DIY washi tape magnets
Jul 202015
 

These magnets will take very little time to make, but they are oh-so-adorable. I love using washi tape on just about everything I can get my hands on. With all the different patterns and colors available, isn’t it so much fun thinking of new ways to spruce up items around the house?

For great inspiration on what to do with washi tape, check out Cute Washi Tape Craft Ideas. I’ve used washi tape in the past to spruce up DIY bracelets, lamp shades, clothespins, dollar store succulents, and cute shower ring wreaths. I’ve collected such a large amount of washi tapes over the years, that I’ve needed to devise a method of organizing it, and I love my washi tape organizer and storage unit.

All you have to do for this craft is stick some washi tape on magnetic strips, trim the excess and stick it on a metallic surface! Easy peasy! Let’s get to the details, shall we?

  1. They are really easy peasy, but very nice! I think I’ll do some for my board!

  2. I’m dropping by from Carolyn’s Homework link party. This idea for magnets is so wonderful. And easy. I like easy. It seems like I’m always needing some magnets — I’m going to make a whole flock of these!!

    I have a link party that I am trying to grow. It is Grandma Ideas Sharing Time at http://grandmaideas.com. It runs from Wednesday 12:00 a.m. through Friday night at midnight (Mountain Daylight Time). I think my readers would love this idea as much as I do. I encourage you to share this — and a couple of other ideas, too.

    I hope to see you there.

  3. How fun and easy! I have to admit, I have yet to really explore the world of washi tape but it all looks so cute and not to hard to work with.

    I am co-hosting the #HomeMattersParty link party this month and would love to have you stop by for a visit. The door is open through Monday http://alaynascreations.co/2015/08/07/home-matters-linky-party-49/

      Once you get one washi tape and see how much fun it is to work with and craft with, you’ll want a bunch more! At least that’s what happened with me! :)

      Thanks for stopping by, Alayna!

  4. Loved how simple & cute these are and shared them here: http://craftivitydesigns.blogspot.com/2015/08/kick-off-friday-5-simple-projects-to.html

    Also, wanted to say “hi!” because I am an engineer, as well. All that critical thinking helps us make our homes better and simpler too :)
