- One 6" x 12" piece of double-sided patterned paper
- Paper snips
- Ribbon and extra paper to embellish
Place the 6" x 12" piece of patterned paper with the 12" side along the fence. Make sure the pattern that you want on the outside of the box is facing up. Score at 1" and 11".
Turn your patterned paper so that the 6" side of the paper is along the fence. Score at 1", 2", 4" and 5".
Burnish all the folds and cut tabs on my 6 inches up to the score line.
Turn the paper over and line the second and fourth segments with Scor-tape from tab to tab. Remove adhesive backing and fold down.
Line the center tabs on both ends with Scor-tape. Remove adhesive backing and secure tabs on each side to create corners, and finally, your box.
Embellish your box as desired. I die cut and layered a couple of stars and popped them up on the front of my box. I also cut small slits in the front of the box and slide ribbon through it.
Voila! A washi storage box to clean up my shelf.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

If you have made it this far, I have before and after shots for you. Thanks to all you readers who encouraged me to clean up my shelf. Notice all the washi tape that is just in piles and not very accessible in this before picture.
Here is the after picture. My washi tape is much easier to get to now. You will notice that I still have tapes behind my new box. I'll have to whip up another one for the rest of my tapes. You will see that my Scor-tape (in 3 different sizes) is always on the lower shelf where I can reach it! Love that stuff!
