Hi everyone, well its that time of the week when Julia from WOYWW gets us all together to have a look at desks from all over the world..
Today I am working on a little book to hold some home made washi tapes.. I am still doing the inside, the outside of the book itself is kind of done, still needs some decoration. I made it out of the box my coffee comes in. I have pics of some of the steps, will do a post with links on all of it when I finish it.. The greaseproof paper still has to get cut into lengths and stuck on the black inside pages so the washi doesn't stick, will see how it all works but I am happy with it so far.. Still have to make the washi tape as well. I would like to make some washi with paints so they will match with the colors I have, so then I can use these on my journal pages. Thought this also might be a fun gift for a friend, so can see me making a few of these.. You could also use this for ribbon storage which I think might be a good idea.. Great for maybe a little travel one to put a few of this and that in it.. Was even thinking it might be good with a few pages with pockets in it that can hold tags and tickets and things lots of ideas, will see what I can do with this its a great design.
I would also like to say a BIG welcome to 2 new followers to my blog Mary and Barbara. I seem to find something every week I cant wait to try. There is just so much still to learn, feel like I have just scratched the surface..
Have a great day..

Hullo there Sandy ah washi tapes now I wan to know how you are going to make them.. and am I being dumb or what would it have better to have made them first before storage.. but then I always was back the front. Happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz.x #25ReplyDelete
Perhaps you could show us how you make your home made tapes as it all sounds very interestingReplyDelete
I must be the only person not to have any washi tape (or have made any either) look forward to seeing the storage for them later. Helen, 8ReplyDelete
Your desk is looking good this week and I am looking forward to seeing your washi tape book when it is finished. I have some washi tape but keep for getting to use it. I love the idea of making your own tape please do share with us when you do make your ownReplyDelete
Wishing you a Happy WOYWW
Hey one creative desk and what a good idea to make as gifts. You and your washi tape addiction LOL I am sure you will make many more items with Washi. LOL You must show when completed.ReplyDelete
How very interesting Sandy...I need a tutorial for sure, thank you in advance! I have a ridiculous collection of tapes (not all Washi) that I love and actually use...so a nice way to store and access them would be fab.ReplyDelete
Yes I can't wait to see how it turns out too! Great idea...I have just starting using washi tape and love the effect. I do love the way your little round owl stands guard over your creative projects lol! Happy WOYWW.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to seeing the end result and like others I feel a tutorial will be needed.ReplyDelete
Oh wow.. what fab blog!ReplyDelete
As I could see you are an Art Journaler too!
Maybe you have fun to participate once on our monthly challenge for Art Journalers over on
Am well impressed with your little book and looking forward to seeing it finished and how you store all the things in it. Some great ideas you have for further ones.ReplyDelete
Not sure what you are doing re the washi tape - ah well, patience and I guess all will be revealed.

Hi Sandy, hand made washi tape - now how are you making them, I wonder. The storage book is looking good and I can see that the completed project would make a smashing present for a crafting friend. Hope you are having a happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #55ReplyDelete
Well, that's a good bit of recycling there! Home made washi tape?? How do you do that then? Sounds interesting :)ReplyDelete
Hugs, LLJ 45 xx
Your Washi storage sounds great. I love making my own tape, it's much more fun than buying it ready made.ReplyDelete

I know what you mean, it amazes me how our craft changes and expands all the time. So many things to try and do, bt what we have in trying! Thanks for visiting me today, waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥ReplyDelete
I love that little owl Sandy - nice to see him keeping an eye on your crafty activities! x JoReplyDelete
I can't wait to see how the box comes out. I imagine a little "travelling kit" of scrapbooking supplies. Pens and little tags and sheets of paper to sketch on. You are right - there are so many possibilities.
My Truvia comes in a cute little box and you've inspired me to try to do something with it!
Thanks for your visit - I'm slowly getting around to visiting desks this week.
Great desk and fabulous project! happy WOYWW Gill x #41ReplyDelete
