On-the-Go Washi Tote

Hey planner babe! Today I’m excited to share with you my new on-the-go Washi Tote. It holds a ton and is perfect for taking along to planner meetups. No more having to go through the painful process of choosing “just a few rolls” to take! 🙂

A few months ago, I was at a meetup and saw a fellow planner girl with her washi in a clear tube. Not sure if she had the tote, but she mentioned that she got the tube at Hobby Lobby. I’d looked a couple of times but hadn’t found it.

Earlier this week, I was browsing the isles, looked up, and there were a couple of the tubes, hanging right next to this tote!  Apparently they sell extra empty tubes as well. That might be a good option for you if you want to be able to swap out already put together tubes of coordinated washi.

The brand is The Paper Studio and I picked the tote up for 50% off its original price of $24.99. You can purchase it in store and online, HERE.

It was originally designed to be a  ribbon storage tote. Each zippered, clear plastic tube is secured with a strip of velcro and removable for easy access.

Each tote contains 6 tubes, that’s a whole lotta washi!

Dimensions:

Tote:

  • Length: 4″
  • Width: 11 1/2″
  • Height: 6 1/4″

Tube:

  • Width:10 1/4″
  • Diameter: 1 3/4″

Thanks for reading.

Happy Planning!

A Handy Tip for Sending and Storing Washi Tape Samples

Good morning artsy people! Today I have a recent find to share with you.

I’d been looking for something to wind washi tape samples around, something light and thin that I could include in Happy Mail and Pocket Letters. Well, while browsing Amazon I came across these little beauties and they’re perfect!

What they are, is plastic floss bobbins and you can get a pack of them for just a couple of dollars on Amazon. More info available HERE. They’re sturdy, extremely light weight and tuck nicely into a pocket letter or happy mail envelope. Of course, you don’t have to buy 1,000 of them, like I did, but for the price, I figured what the heck, I can give some away and include some empty ones in Happy Mail that I send out.

Another great thing about them is that you can use them to store your own washi tape samples that others send you! They have a handy little hole at the top which allows you to thread them through any number of key rings and clips to help keep them all organized.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed today’s tip!
