Washi Tape Inspired Mod Podge Paper Organizer

Hello everyone! Have I mentioned that I’m getting addicted to washi tape? LOL. I’m also addicted to mod podge LOL. Since I can’t find easily washi tapes around here, I thought I could create my own kind with paper and glue! I tried this idea with a paper organizer and it turned out so cute!

I had so much fun making this. It’s easy too =D and the result is very colorful and decorative. I have it right next to my computer and it cheers me up every day. It sounds silly but it’s true =D!

You only need strips of scrapbooking paper, mod podge, a paper organizer and ribbon if you want to add an extra touch!

I made a cut on the strips so they seem like ribbons and started gluing each strip.

I placed the strips horizontally but each one is in different length.  I cover both sides and the front side of the organizer. Then cut the leftovers leaving about ½ inch.

Then I mod podged all the surface and leave it to dry for about 2 hours.

  1. Hi Cami! I just love this project and the beautiful, bright happy colors – perfect for organizing my huge stash of paper in a lovely way! Thank you so much for sharing with us at Best of the Weekend – I’m featuring it at tonight’s party and pinned, of course! Hope you have a happy Friday!

  2. Super cute, and a great way to get organized too! Totally pinning this, and I wanted to let you know I featured this on my blog this morning; thanks for sharing it at Creativity Unleashed!

  3. Pretty and practical. Wanted to let you know I’m featuring this when my link party opens up tomorrow night!

  5. I love washi paper as well; this is a great alternative. This is such a cute organizer. Thank you for linking to the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. Hope to see you next week.

  6. This is a great organizer. You truly made is so much cuter with the washi tape. Oh how I love washi!

  7. stopping by from Simply Dream & Create link up…good idea with the mod podge over the washi tape! I was covering formula containers with it but the tape was peeling…I’ll have to try coating them! also looking at your “make me a button” button…going to look into that! my button could use some TLC!

  8. Love, Love Love! I had bought a plain white magazine holder like this a couple of months ago. This is so cute! I must makeover my plain holder now.
    Happy New Year!

  9. Hi Camila,
    Just stopping over from the Sew Many Ways link party. What a cute idea to cheer up an office! So quick and easy too!

  10. that´s a great idea! I have too many white & boring organizers at home, so I will make my next project to “wahi them up” a bit ^ ^

  11. I have seen these Washi tape crafts several times, but I guess I don’t get it. Is it like duct tape? Or is it specifically made for crafting? I love your improvisation with scrapbooking paper. It looks just like the tape. I don’t think I’d have the eye to come up with these cute projects. I mean, you need the paper, the ribbon, and the plain magazine holder/paper organizer. I just wouldn’t ever think to buy that stuff!

    You have the cutest little projects. I’ll just enjoy your handiwork and maybe, one day, if we have a craft room or office or toy room, I’ll try some of them out!


    1. Hi Bethany, Thanks so much for stopping by!. Washi tape is kind of like duck tape. I would say it’s more like a regular scotch tape but decorated. It has endless different patterns and you can use it in almost anything. Imagine you are wrapping a gift. You could wrap it with craft paper {the brown one} and instead of using a regular tape you could use some cute washi tape and your gift would be super cute. You can cover pens, making cute cards…possibilities are endless!!!! I bet you would get addicted to washi tape as much as I am if you tried!

      Thanks you SO SO SO much for your sweet words. It makes my heart so happy to know people enjoy my work. You just made my day!!!
