Craftilicious: Washi tape magnet how-to

I decided it was high time I started using all this washi tape I've been so inclined to purchase. And I have a few more rolls coming thanks to a pickyourplum splurge a few days back.

After a few minutes on Pinterest I have plenty of inspiration to get started. Here's my quick tutorial for some washi tape magnets.

Supplies needed:
washi tape
scissors
exacto knife
ruler
white paper
magnetic sheets

Peel the backing from your magnetic sheet and adhere to your white paper. Trim off the excess.

Take your rolls of washi tape and start creating 'strips' of tape on your white paper sheet as closely together as possible without overlapping.

Take your ruler and start cutting apart the 'strips' until you have actual real magnetic strips of tape.

Start chopping up the strips into whatever length magnets you prefer. Finish the edges however you like. As you can see I decided to try all different edges with mine. Some are arrows, others are zig-zagged to look like ripped tape and some are just straight.

Now find something cool to put on your fridge and stand back to admire your work!



Here's the give-away deal: Comment below and tell me what TWO options you like best from these photos. I'll will pick and announce a winner tomorrow, Tuesday 4/30. So hurry hurry hurry and don't miss out! If you win, I will ship you both the options you chose in your comment. What what?! Awesome, right?

I love the shape of the cloud arrows, and the yellow flowers with the triangles cut in. However, my favorite washi tape patterns would have to be the all the stripes. So I'm torn. Ha Ha, get it? You tear tape?! Oh, also love the short, grey stripe with the torn edges. Stop making so many options and making me only pick two. I am obviously incapable.

You know I like the yellow flowers. They feel so vintage. And the heart ones. Where did you get your tape? I feel like you said where in an earlier post, but now I can't remember.
