Washi Tape Box Organizer (easy and inexpensive)

Organizing supplies don’t need to be plain and boring. With just a few touches you can have also a decorative item. This washi tape Box Organizer was insanely easy to make and so inexpensive!

Hello everyone!  Today I’m sharing a craft made with one of my obsessions lately LOL washi tape. I decorated this plastic organizer box to store all my buttons so it would look cuter on my workstation and of course, to keep my craft supplies under control.

How to make a Washi Tape Box Organizer.

Even though I’m not the queen of organization, I love knowing where my stuff is and find them easily. There’s nothing I hate more than wasting time going through all my supplies to find something specific.

Often times, I just forget what I have and end up buying more.

One of the things I love the most are organizing boxes. If I can’t buy them I sure make them myself and decorating them is my #1 priority. I not only love organized stuff but also pretty too.

One of my favorite ways to decorate boxes is washi tape. The main reason is that I can just remove it later and switch washi tape patterns.

You probably have heard about washi tape before but,

What is so special about washi tape?

In Japan, it’s known as masking tape and the most renowned brand of washi tape is simply called mt – which stands for “masking tape”. According to Omiyage Blogs, the term “washi tape” refers to the fact that the tapes are made from Japanese rice paper and it’s different from typical masking tape we can find in the craft or hardware store.

What can I use washi tape for?

The short answer would be almost anything.

Besides the project I’m sharing here today you have an endless list of projects in which you can use washi tape. But I’ll list some that I can think of right now:

  • Decorated card Holders
  • Customized Page Dividers
  • Washi Tape Bookmarks
  • Washi Tape Twist
  • Pencil Cup
  • Pinwheel Flowers
  • Wooden Bracelets
  • Washi Tape Messages
  • Magnets
  • Creative Clothespin
  • Washi Tape Letters
  • Washi Tape Keyboard
  • Flower Pens
  • Gift Box
  • Painted Wood Bangle Bracelets
  • Hair Pins

How sticky is washi tape?

Washi tape is completely reusable (when handled carefully), biodegradable, tree-free and made out of highly renewable resources. The adhesive, depending on each brand, can be silicon, rubber or acrylic. Just like masking tape it does come off…unlike duct tape it does not leave a sticky mess reason why I love washi tape so much.

How to decorate this box with washi tape

This is a super cute, easy and quick project. I love keeping my stuff organized but, as I mentioned, organization doesn’t have to be boring, right?

So, this is what you need:

Washi tape, mod podge, cutter, and a plastic box.

I love diagonal stripes so I placed 2 different washi tape patterns diagonally on the lid of the box.

When I covered the whole lid, I used a cutter to get rid of the leftovers on the edges.

And I placed one stripe of washi tape on the bottom edge of the box.

And then I cover the side of the lid with other washi tape pattern.

Whasi tape can easily come out, so to avoid this I mod podged the whole lid and left it to dry.

That’s it! Tadaaaaaa!!!!

You can always add some more details to it but since I don’t have much space and I need to pile my boxes. Also sometimes the space is tight so I preferred leave it that way!.

    Your box looks so cute!!!!

    Washi tape makes pretty much everything prettier doesn’t it! I have a few of these boxes but have written on the top with a sharpies what’s in each section, I could cover like this then relabel them, that way I don’t need to be able to see through the lid and the world is just a little bit prettier!

    This is fabulous, Cami! I am OBSESSED with washi tape since learning about it roughly 5 weeks ago. Thanks for sharing!

    Good idea! I use those kinds of boxes for my buttons too. However, I do like to see through the top. I also keep my elastic in one so I could spruce it up with my washi tape.
