WOYWW 16th July

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog

Here's a little cardboard box that I covered with Washi Tape.

This is what I use it for.

I decided a second band of the flowered Washi Tape would look better.

It stands on this Lazy Susan I got the other week at The Range.

Hope you all have a lovely WOYWW.


  1. Good idea using washi tape to cover your box it looks really good . Happy woyww Jill #19

  2. Okay first love Greyhounds! We had a retired racer when we first got married. So sweet. Second the little box is cute, I have one similar that someone made for me, it's been on my desk for years!
    Happy WOYWW

  3. I really like the colors of the washi tape that you covered the box with!

  4. Just realised the photo of the finished box isn't actually right. I finished it off with two strands of the flowered Washi Tape with a break of about an inch between them.

    Jill, Thank you.

    Angie, Once you've had a Greyhound, it;s hard not to have another. Polly is my second one. In the not too distant future I hope to have two together.

    Thank you. I particularly like the box, as I can see my pens, whereas they use to be in a pencil case. I still have various ones in cases, but these ones I use a fair bit.

    Hazel, Thank you. Washi Tape has so many uses:)

  5. Lovely colourful box there, Sue. Well done. Great way to store those markers.
    Take care. God bless.
