Washi Fun or hate? Take on the trend or let it fly right by you? I have to admit that when washi first came out I didn't really jump right in, but after getting my first roll from a friend and trying it out I have to admit it's become a bit of an addiction. I love how easy it is to use and the numerous possibilities that it brings to my scrapping. This week we shared different ideas for using washi over on the Practical Scrappers blog. Although I would say that the majority of my washi use has been for layouts, I decided to take a different route for this challenge and create some coasters for my scrap room. I had some left over tiles from a different project easily picked up at your local home improvement store so I decided to put them to use and create something happy just for me.

I love how super easy they were to make. I just started layering different pieces of tape across the tiles. I finished them off with a layer of modge podge on top to seal the tape and keep the ends from pulling up. This also creates a good water barrier for spills or when your cup sweats and leaves that ring of moisture. Notice those happy colors too?? Yes, in  a houseful of boys I don't often get to have girly, happy things around so I made sure to go with the bright colors and fun flowery pattern.

Come check out the other ideas from the other creative gals. You won't be sorry. It may just inspire you to break out the washi yourself.
