Washi Tape Coasters

Let’s talk about Washi tape. Do you use it? Are you one of those people that ran to Target the second you heard it was available there? I’ll admit, I am one of those people! I’ve been eying it online since last Fall but couldn’t think of anything to do with it. Now I have all sorts of washi tape crafts planned. I’ll start off by sharing with you my new washi tape coasters. They were inspired by this pinterest find and this adorable washi tape bunny from My Sister’s Suitcase.
Like I said, I ran to Target a few weeks ago. Ok, I didn’t run but I strapped the kids into their car seats as fast as I could and headed to Target hoping there would be some washi tape left. We raced down to the office supply aisle only to find out my Target didn’t have it in stock yet. *tear*. There I was feeling silly that I drove all the way to Target during what should have been nap time for a craft product! I considered driving to Super Target in the next town over but decided I would chalk that quest up as a fail and check back in a few days. Luckily I go to Target more often than I care to admit and found it at my next visit. I even found some at Michael’s yesterday! I think it’s safe to say I have a slight addiction to washi tape right now.

In case you’re wondering, this is what you’re looking for at Michael’s. I found mine near the registers.
These were so incredibly easy to make. They took me maybe 20 minutes. I made them out of the same tiles I used in the last diy coaster tutorial I shared. They’re very inexpensive (16 cents a piece at Lowes) and make a great gift. Think Mother’s Day gift idea!
To make them I started on the top left corner so that my stripes would be diagonal. I wrapped the tape a little over the bottom then repeated until the entire tile was finished. I didn’t worry about a pattern and made them all a little different. I then finished them with a coat of Mod Podge. If you’re worryed about them sticking together you can use a varnish instead. I’ve never had a problem with the Mod Podge though. Once that dried I glued felt onto the bottom of each coaster.

I love how colorful they are. They’re my favorite coasters yet!

What’s are some of your favorite washi tape crafts?

    Crystal– these turned out so cute! Thanks for the shout out to my washi tape bunny :) I got that same purple tape at Michael’s and I love it! I’m actually heading back tonight to get a few of the other colors they had. I think my sister and I are officially addicted to washi tape! hahaha! Thanks again! Love the coaster idea. I’ll be including it in my roundup of washi tape ideas this Friday to end our “Washi Week” :)

    WOW! Beyond gorgeous! I haven’t bought a single roll of Washi tape. Can you believe it?! I need to join in the Washi tape craze! Thanks for sharing at oopsey daisy!

    I hit the mother load at the last craft convention I went to in Portland! I think I bought one of every color and print! I love putting it on gift bags and making little banners on cards…ideas are endless!
    Enjoy it…on everything!

    ahhh! I love these–I too am going on a washi tape frenzy. I went to my Michaels the other week and they didn’t have any–I think the ladies just had no idea what I was talking about–off to hunt for more washi tape at Michaels!!!

  5. says

    I am in love with these! I ran to Target when I saw those tapes! My area doesn’t have the yellows though :( Thanks for the tip about the ones at Michaels! I love using my tape in my scrapbooking for sure.

  7. says

    I didn’t know Target now carries washi tape – I see a trip in my future! These coasters are adorable – I love the comboof colors and patterns you chose.

  8. Debra Kapellakis says

    You did a good job. These coasters are pretty. I like the bunny even more, thank you for sharing the link to “My Sister’s Suitcase”. I don’t have washi tape or a way to get it but if I did… ;D

      I found the tape at Hobby Lobby in the scrapbooking department, It wasn’t easy, I had a hard time finding someone who knew what I was talking about.

  9. says

    I love this tutorial not only because the tiles are beyond adorable, but because you showed me where I can finally find the washi tape at my local craft store- THANK YOU!!! I have been wanting to try this forever but couldn’t figure out where I could get it outside the internet.

    Also, I am a new linky tool follower!
    Have a great weekend!

  10. says

    Ooooh!!!! I love these!! I just got some washi tape…I ran as fast as I could to my Target too…and so I’m looking for fun projects to actually use it now! I had no idea Michaels had it; now I know where I need to go on Monday! Thanks for showing it in the packaging! I’m pinning this so I can make some too! I’d be so thrilled if you would share these at my party if you get a minute:


  11. says

    They look so good, Crystal! I will have to give this a try. Thanks for the idea!

    My weekly Say G’day Linky Party is on now and I would be so thrilled if you could join in and link up this great post!

    Best wishes for a fabulous weekend!

    oooh, these are GORGEOUS – so very pretty! I may just makeover my boring glass coaster because I don’t think I’ve ever seen plain coaster tiles at South African hardware shops.

    And yes, I’m a washi tape fanatic – I have about 4 crafts on my blog (look under crafty projectson the navigation)

  13. Beth H says

    I found some at Walmart in their isle with the scrapbooking stuff. 97 cents a roll!! I picked up one of each color they had!! I also have found some cute stamps there in the .97 bins!

  14. Kim says

    Super cute! I just pinned this and am totally planning on making a couple sets for Mother’s Day! I love Washi Tape

  15. says

    Firstly, I love your blog. From the look of it to the posts- great job! I’m a new follower. ;D Secondly this washi tape craze I’ve seen lately never ceases to amaze me! These coasters are awesome! I could see doing special ones for different occasions like the 4th of July etc. What a great use of an every day product. Way to go! I would love it if you would stop by and link up to my debut Sweet Sharing Mondays (new linky, every Monday)! http://saynotsweetanne.com/2012/sweet-sharing-monday/

    Those coasters are so pretty! That’s quite a collection of Washi tape you have there. I definitely need to add it to my list of things to buy.

  19. Robin M. says

    These are so awesome….I have seen many washi tape craft ideas and keep telling myself I want to see what all the hype is all about but I don’t always have time so when I do, I find I have a better chance to make an item if I can run out and grab what I need…now that I know Target carries it, I am going to have to jump in and give it a whirl. :)

    Thank you for sharing!

  20. says

    I was just at Michael’s yesterday looking for Washi tape and am going to Joann’s this afternoon searching. I LOVE what you did with these coasters! I’m buying some for my pendants that I make – to try something new….but I’m also going to have to add these to my list. I LOVE them! Found you over at Fingerprints on the Fridge! I’d love for you to come link this up at my Tuesday Time Out Party – open all week!

    Love this idea- simple, neat, and fun! :) I’m curious- does the liquid from condensation on a cold drink not cause a problem? Maybe the ModPodge helps with this…

  22. says

    these are amazing!! I’m gonna try them soon. Was just wondering, because where I live in doesn’t have mod podge, or I’ve never heard of it before. Is there a substitute for this? Like clear glue or something? Would definitely share this on my blog when I do this! Thanks for sharing :)

  23. Andrea says

    I admit, I only discovered washi tape a few weeks ago. I’d never even heard of it (gasp!). I bought a bunch from Pick Your Plum and I love the colors and the bird patterned one I got.

    I just have absolutely no idea what it’s supposed to be used for! Now I have one project, super cute coasters! Be sure to post more washi tape crafts, I’ve got a lot of tape to use up!

  24. Julia says

    Very effective! Do you know what you could use to seal them so the coaster copes with a hot cup without the cup sticking?
