Washi LOVE anyone?

have you fallen in LOVE with WASHI yet?
washi tape that is....have you seen all the great sales on this fabulous tape?
Do you own a few rolls or maybe have a small collection?
like me...

Because I am constantly buying more tape and not really knowing for sure
what colors I have {luckily I have yet to double up}but I decided to make something to help
me out in remembering what I have at home and of course had to make it

I made a sweet compact - 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 key ring style file for my tapes.
and added a fun little tag cover to it...

Here are all my black & gray tapes

my blues & greens

and my reds & pinks

I suppose there are some other filing systems for tapes like a small
drawer and lay them in there so you can actually see all your tapes, perhaps use a dowel and stack them
there are a bunch of ideas - but I think this is much cuter and I can take it with me too...

sweet right? I LOVE it
try it YOU'll like it.

I am linking this up to the following parties:

have a crafty week

What a great idea to make a swatch book!! I love it!!! I don't own one single roll of Washi tape...can you believe that?!! I think I've always just used my decorative paper strips as I seem to have an over abundance of that!!! LOL!!

I'd never heard of Washi tape... I've used Washi paper on my eggart but never this. I'm running right out to find some. And what a great idea with the tags - I love it!

This is a GREAT idea. I love Washi tape but I stopped buying it as I was thinking WHAT am I going to do with all of it?? Love that you can see the mix of them at a glance.

This is a great idea! I don't have too many rolls just yet - so I don't need the organizing, I imagine that if my collection grows, I'll use this idea to remind me of what I have.
