Washi Tape Coasters

Hello everyone! It's Barbara from Chase the Star! In the warmer months I like to decorate in fun vibrant shades especially when entertaining, so I dug up an old set of inexpensive coasters and updated them with paint and washi tape to give them a new look for summer!

This basic set of coasters have been with us for a few years, they've worked very well!

In order to give them a new look I gathered my materials:

Washi Tape (I used 4 rolls)

Acrylic paint

2 Foam applicator brushes

Exacto knife

Mod Podge (I used the "Dishwasher Safe" formula)

Paint, Mod Podge and Washi Tape to update coasters via Chase the Star for Saved By Love Creations

Step 1:

First things first, always start with a clean surface! I wiped the coasters and holder clean. Using one of the applicator brushes I gave the coasters a few coats of the paint. I went with 'Vivid Orange' by Folkart, it's so bright--I love it!

Step 2:

Next, I applied the washi tape in a repetetive pattern to the top and bottom of each coaster, and trimmed the excess off with the exacto knife.

Step 3:

Lastly I added a couple of coats of Mod Podge to seal the Washi Tape in. I chose the 'Dishwasher Safe' formula because although I doubt I'll run the coasters through the dishwasher, I'm sure they will get their fair share of moisture, after all, that's their job!

I used the same process for the coaster holder.

I think this will make a great addition to my outdoor parties this summer!

Do you have an old set of coasters that can use a little love? If you don't, you can pick some up at the thrift store, or any other discount store!

Apply strips of washi tape to scrap white cardboard or card stock.  I used the cover flap for a scrapbook paper pad.  Cut out your star template and tape on top of washi tape stripes where you want your cut out to be.  Cut along template edge to get a washi tape striped star.

Make Washi Tape Jewelry and Charms

[pinit] Easy Washi Tape Earrings

Today's project is a fun, inexpensive earring tutorial using washi tape, wire and Dimensional Magic by Mod Podge.  I am in love with these.  I wore them on a recent getaway and got so many compliments.  A random lady in a boutique ordered a pair when I told her I made them!  Think about all the washi tape prints and colors.  You could make a pair for every outfit or occasion.  You can use them as charms for embellishing paper crafts, cards, and jewelry projects of all kinds.

Let's get started!

SUPPLIES:

WashiTapeEarrings5

Mod Podge Dimensional Magic

Circle punch or other shape you want for your charms (you could also cut by hand)

Washi Tape

White Card Stock

Dremel for creating hole or glue on bail (hanging mechanism)

Jewelry Wire - I used 20 gauge copper artistic wire and 20 gauge artistic wire silver coated

Wire cutter

Round nose and flat nose pliers

TUTORIAL:

Apply tape to front and back or card stock.  Line strips of tape up so that there is no space between them.  Line up patterns for seamless look if your hole punch is bigger than the width of the tape.  Punch out shapes.

Lay shapes on flat, protect surface.  I like to use this spikey tray I got at Michaels (pretty sure it is Martha Stewart).  That way if I put too much Dimensional Magic on, it will runs off the side and collect in the bottom of the tray, sparing my piece from becoming a big blob.  Apply Dimensional Magic starting in the center, then pulling out to the edge of the shape with the tip of the bottle.  Let sit for about 20 minutes, then come back and remove any air bubbles with a toothpick or with your fingernail.  Then let dry overnight, flip them over and do the other side.  If you want a flat side, you can just brush on Mod Podge with a brush to seal instead of doming both sides.

Use as charms, make earrings, magnets, embellish your paper crafts and more.

I played with wire using a jig from Bead Landing.  I plan on sharing a tutorial on making your own earring findings like I did for these.

To see how I made them, check out my Duck Tape Rosette Earrings I showed you last week.  Follow those steps using washi tape in place of the Duck Tape and seal before the adding jewery findings step.

I sealed using Mod Podge Antique for an aged look on my Tim Holts Tissue Tape pair.  Any paper sealer will do.  Just brush it on and let dry.
