I thought a pretty way to store and display my washi tape collection would be to line them up and hang them somehow. As I was brainstorming storage methods my eyes landed on a package of 12 inch wooden dowels that were still laying out from the Angel wand I made for Halloween.
I know I've seen ribbon hung this way, so why not washi tape? I immediately jumped on Amazon and started searching for hooks.
I originally thought about using the little screw-in hooks that you see coffee mugs hanging from, but I ultimately decided to go with these wire hinged hooks from command. These hinged hooks are perfect, the hinges move just enough to so there is enough room for the washi tape to hang from the wall!
It really is as simple as it looks! You can hang these little command hooks anywhere: walls, bookshelves, picture frames or doors. (Just measure, peel and stick!) I decided to attach them to a piece of heavy duty white card stock and put them in a frame. I hope we will be painting my craft room soon, and I didn't want to attach them to the wall and then have to take them down again. Plus, I used the same frame as my magnet board, and they look cute hanging next to each other.
I actually have room on the wall for one more frame... What do you suggest I put in it? (I noticed they have caddies too, maybe that is where I should store my scissors, seam rippers and tape.)
One last look: so pretty!
What do you think? Let me know if you make something like this too!
