Washi Tape Dispenser

The minute I found these 2 beauties
I knew they were special...

I think at one time they were 
for cassette tapes... 

I knew right away what I was going to use them for... I admired a tape dispenser on Pinterest that got me thinking...

I loved the idea of using a hacksaw blade but 
it wasn't long enough for this project...

...but the cutting edge from my 
parchment paper was!

I pulled the blade off the cardboard and
glued and nailed it onto the 
edge of the box...

It works perfectly as a cutting edge.

This box made one awesome dispenser for my
washi tape!

The tape fits snuggly into the spaces.

Luckily there are a lot more spaces. I might even add another cutting edge to the other side because I just ordered more tape!
