I am starting to build up my Washi Tape collection and really needed a dispenser for them but didn't want to spend money on one. So I had a look around the house to see if I could make one, well funny enough I had just finished a roll of cling wrap and thought this is perfect.
In our house hold we are big on recycling so I think I will make a few more once my collection grows.
Step 1. Don't throw out your kitchen paper dispenser boxes next time you finish a roll. The ones that have the serrated metal strip on them.
Step 2. Carefully take of the serrated metal strip, it should just peel off starting from one end first.
(Be very careful as it is sharp)
Step 3. Cut off the top lid flap.
Step 4. Glue on your desired paper or some contact paper. ( I used Kraft paper and covered it in clear contact)
Step 5. Hole punch each ends then you can add a piece of dowel.
Step 6. Hot glue the sarrated strip back on one side of the box, make sure you glue the serrated bit of the strip slightly higher than the edge of the box as this will make is easier the cut of the tape.
Once step 6 is done you can add your tapes to your new dispenser.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I am enjoying mine..
