Upcycle Style: Washi Tape Magnets
On our recent trip to Japan I couldn’t resist picking up a colourful assortment of washi tapes. Emma loves to use them to stick up her artwork around the house, but unfortunately she is a little heavy handed and some of my favourite designs are nearly running out. In an effort to resolve the disappearing washi tape ‘situation’ I created some pretty washi tape magnets from unwanted advertising magnets that were just cluttering up the fridge.
Those advertising magnets just seem to multiply, where so they all come from?
I salvaged the strongest and largest ones for this project and the rest went in the bin.
The fridge looks much happier now with cute reusable magnets that look like pieces of tape.
You will need:
Unwanted advertising magnets (choose strongest ones)
Assorted Washi tapes
White adhesive paper
1. Cover advertising side of magnets with white adhesive paper. You may need to add a couple of layers if the design is still showing through.
2. Stick down your favourite washi tapes on the white paper layer.
3. Cut through the magnet to make individual washi tape strips. Trim the ends square or like little arrows.
All done! So quick and easy.
Perfect for sticking that artwork up on the fridge.
