I just found a little box to put all my washi/craft tape rolls in I got on clearance at Michaels. And I have room for 2 more rolls.
I wasn't even interested in washi!

Ooooo, I'd love to see it. I have a ton of washi that I have in one of those plastic shoe boxes and I'm not loving it. Is it made specifically for washi?

No, it's just a chipboard box that held squares of soap from France. Lord knows how old the soap is but it smells really good! I think it might've come from hubby's grandmother's house (not sure) and she died 16 years ago.

Try doing a google image search for washi storage.

we're converting you to the 'Dark Side' of scrapping, Kaleidoscope!! lol!! Your conversion will be complete once you have over 100 packages of Thickers!! (apparently, anyway- I'm not there, yet-- lol!)

Ha ha, welcome to the dark side. I currently have 7 rolls and one more on the way, and I keep telling myself I am DONE for now. Ha. I'm supposed to be frozen for the forseeable future anyways, so not buying more shouldn't be a problem.

I have a couple rolls of smash & took the washi plunge yesterday & bought 4 more rolls of pebbles (i think) washi at my LSS (whim so doodle) yesterday. I wonder if I'll become addicted too?!

I bought a package of that clearance washi 3 days ago. I wasn't ever going to buy washi. Turned out to be perfect for my DGS's gold belt karate layout. I caved. It's in my adhesive drawer now with the rest of my tape. I will not be buying anymore. I just hope I find a way to use what I got--one yellow chevron and one dark blue chevron.

His karate page turned out really cute and totally out of the box for me. I used a bunch of my new stuff--veneer arrows and stars, Gold Lame, washi, gold foil paper... I love it. I really should post some layouts here for you all to admire.

Wow...sorry for the hijack...

I actually have been using it just as much (or more, lately) to decorate envelopes when I send cards, lol!! The glue never seems to stick the envelope shut good enough, so instead of sticking boring, plain cellophane tape on it, I add blue floral and pink polka dot tape!! (I figure I'm doing my part to brighten up the postal carriers' day, lol!)

I think my washi is having babies. every time I open the box, there seems to be another roll. I swear I only remember buying about four rolls, but there are well over 40 rolls on there now.

I love washi and it has been in a basket but it is hard to see it all (yeah I have enough to make it hard to see the bottom). This week I got a bamboo cutlery organizer that goes in a drawer. I stood it on end and stacked the rolls. The compartments keep the little washi towers from falling over and I can pull one roll out at a time which I couldn't do with a spool. I love it!

And kaleidoscope, between washi and mists you are on a crazy rampage! LOL Now we want to see what you make with them.

I love the idea to decorate envelopes with Washi!

I bought the Recollections 2-pack, yesterday, with the film strip and the cameras. I love it! I also got some on clearance!

That is exactly why I bought them. And I wouldn't have if it weren't for the clearance. I figured I'd use them on envies, and maybe cards. Don't intend to use them on LO's because I prefer permanent stuff and it also doesn't say acid free.

And I've been in Marshall's twice and have not succumbed to Thickers.

I did this with my Christmas cards and have also been using it for gift wrap. I have so much washi tape that I need to use more than just on layouts.

I only had a few rolls as well until I discovered cutetape.com for $2 a roll, let's just say I have way too much of it now!

I am totally addicted to washi tape! I store mine on a jewelry rack I got at Michaels. It's a bracelet holder with several outward spokes kind of like a tree. The rolls of tape fit perfectly, and it's pretty too! Just reading this thread makes me want to go shop for some more washi!

Yep, I did but only due to the clearance price. I tried using it again on a LO last night but kept pulling it back off--the final layout has 3 little strips. (The karate LO has a bunch though.)
