I am a bit of a washi tape hoarder. Whenever I see a cute roll of washi at the craft store, I am compelled to buy it even if I don’t have a specific use for it. Last fall I picked up two rolls of super cute beer themed tapes, but they have been sitting in my craft room unused ever since. A few weeks ago I watched a video from Karen Kavett about different ways to use washi tape, and she totally inspired this project. I busted out the neglected tape and made a set of cute DIY washi tape beer pins.
I made this quick video to show you how to turn washi tape into in you cute pins. I publish two videos a week on my YouTube channel, so click over and subscribe.
Two tips about the materials I used for these pins. First, I chose to use sturdy plastic as the base for my pins. I wanted something that I was able to easily cut through, but that wasn’t too bendy. If the finished pins bend too much, the Dimensional Magic will crack. Paper and thin plastic are not sturdy enough to prevent them from bending, so find something a little more stable. Second, I chose to use glitter Dimensional Magic because I love the sparkle, but regular Dimensional Magic will allow you to see the washi tape underneath more clearly, You just have to decide which look you are going for.
If you make your own pins, PLEASE share a photo on social media and tag me (@madincrafts). I love to see your version of my projects!
