Easy way to organize and store your washi tape

I recently splurged a bit and got some new Create 365 washi tape from Me & My Big Ideas. So pretty!

I keep my washi tape in recycled cigar boxes. The rolls tend to get all messy in them so I came up with a way to keep them all organized in the cigar box.

I cut the plastic tubes the washi tape comes in and placed the halves in the box.

Voila! All neat and tidy, not to mention recycling the packaging.

Circle die cut paper Christmas tree and frame

I like using both the interior and exterior of the things I die cut and today I have a post that features two projects- one that uses the inside of the circle die cuts - A hanging Christmas tree and another that uses the outside of the circle die cuts - A photo frame.

To make these two projects I used a variety of green scrapbook paper and Sizzix Framelits Plus set of 15 circle dies.

After I die cut all the circles I cut a slit in each one half way through the circle to the center.

Then placed it on a piece of thin green yarn and glued the circle flaps together forming a slight cone shape. 

You can adjust the cone shapes as narrow or wide as you like and space them close together or far apart to make your hanging paper cone Christmas tree any shape you like.

With the "leftover" outside circle shapes I glued them together with the largest on top and working through to the smallest underneath.

I placed a cute photo of my nephew in the final circle.

Then I trimmed up the top page to a square and glued it onto a 12 x 12 piece of scrapbook paper.

To hang up my concentric circle photo frame I clipped it into a vintage wood clip hanger.

 I hope you have enjoyed my twofer circle die cut project and you'll give them a try!

Easy Halloween decoration- Candy Corn Stack of books

If you have a stash of books why not make an easy Halloween decoration with them by stacking them by color to form a candy corn.

Cost: Zip!

And best yet when the holiday is over no need to worry about where you are going to store your out of season decorations simply pop them back on the shelf where they belong.

Have you tried redacting book pages to make quotes and fun phrases? I love it. It's like a puzzle but creative.

I thought I'd make some more book cover art with the redacted book pages and adding my favorite new Halloween stamp - a mummy cat from Judikins.
