Washi Tape Easter Egg Magnets

There isn't much that I love more than when Spring starts to arrive.  Flowers and trees start to bloom, the sun comes out and everything becomes colorful again.


While digging around in my supplies the other day, I decided I wanted to make some fun magnets to brighten up our fridge and Lucy's magnet board.  So I went over to my washi tape board and picked out a bunch of fun bright colors, which included some fun patterns from Artsyville.  Then I taped them onto plain white paper.


Then I took these glass pieces and traced them over the washi tape so that I knew where to cut.  I could have just done this with my Silhouette, but because I didn't plan on it before, I had all these white gaps between the tape and I didn't want any of that on my eggs.  So instead I did it the old fashion way, I used ::gasp:: SCISSORS.


And as you can see here, I cut them out. 


I used Mod Podge to glue the paper to the glass and then I hot glued the magnets to the backs.  In hindsight, I should have used stronger glue because once Dexter got ahold of these he ripped off the backs.  


And now I have these fun bright colored magnets!

  1. Love these! I was wondering how those glass beads would work for magnets! I have a TON leftover from our wedding and need magnets. Where did you get the little magnets on the back?

  2. I think I might make these for my office! I like bright colors to spice things up in my drab white office.
