I just read an article of how a crafter used cookie trays to store her washi tape. Don't get me wrong I love to recycle just as much as the next person, but I have found that sometimes the recycled containers just don't hold up and then there is the whole cleaning it, drying it, and so on. So, this post is about some wonderful products that can be used to store your washi tape and are reasonably priced.

I made this card and tag box after watching a tutorial posted by MayMay Made It Crafts! on Youtube and just love making these. This it the third box I’ve made and probably my favorite so far. I used the For the Love of Tea! paper pack from Fabscraps and love the soft, but elegant look and feel of the paper. This particular box is for my Aunt who loves teacups. I thought it was the perfect gift for when she comes to visit my mom in September.

I joined this swap in one of my Facebook groups and we had to send our partner 10 different items showing something about our self that the other person may not know. I thought it was going to be really difficult to come up with 10 things, but it wasn't, and I actually came up with 11. To put all of these goodies together to send to my partner I created a bag and loaded it with everything.

I posted a tutorial on a Mini Business Card holder earlier, but I wanted to make on that was more of a box with a "normal" lid. So, sat down and made this box and really liked how it turned out. There is no Velcro and it closes like a regular box with a flap. I'm really liking how this one turned out. I was able to add 12 cards to this box, which is more than the other box would hold.

I've been inspired by Amber (lyriclover810) over at YouTube. I watch her channel faithfully, as she has a ton of ideas for things to make for a craft fair and she is just simply awesome. She makes these cute little mini loaded bags, which were a perfect gift to make for a special friend of mine and possibly make some to sell. I picked up some bags, tags, and dimensional stickers at the local Dollar Tree. Everything else I included in the bag I either made or already had.

Unity Stamp Co., they have the greatest stamps. This particular set is called "Fairy Dust" and while I don't normally do cutesy, I really wanted this one as I LOVE fairies.

I made these cute little tea pocket favors for my swap partner from the Rubbermoon moonmail club. The stamp used is from the July moonmail monthly club subscription. I LOVE the tutorials from lyriclover810 over at Youtube. I followed her Tea Bag Pocket Favor tutorial for making these, so need for me to post one here.

I bought four packages of these mini calendar pads from Rubbermoon and couldn't wait to use them. They come in a pack of 6. This is the first of many "tag" calendars I plan on making. The tag is from Unity Stamp Co. and they have a variety of sizes and colors to chose from. The embellishments are just some lovelies that I had lying around and decided to use on this piece.
The bubble background stamp is from the Stamps by Jolande & Marleen kit titled "You can do it". I absolutely love these two designers and their stamp sets.

Inspired by the July swap in the Rubbermoon Mail Club group. The swap included making mini business cards, otherwise known as "Moo" cards. These cards are 1 1/8" x 2 3/4", which are half the size of a regular business card. While they were a challenge to make I still had fun. Each card is unique and I can't wait for my swap partner to receive the ones I made. I knew that I didn't want to just send them loosely and decided that I would try and make a box that would hold all six of these mini art cards. It took me a couple of tries, but I finally came up with something that works great and can be decorated in a number of ways.
When my swap partner receives her package I will be posting the art cards as well. So stay tuned.

I really like how these two different cards turned out. I'm learning to use the Mirror Image Stamping Tool by Unity Stamp Co. and, needless to say, still have a lot more to learn. Oh, I received my Tim Holtz Stamp platform and, for the life of me, cant' figure out how I ever lived without it. I thought it was way cheaper than another stamp platform and am so in love with it. I'm not sure if I'll ever use another stamp block again.
