Project Ideas: Coaster Sets.

Today I have a couple project ideas to share with you using one of our regular coaster sets - but using a few fun new techniques to embellish and decorate them!

If you have a smart phone you are probably familiar with the Instagram App. Instagram is a fun way to take, edit and share photos with friends, but you don't want to just let all your great photos live on your phone.  You should also print them out and use them on pieces around your house to enjoy as well. For this particular project we used the Walgreen's App to send our photos from our Instagram account directly to our local Walgreen's store - where they will print out your photos to the 4x4" size.

Since the photos are already edited and sized perfectly to fit the coaster set - creating this project was then so much easier! You can find the complete instructions for the Instagram Coaster Set here.

Another product that is very popular right now is Washi Tape. It is versatile, easy to use, and the best part is that it comes in a huge selection of colors and styles. For this sample Megan simply taped the Washi Tape directly to the coaster (using a Washi Tape pack from My Mind's Eye that comes with all the styles of Washi Tape you see below) and then sealed the tape to the coasters. You can find a project sheet for these Washi Tape Coasters here.
