Washi Fridge Frames {A Pinterest Challenge}

When I hear it’s time for another Pinterest challenge I get a little giddy. The most difficult part is deciding what to create! This time around I decided to create some fun washi fridge frames!


If you have spent much time here at Scrap Inspired you are well aware of my love affair with washi tape! What is washi tape you ask? Well it is a thin see through tape, similar to masking tape, except that its…well…PRETTY! The best part about it is that it is easily repositionable. Perfect for making using on all kinds of scrapbooking projects, but awesome for all sorts of decor projects as well!

Didn’t those frames turn out adorable? I seriously pulled this whole collection together in under 30 min! Love a fast and easy project!

  • Design Inspiration: I loved these fun washi wall frames. For my take I wanted something more portable and kid friendly. Since I was going to be putting it on my fridge I knew my boys would move stuff around, making it difficult to put the tape directly onto the fridge.
  • Color Inspiration: I chose some washi tapes that coordinate with the colors in my home. I also wanted the colors to be bright and fun.

First, gather your materials. As the base for my frames I used these cheap plastic magnetic frames found at most drug stores. To trim the tape I am addicted to these non stick scissors by Tim Holtz (linked below). And I also grabbed a handful of my favorite washi tapes…of course!

Begin by measuring how long your tape strip needs to be. I just eye ball it. Then trim the washi tape with your scissors.

For some designs I left the washi tape it’s full width. But for this design I needed a thinner strip of tape, so I cut it down the middle. The Tim Holtz scissors make this process SO MUCH EASIER! Because they are non stick the washi tape doesn’t…well…stick to them. You certainly can use regular scissors, but you may end up a bit frustrated.

On this frame I am creating a bit of a fancier design. I want to make loops in each corner. To do this place your strips so they cross at the corners.

Trim two small strips to complete the loop on each corner.

Once each frame is decorated with washi it’s time to add pictures. Most of my frames are 4×6 but I want the photo to sit inside the washi border. So I printed my pictures at 3×5. To keep the photo floating in the middle I added a bit of washi tape to the back of the photo to hold it in the frame.

One fun washi frame complete!

How happy do those washi frames look on my fridge? Makes me want to stand in front of the fridge all day. But I shouldn’t…cause that could be dangerous! The ice cream is now calling my name.

Love the layering of two different types of washi tape! Perfect for a happy kitty photo!

    Those frames are adorable! I love that can easily change out your photos when you have a new favourite. The Washi tape added a lot of pizzazz in such a short amount of time too!
