New Wives Club #23: turn colourful masking tape into fridge magnets with a little bit of crafting magic
Hi everyone, I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday! It’s been a while since I posted a New Wives Club feature, I’m really sorry about that but I do try to find ideas to share that I really love rather than any old crafting project – and as such, I don’t always find enough to do one a week at the moment.
Colourful masking tape (also know as washi tape) – don’t you just love it? What a wonderful invention, taking some that’s practical and mainly used by boys for DIY and transforming it into something so pretty. I recently bought myself a pack which contained a couple of different block colours, but there are so many designs out there with all kinds of patterns, spots, florals and so on that I would like to get a few more.
I must admit though, they are one of those things I find myself collecting and then wondering what I’m going to do with them. Well here’s one thing you could do with those lovely rolls of masking tape – turn them into magnets! My fridge is in desperate needs of being covered with some photos but I don’t have any magnets that I like…perhaps this is the solution?
It is so wonderful being allowed to share other handmade wedding projects from my readers. Today’s exquisitely created ‘save the dates’ are made a Creative Designer, so those of us looking at them thinking ‘I wish I could be that creative on the computer’ – this lady is skilled and talented and it’s what she does for a living.
Jess, the bride-to-be, used a badge maker to create the front of the magnets, and attached a magnet to the back. I love this idea that your family and friends can stick it onto their fridge at home to remind them.
On top of making the magnets, Jess also designed and made the packaging! She bought the card and other materials from Hobbycraft – don’t they look sweet all parceled up?
