We R Memory Keepers Washi Tape Dispenser

We R Memory Keepers Washi Tape DispenserI recently bought myself a “We R Memory Keepers Washi Tape with Dispenser” to hold my collection of washi tape. I was going to purchase just the dispenser but found this fabulous deal and had to have it. The dispenser alone is currently about $20 but for about $32 it can be purchased with a really nice selection of 20 rolls of washi tape already included. The price of the tapes alone made this a great deal. I usually pay between $3 to $5 for a roll of washi tape. These tapes are great quality and buying them in the kit was a tremendous saving. It was like getting the dispenser for free! (This kit has been sold in Costco several times for $20-$22, but it is still a fabulous deal even at $32.)

The kit includes:

  • 10 – 1.5 cm rolls (26 feet each)
  • 10 – 1 cm rolls (26 feet each)
  • 1 Revolving Tape Dispenser in white

These washi tapes are made from beautifully printed Japanese paper. The vellum material is fairly transparent and looks beautiful on my projects. This washi tape (like most) is slightly re-positional, so you can move it if you are gentle. The color selection in this collection is great. The patterns are subtle which means I can easily incorporate the tape into a variety of craft and DIY projects.

We R Memory Keepers Washi Tape DispenserThe Dispenser itself has a convenient tape cutter located at each tape dispensing point.

I love that the Washi Tape Dispenser is so easy to use. It’s just like loading any desktop tape dispenser – you just match up the square end and pop the tape in or out. It makes it so very easy to change out my washi tape. I found that having the tape displayed made it so much easier for me to complete my projects. I load the dispenser with tapes that I need for a particular project and I can use them right from the holder.

We R Memory Keepers Washi Tape SelectionThe dispenser revolves which makes it very convenient to use when working on a project. The dispenser is heavy so it won’t move easily when you are using the tapes. To ensure it stays in place on your table top, it has the additional feature of rubber anti-slip pads underneath the dispenser.

One challenge I had with the dispenser is that it does not come with a cover. I live near the beach and need to keep paper and plastic crafting products well covered to protect them from our crazy weather and all the dust. So I used the plastic container that held it in place in the box and cut the excess plastic away (seen below). It fits perfectly. An alternative would be to use a clean plastic shower cap to cover the dispenser like a slipcover.

If you have a lot of washi tape to organize, We R Memory Keepers sells an add-on product called a Stackable Post for about $5 that can be used to stack multiple washi tape dispensers together into a rotating tower of tape!

I found the We R Memory Keepers Washi Tape Dispenser set to be a great way to organize and store my washi tapes. The conveniently located tape cutters and the fact that it revolves is an added bonus. I would recommend this set to anyone who loves working with washi tapes or is looking to start their own collections.

The We R Memory Keepers Washi Tape & Dispenser can be purchased on Amazon for around $36, or at Scrapbook.com for around $32. The dispenser is also available on Amazon and Scrapbook.com without tape for about $21-22.

I have been crafting since I was a child and I love seeing what others create. I live near the beach so everything around me inspires me. I also enjoy activities where I re-purpose something old & discarded & make it into something cool. My favorite mantra is "Re-use, recycle, and re-make".

    I purchased this at HSN on sale for 19.95 plus 6.95 shipping. I agree it is a great way to store washi tape and the included tapes are beautiful. They can be used in a variety of projects. I had another dispenser that I purchased for the same price and it was empty. I saw the stackable post at a local craft store and purchased it. It doesn’t work with my dispensers as they have to be the new stackable version of the dispenser.

    I had one but gave it away as it would not hold my collection of Tim’s tapes very well. I have so many rolls that I would be 5 empty ones and then that still may not be enough. I think this is a great way to start into the Washi craze!

    I got the dispenser with tapes as a gift and I love it. But it did nothing to help organize my existing washi tape collection, since this came pre filled. But i am hapy to have at least one roll of every color now. So much washi tape so little time!

    I agree with Cassandra. I would love to have all of the beautiful colors that come in the dispenser, but I have so much washi tape and this would just be adding more, without even organizing what I already own. It would be great for someone who is just starting out with washi tape. Thanks for the review!

    For those who already have a large collection of washi tape, you may consider using cigar boxes or boxes of that size to hold your collection and keep it dust free. I also use the cigar boxes because I can buy them from the local cigar shop who also sells paper thin pieces of cedar to place in the empty cigar box. I live near the beach and we have an amazing moth problem. This helps keep them out of my washi tapes.
