Washi tape box tutorial

For my first book 'Craft, Show & Sell' I made lots of new craft storage including these decorated washi tape boxes. We then promptly moved house so I didn't get a chance to share these pretty washi tape decorated boxes with you...

I love washi tape and have a ever growing collection which I use to hang inspiration on my wall and decorate all sorts of objects. One of my favourite is my washi tape bird houses, I just love all the pretty stripes. So I decided to decorate white cardboard boxes in a similar way by creating lots of pretty stripes. So I would always know what was stored in each box I also attached label holders to the front. The metal label holders came in a pack with half being white and the other half black, so I spray painted the black ones, including the pins that hold them on in a pretty turquoise colour.
