Make Washi Tape Magnets – Super Joy Loves Her Super Friends Day GIVEAWAY

Hey Everyone!  Today is Super Joy Loves Her Super Friends Day (on the 14th of every month) so don’t miss the giveaway at the end of this post!  Thank you for being part of Joy’s Life!

Welcome to my fridge.  I made some Washi Magnets!

I haven’t cut magnets with my Cricut since I made my Cricut Vinylology DVD.  I forgot how much fun it is to make them!  In the DVD, I teach you how to cut magnet material after applying vinyl.  Today, I tried something different!  I covered some magnet material with Washi tape and cut it!  Fun!

That’s a photo of my first two babies when Super Husband and I graduated from college.  I got my undergrad and he got his Master’s degree.  Some people go to college, get married and have kids.  I got married, had kids and went to college.  It’s much easier when you do it in the first order.  LOL!  ~~ We have a word of the day calendar.  I kept chevron because of it’s popularity in crafting.  I thought the calendar was giving a crafty shout out. 😉

It’s fun to create with a variety of things.

Today I’m using my Cricut Expression 2, the Cricut Lite Cartridge – Bump in the Night cartridge (for the mustache), Washi Tape from Freckled Fawn, a few stamps from my Sweet Popsicle Puns stamp set and White Magnet Material.

Do you love mustache crafts?
I made some cute mustaches using the Cricut Lite Billionaire cartridge here and a Silhouette Cameo mustache project here.

This time, I cut the magnet material before adding washi tape.

I use the Cricut Deep Cut Blade Housingand set it to 6, pressure 5, speed 3 and multi cut 4 to cut magnet material.  That’s what works best for me.  After I removed the cut mustache, I added pink striped washi tape to it.  Using a craft knife, I cut around the mustache to trim the edges.  I decided that I prefer the way I show you next.

You can also tape the magnet material before cutting it.

Adding the Washi tape to the magnet material before cutting it is much easier.

Cutting Washi Taped Magnet Material

To cut magnet material that has washi tape already applied use the same settings I mentioned above.  One helpful hint about magnet material is that it is easiest to work with if it is flat.  If you buy the roll I link to in this post (which is the kind that I’m using) then it will come to you rolled up and in a box.  Unroll it and lay it flat with some heavy books on top of it.  After a few days, the magnet will be as flat as a pancake and ready to lay down on your mat.  YAY!  That’s what you want it to do. 😉  It’s hardly worth trying to cut rolled up magnet…just sayin’.

P.S.  Don’t have a Cricut?  Ya don’t need one to do this.  Just cut out shapes with scissors or a craft knife. 😉

Stamping on Washi Tape…a work in progress.

I had to give it a try…stamping on washi tape.  I used a white pigment ink.  The washi is sort of slick when it comes to stamping, so keep steady.  It turned out really cute with the stamping but I’m not sure how long it takes to dry.  One of mine made it all the way to the fridge with no problem.  I stuck my fingers all over the other one and the ink rubbed right off.  My ruling?  It’s worth a try but give it some long term drying time. 😉

I also used washi tape in this video.

Time for a Giveaway!!

Awesome!  Freckled Fawn.com has donated a $25 gift certificate to one winner.  YAY!  Just leave a comment telling me how you’d use washi tape in your crafty world.  I’ll announce the winner on this post on August 24, 2012.

  30. I don’t have any washi tape yet and I have millions of ideas. The first idea would be to create a background underneath a die cut image(a heart maybe) and pop that layer up on foam tape.

  31. Jeannette Butler says:

    While I’ve HEARD about Washi tape, I’ve never touched it or worked with it. I would LOVE to learn how to use it though! I have a grandson and a granddaughter that I’m making scrapbooks for plus doing my son’s graduation from Air Force Basic Training AND my younger daughter’s wedding albums! I’m sure I could put all of it to good use somewhere!!! Thanks so much for sharing your ideas and expertise on your website, in DVD and on Facebook!

  32. I haven’t tried it yet but how about jazzing up paper clips or holding close little (candy) gift bags. Of course I use washi tape in my smash book and holding sweet notes to hubby in his lunch box. I never thought to stamp on it. What a great idea, thanks Super Joy. Thanks for the chance to win $25 gift card. Kim B.

  35. Washi tape is so much fun to use. I love to use it on cards mainly. It is also cute to make little mini pennants with it too. I only have a few rolls, so it would be fun to add more to my collection. I will be trying the magnet idea. Thanks!

  36. I love the versitality of washi tape. I love using it to create banners on cards and to stick down ideas in my Smash book! Your idea is cute but I’m just not a moustache kind of girl.

  40. CathyinMN says:

    Cute magnets! I wouldn’t have thought of using Washi tape on magnets — you do think of such unique things. Thanks so much for the chance to win! If I had Washi tape, I would use it for background interest on cards and scrapbook layouts, or as a border on one or more sides of cards and/or layouts.

  41. KSilvia2007 says:

    Awesome idea! That tape is so addictive! I was thinking of using it to cover the wood frame of a corkboard instead of painting it. Love how it’s so easy to peel off and restick!

  42. I’be never used Washi tape but I’ve seen some beautiful things on pinterest. I think I would start using it on cards.

  43. I have yet to use Washi tape but I’d love to use it in mixed media or altering other items.

  44. Nichole C says:

    I have never used and only recently heard of Washi tape. I think it would be great to use on cards. I try to make all my personal cards during the year and I am always looking for new ways to decorate and make them special. Thanks for the chance to win.

  45. I have yet to try using washi tape, but I’m loving all the project ideas I’m seeing with it. I want to learn to make more layouts and I see that using Washi Tape gives them that extra flair. So I would use them on a lot of layouts and my Smash books. Smooches…

  46. sbmmhoover says:

    I loooooooooove washi tape! It is so fun to add it to my envelopes (to close them and for fun decorations)….I can’t wait to get some of that woodgrain tape!
