Are you obsessed with washi tape and looking for more projects to use it on? I have definitely been bit by the washi tape obsession and am constantly looking for creative ways to use it. This past weekend I used it to make some magnets and have included the tutorial below.
The necessary items are simple:
- Cut 6″ of magnet off of the roll
- Peel of the backing
- Place the washi tape onto the sticky side of the magnet
- Use the deckle scissors to cut each end and in the middle (gives a “ripped” look)
- Washi tape is slightly wider than the magnet tape, using normal scissors, slide the blade against the magnet to trim off the excess.
Washi tape that is darker in color and doesn’t rely on the background for white works better. For example in the photo below the white in the teal & white damask is printed on to the tape itself whereas the pink tile pattern uses a clear section for its white. Since the magnet is black this clear doesn’t always look right. To fix this problem, you can first place a piece of solid white washi tape then put the pattern piece on top.
And here is the final product!
Let me know if you get a chance to make these yourself and send me your results!
