DIY: Crystal Light & Washi Tape Container

We love to drink Crystal Light, especially in the summer time. They come in these handy, cute, containers and I find myself having a really hard time throwing them away. I have been stashing them in my “I might do something with this someday” bin.

Enter Washi Tape. Please tell me I am not the only addict out there. Anyone else LOVE washi tape? I am beginning to think we need to start a support group  club.

So I picked out my favorite colors/ prints and came up with a fun pattern. There is not a right or wrong way on choosing the pattern. Just do what you love.

BTW the yellow chevron is my favorite. I could add this to everything in my office space.

Remove the crystal light label from the outside of the container.

Then cut and washi tape your container. How fun and easy is that?


I am using mine to hold pens, pencils, scissors, & a magnifying glass.


Hope you liked this DIY project and it inspires you to make something fun today.
