You all have certainly been wowed by the Dovecraft Washi Tape designs on social media (which we are thrilled about!) so we thought it was about time to give you guys some crafty ideas on how to use them! From feeling magical to motivated, these mermaid and travel Washi Tapes are seriously dreamy (especially with their gold foil and holographic effects!)


Today Maxine is going to show you how to create a money pot that will be perfect for saving money for your next adventure, along with a few crafty tips and tricks after…



What you Need

Dovecraft Travel Washi Tape

 Coffee Tin

How to Make

1. Wash out the coffee tin and dry.

2. Use a craft knife to cut out a slit in the lid. Ensure it is big enough for coins and notes to be pushed through.


3. Cover the lid with your chosen Dovecraft Travel Washi Tape design. Flip over and recut the hole.


4. Paint your tin white to ensure the Washi Tape stands out. Leave to dry and carefully wrap your Washi Tape design around the tin, making sure to overlap the strips slightly to avoid any gaps.


Now your tin is ready to be filled with money for your next journey!


You can also get upcycling with these Washi Tapes to create a statement home decor piece! Maxine has alternated the Dovecraft Mermaid Washi Tape designs to make this ‘&’ really pop.

Keeping with the upcycling theme, you could transform an everyday frame with a mystical touch using the mermaid Washi Tape. Maxine has used different designs for each side to really make this an eye catching item.
