If you, like me, keep many of your sewing/crafting supplies out in the open in decorative containers, you’ll love this quick-‘n-easy project from Dianne Faw! Simply take the cover out of a tape dispenser, use it as a template to make a new, pretty one (from scrapbook paper, gift wrap, a map, whatever you have on hand), and put the new cover in. So cute! ♥
P.S. I’m keeping my new dispensers in this fabric basket that I fashioned from an “oops” while making my first bracelet purse. And if you haven’t tried a bracelet purse yet, click here. They’re so much fun to make and give for little girl gifts!
Oh my gosh, how cute! 🙂
Isn’t it??? I love finding easy, pretty ideas like this! 🙂
Same here! Make something ugly cute! 🙂
Also, I can’t remember who I’ve told and who I haven’t but…I have nominated your blog for not one, not two, not even three, but 4 awards!! Enjoy!
Oh, thank you! How kind! Please allow me to *bend* the rules a bit and, instead of writing a post about myself, add the buttons to my sidebar with a big THANK YOU to you (plus, when you click on each button, it links back to you!) as a token of my appreciation. And keep up the great work on your blog! Thank you again! 🙂 Katherine
That is TOTALLY fine with me! 🙂 It took so long to do that post, I wouldn’t do it again! So I understand lol You’re very welcome! :=D
So cute! I believe in prettifying everything 🙂 Any thoughts for improving refillable tape dispensers?
Hmm . . . maybe check out Pinterest? Let me know if you find something! Thank you! 🙂
I just wanted to let you know that I have nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award.
If you’d like to accept this award then please take it to your blog and pass it on – if this is not your cup of tea then please accept this as a compliment on your blog.
I’m an SO honored, Maggie! Please allow me to *bend* the rules a bit and, instead of writing a post about myself, I will add the button on my sidebar will be captioned with a big THANK YOU to you (plus, when you click on the button, it will link back to you!) to show how much I appreciate your kind gesture. And congratulations on your very well-deserved award, too! 🙂 Best, Katherine
Thank you! It’s fun to find a quickie project that puts a smile on your face! 🙂
Oh! What a brilliant idea! 🙂
I agree . . . whoever thought of it first IS brilliant! 🙂 Thank you for visiting! 🙂
Hi- thanks for ‘liking” my blog. i thought I would see what you were up to. I TOTALLY love this tape dispenser idea. So easy. I can’t believe I didn’t think of it. I’m always covering boxes and things with decorative paper. I’m definitely going to do this.
Thanks for the idea
You’re most welcome! And I love your blog! 🙂
How cute are those? I think I am going to have to start using disposable tape dispensers again, just so that I can decorate them. Thanks Pillows
You’re so welcome! But I wonder if those refill rolls would work in these???
I use one of those heavy refill tape dispensers and I guess it too can be decorated.Nothing that a little fabric or fancy scrapbook paper with a side of decoupage cant cure. I will try it. I’ll take before and after pics.
Yay! Can’t wait to see it! 🙂
I have to go work out when I get home but I’m pretty sure I can sneak in a little craft session before bedtime. Hopefully it wont have an overtly Frankenstein motif about it when I’m done, lol!
Great quick and easy idea. =)
My favorite kind! 🙂 Thank you for visiting! 🙂
I love this idea!!! I’m going to do this with every tape dispenser in the house 🙂
Me, too! I keep finding them and redoing them! So easy and fun and pretty! 🙂 Enjoy! 🙂

Love this simple idea. I’m thinking of doing it inside my Walmart plastic boxes. I saw that on Pinterest, but I know it will take a lot longer.
Ooohhh . . . LOVE that idea! Anything to make the world a prettier place, right? 🙂 Be sure to post pics if you do! 🙂
