Washi Tape Collection + Storage

As a planner addict, I have been trying to fid the most efficient ways to store my planner stash. I purchased the Ikea Raskog which is amazing for being able to roll my planner goodies around my office and even into my bedroom. My washi collection is currently stored in a Snapware “Snap n Stack” container which has 3 stackable parts. I’ve had it for years and I even use the larger one to store nail polish. The washi tapes are able to file accordingly next to each other without laying them down.You can purchase the Snapware container HERE.

Places I have purchased washi/paper/fabric tapes from include:

  • Michaels
  • AC Moore
  • Hobby Lobby 
  • Jo-Ann Fabrics
  • Tuesday Morning 
  • Target
  • Etsy

My favorite Washi would definitely have to be a floral one from Michaels chalkboard collection. Other “honorable mentions” are an arrow one, pink and gold stripes, and camera. I have yet to create a layout using the camera one, but I did feature it in my vacation plan with me (click HERE for that). My least favorite washi is the pineapple washi that was a craze on social media. Pineapples in general are a craze and the gold in the washi was one of the reasons I bough it. Unfortunately while I love the look of it, it doesn’t stick like my other washi tapes.

The Dollar Tree, if you’re lucky enough to have one in your area, is a great place to score paper and fabric tapes. The key difference between washi and paper tapes are that washi tapes are thin and can be removed easily from just about any surface. With the paper tape from Dollar Tree they will rip up the page you are working on. Despite that, they come in awesome variations. I was lucky enough to find a huge amount of paper and fabric tapes in one store in one day which I featured in a planner haul HERE. My favorite use of the paper tape was my 4th of July layout and July calendar.

You can find great deals on washi tape from Jo-Ann Fabrics with the minis that are sold. They are not the usual size of a roll, but they are a great sample that will go a long way in a planner spread. You can also find washi samples on Etsy with a simple search.

I am pretty content with my washi collection although I’ll be more content once I fill up all three containers. There’s no need to run out and become obsessive with washi because a little really does go a long way. Start with the basics such as plain colored washi and add prints that fit your personality. Have fun with it and HAPPY PLANNING! Enjoy my video below!
