pinned it, did it 2: washi tape magnets



This was such a quick, simple project that I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. If you click over to the original post by Twirling Betty, you can read just how she made her version of these genius washi tape magnets. I used her idea as a starting point and just used materials I had on hand.



I made these using adhesive magnet sheet, bought in a roll at Michael's. I believe the roll was $9.99 and I used a coupon on it, so it was $6.00 for a huge amount. Since I don't have any washi tape, I just used patterned paper from my scrap bin. Stick down the paper to the self-adhesive magnet and cut into strips. Cut ridgy ends to look like torn tape, and you are done and done. 

I may have gone a bit overboard and made about 50 magnets.

 Have you made anything from your pinboards lately? Share in the comments! I'd love to see.

  2. Well done! I admit that I pin things casually, you know, here and there, and then rarely do them. I think I knit too much! lol

  7. Gorgeous! Now I'm pinning yours to do. And I thought when I saw yours and before I'd read "I wonder if I could just use scrapbook paper instead?" Awesome!
