Video Tutorial: How to Make Kawaii Paper Magnets

Back in July, I shared a picture of a magnet I made by sticking a cute Hakuouki art card on a magnet ad I got in the mail on my Instagram feed. I was really surprised by the positive response I got! I’m really passionate about reusing/recycling things when possible, and it was really nice to see people interested in the whole idea of kawaii paper magnets. That’s why, for this week’s video, I decided to try my hand at a DIY video tutorial on how to make kawaii paper magnets yourself!


Don’t worry if you’re not much of a crafter! These magnets are super easy to make if you have some cute paper lying around (I use origami paper and cutouts from magazines). After that, all you need is scissors, tape, and magnets. If you don’t get free magnets in your mailbox like I do (the last one I got was advertising Uber Eats, haha), you can always buy some from a craft shop, dollar store, or Amazon. Some, like these, already have adhesive on them, so you don’t even need to glue the paper on!

If you make any magnets using this tutorial, I would love to see them! You can share them with me on Instagram or Twitter. Happy crafting!
