So this is how I spent another hour being creative the other day...making my leetle sister and her soon-to-be new husband a little wedding gift of sorts! Again, this is all part of Michaels' CRE8TIME Challenge where I'm trying to spend one hour a day over 8 days being creative! It's been a lot of fun and very relaxing for me, I can't begin to tell you how nice it is when you set aside a little bit of time to do something you enjoy...ummm, it's REALLY nice!
I found a set of 4 pretty ceramic coasters at Michaels last week and thought they would look super cute if I dressed them up in some yummy Washi Tape...Washi Tape Coasters? Oh my, yes please. So, off to the tape aisle I headed and bought myself a ridiculous amount of it. It's just so pretty, I couldn't help myself (if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you know just how much I bought, I need an intervention!) Michaels has so many designs in stock that you could really go wild when you decorate these. I thought the two tapes I used would be perfect for my sister and her fiancé.
Here's the how-to...they are super easy, pinky swear!
Washi Tape Coasters
Set of ceramic coaster (ceramic tiles would work too!)
Clear acrylic Sealer
Wipe your ceramic coasters with a damp cloth and let dry. Place strips of Washi Tape slightly longer than the coaster next to one another making sure if there is a pattern on your tape you are matching it as best you can. Try to get the Washi Tape as close together as you can so no part of the bare coaster is showing. Remember, Washi Tape is removable and re-stickable so you can always fix it if you mess up!
Once you've completely covered the coaster, press your Washi Tape down so it is nice and smooth on the surface. Flip it over on a cutting mat and, using your X-acto knife, cut the excess Washi Tape as close to the edges as possible.
At this point your coasters will look pretty much done and they totally could be BUT if you plan on using them for drinking glasses that may sweat you will want to protect them!
Or to keep for yourself...they are super cute, aren't they!
Remember to keep adding your CRE8TIME Challenge projects to their gallery here! And keep your creativity flowing, it's fun to reclaim our creative side by spending one hour a day doing something fun like this!!
Thanks for stopping by today!
