Back in August I shared how I used an IKEA pot lid holder to organize my growing collection of washi tapes. I also said I thought I had enough washi and would buy no more. I might have lied. I keep buying to fill in the missing colors. You know, when you go looking for just the right blue, and none of yours are right? Yeah, those missing colors.
So I'd been collecting the new tapes in a bag down in The Abyss, that area of floor space at my feet where everything eventually lands. I can't see going across town to IKEA to buy one $5 item, so I just never go. I even tried to order it online, but it was $20 to ship. Pffth. So the bag at my feet was filling up.
Until this weekend, that is! You see, one of my local tweeps, Kara, tweeted me that she and her DH were headed to IKEA, and did I want her to pick me up another washi rack? YES YES! We did the clandestine parking lot hand-off again, and I rushed home to re-organize the washi. Now it looks like this:
Here is the blue/green section now:
I think I may have a problem.
To attempt to justify this collection, I decided to make a card using some of the tape. I used the new OWH sketch:
CAS-ual Fridays Big Thanks stamp set. The gray chevron is part of a sheet of washi tape, and because of that, the strip of blue is stapled to the card to hold it in place. I decided the white-on-white was boring, so I used some more of the tape to make a border around the front of the card. I actually applied the adhesive for the top panel inside the washi rectangle on the card front so I knew it would stick. The washi is yummy, but not good with adhesives.
Right after I added the gray piece of washi, I decided to accentuate it by scoring a line above and below it, which you can sorta see here:
Now I may try this sketch with paper, like a normal person would do. ;/
Thanks for stopping by!
