DIY Washi Tape Storage Box from Empty Paper Towel Roll

This is a washi tape box that I made from a paper towel roll. It was a challenge in one of the crafting groups I belong to on Facebook. I made it to match the box where I keep the tags that I have made (or am in the process of making). You can see the tag box behind the washi box.

The clasp and the feet of the washi box are flat pearls glued to buttons from shirts that I upcycled into a boho curtain for my front porch.

It was a bit challenging to make this washi box because we were not given any instructions, no template, no tutorial, nothing. I had fun but it was quite challenging to figure out how I wanted to put it all together. We were asked to use a toilet paper roll, but I needed more space for my tapes so I used the paper towel roll instead.

Pretty Hole Reinforcements for Tags, etc.

I wanted to make some hole protectors for my tags, but I don’t have the right size circle punch. So I used a flower punch instead. I like these so much that I think I’ll use them all of the time.


Take a piece of scrap cardstock. Color it with distress ink, watercolor, marker, whatever you have on hand. Use any color you like! I used brown because that’s what I had sitting on my desk.

Let the color dry completely. Punch a lot of little flowers (or whatever shape you like). I used this one because I didn’t have the right size circle punch, but I love these so much!

Once you have your shapes, use a regular hole punch to punch a circle in the middle of it. Punch one in your tag also (or wherever you want to apply it). Use a small amount of white glue to attach the hole protector to your tag.

Add a bit of twine or ribbon when it’s dry. Enjoy!
