Ever since the Happy Things blog giveaway earlier this year, people have been asking, “Where do can you buy washi tapes?” I got that question one toooooo many times I actually wanted to put it on our FAQ‘s section! I also get asked the same thing over and over on Instagram I actually wanted to build a separate section of Instagram FAQ’s on this site 😛
On the other hand, Mansy of Hey Kessy and I would meet from time to time to do some random arts and crafts or visit art events for fun. I mentioned to her how much Googly readers would ask about washi tapes. I’m pretty sure that if you’re a crafter or a washi addict like me, you already know about Hey Kessy. Hey Kessy also sells bakers’ twine and decorative straws. However, aside from being an online shop, Hey Kessy also aims to build a community that fosters creativity through its various workshops. Speaking of workshops, you might want to check out the Hey Kessy Messy Washi Party I attended last year 🙂
What are washi tapes? Washi tapes are decorative multi-purpose tapes. We initially wanted to show you the many uses of washi tape but you might just get overwhelmed! So, Mansy decided to share with us how to make a washi coaster while I played photographer & calligrapher on this post 🙂
How to make your own washi coaster? You’ll be needing the following:
a bottle of sealant (just mix equal parts of glue & water)
your favorite washi tape!!
The reason why you have to make sure it’s dust-free is to ensure that the washi sticks to the base neatly.
Mansy says it’s important to cut the washi tape this way so that you won’t end up having funny edges on your washi tape.
…and ta-daaaah…You now have your washi coaster!
But wait, there’s more! (…and I officially sound like a home TV shopping host). Hey Kessy is giving away 3 sets of DIY coasters which includes a washi tape, 3 cork coasters and a foam! 🙂 To join the contest, get clicking below:

I badly want washi tapes. I only buy those that look like it at divisoria. I cannot afford one but this can give me a chance and better because it comes with a cork coaster.
I really wanna win washi tapes because I know that it will be very useful to me since I love scrap booking 🙂 I hope to win your giveaway 🙂
I joined this giveaway because my daughter would love to have her own washi tapes too 🙂
Our family recently moved to a new house. DIY washi coasters would liven up our upcoming house warming party (and impress visitors too!). It would be super if I won the giveaway. 🙂
