Washi-Tape Contest


I am super excited to participate in this Month's Pinspired and Rewired Blog Series contest. This month's Theme is my latest craft passion; Washi Tape.

For this contest, the project must be inspired by a Washi Tape project found in Pinterest. The Linky Party Contest will be held from May 18 -23.




The Hosts are:

Southern Lovely, Family Ever After, Ginger Snap Crafts, and The Gunny Sack.

My project inspiration came from a Washi Tape Tile Coaster project I pinned from DesignsDreamsJapan.com



I modified the project by creating sweet Cupcake and Ice Cream Cone images from Washi Tape which I applied to the center of each tile.
Let's begin.....

Materials:
  1. 4 - 4" Square Ceramic Tiles; purchased at Home Depot for 16 cents each.
  2. Washi Tape
  3. Scrapbook Paper - Photo Burlap (design name).
    I was fortunate to find this paper at Michaels, which resembles an ice cream cone's texture.
  4. Contact Paper
  5. Tracing Paper
  6. Mod Podge/Foam Brush
  7. Single Hole Punch
  8. Ribbon 2" Reach Punch by McGill, purchased at ACMoore.
  9. Pair of Tweezers
  10. Polyurethane - I used Minwax Clear Satin
  11. Small Paint Brush
  12. Self Stick Heavy Duty Felt Circles
  13. Graphics. I found the Cupcake and Ice Cream Cone images online.
Instructions:
  • Clean your tiles with bathroom cleaner to get rid of any dust. Let the tiles dry completely.
  • Start adding your Washi Tape across the tiles.
  • Trace your Graphics using the Tracing and Contact papers by creating layers. Lay the contact paper with backing facing up; add tracing paper and finally your graphics.
  • Flip Contact paper over. Apply Washi-tape to cover your traced graphics. For the Cupcakes and Ice Cream Scoops I used Washi Tape. For the Cones, I used the Scrapbook paper since I did not have any brown Washi Tape.
  • Cut your graphics around the traced lines. For the Cupcakes and Ice Cream Cones I cut each section individually separating the scoops from the cones; the frosting from the cupcakes.
  • For the Cupcake Sprinkles and Ice Cream Toppings, I applied Washi Tape to a piece of Contact Paper and punched the pieces using the Single Hole and Ribbon Punches. To separate these small pieces from the contact paper, I used the tweezers.
  • Begin attaching your graphics in sections. The cones were applied using Mod Podge. The Ice Cream Scoops, Cupcakes and Frosting were simply taped to the tiles.
  • Apply the Sprinkles and Toppings randomly over the Scoops and Frostings.
  • For extra durability, apply 2-3 coats of Polyurethane all over the tiles. Let dry between coats.
  • To protect your furniture from the tile's harsh bottom, I applied a felt circle to all four corners.

And here they are...


I now have a cute set of Tile Coasters, perfect for those Summer dinner gatherings. I hope you give this tutorial a try.

Happy Pinning!!!
