{Washi Tape Week} Day 1: Kitchen Organization

We're kicking off our Washi Tape Week with this question... "What would YOU washi?" Today's answer:


I started with a few storage containers and these awesome bag clips I got at IKEA...
1. Clear Storage Containers {IKEA} 2. Assorted bag clips {IKEA} 3. Utensil Storage {Target}

I used my new washi tape from Target {same stuff I used for my washi tape art} to create 3 fabulously-updated items for my kitchen. There are really no tutorials needed for these easy projects. Just get your tape and stick it on!

First up, my clear storage containers. I use these for dry storage in my pantry... pasta, rice, etc. Don't they look cuter with a little washi?
Here is my favorite transformation...

I saw these adorable washi tape twist ties on Pinterest {by Freetime Frolics}, and they inspired me to use washi tape to dress up my plain jane bag clips:
And last, but not least, my utensil storage container:
What a difference a little washi tape can make!

My kitchen is looking much more cheery with these simple updates...

We'll be back tomorrow with another fantastic use for washi tape :) Grab a button and follow along!

{And in case you missed our post about this tape from Target, click here for all the details.
It's only $4 for 4 rolls!! Such a good deal.}
Happy Monday!
