Washi Tape storage album - tutorial

Let me show you a pretty and easy way
to store your pieces of washi tape you got in swaps
or from projects you dont follow anymore
...
it is also a very cute way to present washi tape to someone
or use this little books when you go out for crops ...
 
1. Re any box you got around the house
which has a back from 1/2" - 1,5" ... not bigger ;)
 


2. cut them into little booklets with 3,5" x 3,5" pages
 
I make 2 of these books - one Christmas themed with a 1" back
and one "swap-bot" themed with 1,5" back ;)


3. look for some paper in your stash ...
you dont need big squares!


4. Cover both sides with paper
using dobbleside tape

 



5. Decorate the outside ;)

 
6. find some cards in your stash
you dont want to use anymore for card-crafting
I'm sure you have some like that ;)

 
7. cut them 1/2" smaler than the Cover ;)
 


 
 
8. use an 1" punch to punch the "slider" 

 
... like this ;)


9. cut waxpaper (or backingpaper) in 1" stripes

 
10. wrap this strips around the "slider"
 

 
... cut and glue

 
11. you got your first washi tape holder ;)

 
12. repeid this through all "sliders" on all pages you made


13. mark the middle of the back from every page


14. make a hole with a needle


15. cute Bakers twist into 8" pieces
you will need 2 stripes for every page to bind ;)

 
16. use a hook to fit them through the hole in the middle of your page(s)

 
17. tie both ends
 


18. put it into your album ...

 
... turn and tie the ends ;) ...

 
... repead to all your pages


19. FINISHED !!!


Now you can add you washi tapes ... Have fun and Happy crafting!!!


I've so much fun making these little guys ...
and how you see I already made 3 of them in 1 day!!!

 
Hope you will like them as much as I do ;)
 
HUGS and LOVE, Avalonia
