Lover of Washi

Okay I have a confession to make.
I love washi tape.
I am a little late to the party on this one...but I made it, teehee.

This is one of my 3 containers of washi tape...my other two aren't full .....yet.
The other two containers hold my browns/blacks and I moved my oranges and yellows into the third container.
These containers are for embroidery floss. I think they are $3.00 or $4.00 each.
It is a bit of a tight fit to close them, but they work great to hold these tapes in.
I am actually thinking of moving them to a pull out drawer, but I like the easy portability of these containers.

But the real reason for this post is because I made a short...yup you got that right, a short video on how I cut my washi tape thin and straight :)
It is really easy and you are going to say...now, why didn't I think of that when you see it ;)
So here is my short 3:21 minute video on how I did just that :)
Onto My Day:
Enjoyed a nice walk this morning. It was beautiful outside again...snow is almost melted in the back yard :)
I met my friend Debbie out for supper and a bit of shopping.
We have a couple of creative plans for our girls getaway this summer :)
Yes, we like to plan ahead ;)  We are planning on making a mini Smash journal. Neither one of us know what we are going to use it for.....but just the thought of making one is exciting. 

Hope you all had a creative Tuesday :)

Tracy :)


  1. Lover of Washi tape too. Why is it so darn expensive???? Yes, I am behaving and taking it easy. Most of my day is actually spent on the couch and I have been napping each afternoon.

  2. Absolutely brilliant Tracy! TFS...

  3. Rotfl, I was happy because I have 6 rolls! ;0) that container looks so scrummy with those colours!

  4. So many colorful washi tapes. They are all so cute and pretty. Thanks for the video!

  5. Loved the video, and thanks for sharing your washi storage. I've almost outgrown my old waxpaper box and am looking to move up, lol. Have a great Wednesday!

  6. I love what you said about being excited to create a mini Smash journal. We should be excited about creating, especially when we are making something new to us. I'm trying to find my creative mojo, and this post helped a lot :).

  7. Great idea for cutting. I have a ton of washi that my sister sent me from Japan and I never use it. I'm so bad about doing that. Love to hear your cute Canuck accent. :)

  8. Great ideas with cutting the tape. I love the storage idea. Just came across one of those boxes when I was cleaning up the other day and wondering what to do with it! Thanks.

  9. great idea. I've never cut mine. However, I have torn it and I like that effect too.

  10. Some great colours of washi tape there! Something I still haven't used other than to decorate the end of my storage boxes! Although that might just be decorative tape - don't know :-) Have a great day.

  11. Sweet! Thanks for the tip!
    I usually just try to cut real slow with my scissors, but of course not always that straight.
    Love washi. I have a nice big ceramic bowl of it on my counter :)
    Love how you used it in your planner!

  12. I have purchased washi tape but haven't used it yet. Now I heard of clear washi tape...isnt' that just tape LOL. great video

  13. Fun idea. I hadn't tried this with washi! But I do the same thing with border stickers: I leave them on the backing and cut right down the middle with my trimmer.

  14. Hahaha, why didn't I think of that?! Thank you so much for sharing!

  15. Well dang it, that is the smartest thing ever! I have seen the really wide rolls, but never the really thin ones. I love that I can cut them now! Thanks for the video!!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
