I have found a new obsession, aside from the one I have with the new SHEER PERFECTION VELLUM… and it’s with my WASHI TAPE! I can’t get enough of this stuff and it’s so versatile that I have to have it… no matter the color, they are just awesome… but they were creating quite the cluttered pile on my desk… which gives me anxiety. Then the other day I say a fellow Demo on instagram show how she stores hers and my brain about exploded!
I was searching for one of those cute little tape dispensers that were large enough to house ALL of my rolls, and I have a lot. Then I started thinking… where would I put that huge dispenser that someone has made?? Then when I saw this idea I knew this was the perfect answer!
This was the perfect answer! Thanks a million Patty Benete for sharing your genius. She liked to store them according to the groups they are sold in, for instance… all the Stacked With Love tapes went together and so on. I however see things in color… so I thought it made more sense for me to store them according to their colors. I can’t even tell you how this makes me feel… it’s almost like I took a Xanax… AAAhhhhhhhhh (no lie, this gives me all kinds of weird comfort.)
Edited 3/15/15- Ooppsss, I messed up on a few of my facts, sorry
So I went to my local office supply store and got me the biggest binder rings I could get, these are
10″ 3″ rings and they hinge open and closed for easy access (there are 10 in a pack). Then I started thinking… how am I going to “store” them though… I mean I only have SO much surface space, and I hate to show you how packed my china cabinets are with stamps and tools. If you are like me when it’s out-a-sight… out-a-mind… so then I started thinking, it has to be somewhere I will see it so I will use it.
It came to me…
I would hang them from the side of my desk. Pure genius, I have to admit! I love how they are out of the way but just close enough to grab and put to good use. I don’t show this but on the other side there are 4 more large rings with tons of tapes, it looks like a candy store! Bwahahahaha!!!
I hung them with my most FAVE tool, 3M command strip hooks. I hoard those too, in all sizes- cause you never know when you are going to need to hang something…
I just LOVE how it all turned out and looks… so clean, so organized, yet so colorful and honestly it inspires me too, when I see all that organized color it makes me so happy. It’s the little things I guess??
I hope that you too found this helpful. Do you have storage issues? Can’t seem to find the right system that works well for you? I actually have a ton of videos on how I set up my own stamp studio and storage tips that I used to make it super functional. You should check out my YOUTUBE channel or CLICK HERE TO SEE THEM ALL! Be sure to SUBSCRIBE to my channel so you get notified when I add new videos. I am always looking for ideas on upcoming videos too, so if you have a question or problem and need some help- let me know. I would love to create a helpful video for you!
I can’t believe it’s Friday… the last day of Spring Break, it’s amazing to me that the week has flown by this quickly. The kids will be none too happy when they too realize what day it is… it’s been fun though and remember-
