Let's Talk Tuesday: What to do with all that Washi Tape

Happy Tuesday morning! Thanks for stopping by for another edition of Let's Talk Tuesday. Today we're talking about washi tape. I don't know if I should be proud or ashamed of the amount of washi tape that is currently in my stash. Let's just say that if I was to stop my collection of washi tape right now I would still never be able to use it all.
I created 2 new projects using washi tape to share with you today. I had so much fun making a small dent in my washi tape stash.
On this first project I created a background with washi tape. This is a great way to get lots of that tape use and get it on your projects.

 This layout is about grocery shopping and how it changes over the summer when there are 6 kids at my house.
 I included a copy of my grocery receipt on the back of my layout, just for fun. Maybe one day my kids will be shocked at the cost of groceries when they were little.

The second project I created I used washi tape to create a grid and to attach photo frames. This doesn't use a ton of washi tape but it does make a very easy framework to follow for a layout

If you'd still like a few more ideas on uses for washi tape you can check them out here:

While we're talking about Washi tape let's talk a little bit about storing your washi tapes. Here are a couple of ways I store my tapes.
I don't store them all the in the same place. Most of my storage is done by manufacturer. So my tapes are divided accordingly. Most of my tapes come from Bella Blvd the other tapes are from various manufacturers and are stored together in a basket
My Bella tapes are stored on a few different things that I picked up at the thrift store. They sit on the corner of my desk.
 The one on the right is actually a jewlery holder that I disassembled and  only use part of now. The one on the right used to be a toothbrush holder (once again, I took it apart).
 These are old wooden spools, not very practical storage but so cute!
This piece was an oil and vinegar holder. I love it because it holds a few of my most used adhesives all in one spot with a few of my favorite rolls of washi too.
What is your favorite way to use Washi tape? How do you store it?
