Y’all, I have a tiny problem with hoarding washi tape.
I started with having my entire collection fit within a little plastic desk drawer organizer. Then I moved it to a larger drawer organizer, and then I decided to dedicate an entire drawer to washi tape and decorative post it tabs.
Well, now everything’s a mess because I’m not super good at putting things back when I’m working on a bunch of different things…
There are a bunch of different organizatizonal ideas but I wanted something a little less decorative and more utilitarian.
I love clean cut washi tape so I didn’t like any of the ideas that required a hacksaw blade or a recycled tin foil box or disposable tape dispenser. I also didn’t want to dig around or dump out a whole drawer to find a specific rolls. And I definitely didn’t want to dedicate wall space to my washi tape collection.
I wanted my organization to be simple, easily accessible and easily moved from workspace to workspace, since J.D. now has primary use of the craft room during the day.
After a little bit of brainstorming, I came up with a PVC washi tape organizer.
For this project, I used:
-  1/2″ – 10′ PVC Pipe, $2 at Home Depot
-  1/2″ 90° PVC Elbow, $0.28 each at Home Depot
-  1/2″ Tee PVC Connector, $0.54 each at Home Depot
-  1/2″ Caps, $0.38 each at Home Depot
- Ratcheting PVC Cutters, $12
- Tape Measure, $4
- Sharpie Marker, $3
If you’ve never used PVC cutters before, watch this video before starting.
You will need cut eight 1 1/2″ pieces, two 4″ pieces, two 8″ pieces, and five 12″ pieces of PVC.
Connect pieces as pictured.
Just add your washi tape collection and you’re done!
I love that it fits perfectly on the shelf in my craft room when I don’t need it, but that I can also quickly relocate it to wherever I’m working.
Also, can you spot all the duplicate rolls I have? I got most of them from Mopapo on Etsy. Whenever I order new roll from Jennifer’s shop, I get at least two just in case it arrives and I’m completely in love with it… I’m super fearful that my favorites will be discontinued or that I won’t be able to get my hands on any more once I run out. Also, Bean tends to sneak my favorite rolls to his desk and then I never see it again. It’s just a good idea to have extras. Haha.
