DIY :: Washi Tape Magnet Tutorial

I recently started using washi tape to pretty up the packaging for my orders. This stuff is so versatile, and I really have to control myself when it comes to buying it. Thankfully I'm not terribly compulsive.I was going to wait to shoot this tutorial until my new and more colorful tape arrives, but I became too impatient. Compulsive, no; impatient, yes.

SUPPLIES.   washi tape
            magnets (I used 3/4")

Wrap a length of washi tape around the magnet, leaving the loose ends in the back. Press down on the corners to flatten them.

Going in the opposite direction, wrap a piece of different coordinating washi tape around the magnet to cover up any visible parts of the magnet.

Have fun mixing and matching the tape on your magnets! These make great gifts for bridal showers, housewarming parties, or stocking stuffers! Please be sure to keep them out of reach of small children, as they could pose a serious choking hazard.

PS. isn't that bear drawing in the top photo precious? My daughter drew that back in the Spring before she turned four. It's my favorite.
