hook.  (The Facebook page used an over the door wreath hanger but I already had a hook).

I am finished adding the washi tape that I now have but I do have room for more.  Yippee!

There are several things I like about this solution.  The biggest one is I am using unused space to store the tape and it gets it off my desktop.  It also makes it highly visible and is easy to organize.  The only complaint I have is it is across the room from my desk but that is only 4-5 steps so it isn’t a big deal.

I have my old washi tape holders that I don’t know what to do with.  If you would like them then please message me.    I hope this idea helps you and spurs you on to be more organized (and me).

Christmas blessings!

  1. I had a lot of ribbon laying around. I took a regular hanger and had EJ cut the end and make a loop to hold it together. That didn’t turn out so well. Then I found a plastic bag with pockets. It’s hold some ribbons but not all. If I can find a hanger like you have, I’ll be okay. I’ll keep my eyes open at garage sales. Good idea.

  2. I was thinking about the ribbon like Janice. I think I have a skirt / pant hanger like that but. I’m not sure if mine comes apart like yours. I will have to check it out. Hurray! Tomorrow is my last day at work, for Christmas break- I think I get off for 12 days. Hope everyone enjoy this special time of year.
