My wife has a growing collection of washi tape she used in her scrapbooking and crafting projects. Storage obviously became an issue. So my wheels started spinning and I found a solution in a couple of different avenues with large, vintage dominoes and the other style using vintage sewing machine cabinet drawers. Custom paint and distressing followed. And then the additions of beat up yardsticks for measuring or just for the appeal.
