I haven't decided what I will do with the other pieces, but as soon as I saw this one I immediately thought:
|Tupperfriends out there - what did this start its life as?|
So I got out my washi tape and went to town, upcycling it to fit the decor of my (newly reorganised) scrap desk.
|Which to choose? Which to choose?|
Here's a few tips on how I did it.
Because the base was wider than my tape, i used a pattern that would blend when using a top and bottom layer.
To get into the corners and other angles, I tore the tape or used small pieces that would get covered by the larger strips.
|Rolling the washi tape over the lip ensures you cover it all|
and gives it a neater finish
For the cups I kept it pretty simple and just put the tape along the top, folding it over as I went.
And there you have it - my upcycled pencil holder!
|Voilà!!! Totes cute!|
I must say, it was fun and easy and I recommend using your washi tape hoard to change the look of your desk. I know there's a few of you out there with enough washi to wall paper a room! (Kate? Kristen? Anyone else?) If you do use washi to upcycle something, send us a photo and we will add it to the blog.
