Last weekend, I played with washi tapes and mod podge. You might be seeing a lot of arts and crafts in Pinterest using these materials.

Washi tapes are decorative tapes that originated in Japan while mod podge is a sealer glue finish.

I want to change the design of the mouse pad that was given to me few years ago. So I gathered my washi tapes, mod podge, X-acto knife and the mouse pad that I want to decorate.

Since i’ll be using a pastel-colored washi tape, I decided to cover the surface of the mouse pad with white textile paint. This would ensure that I won’t see any trace of the previous design beneath the washi tape. I placed a kitchen towel beneath the mouse pad to prevent the paint to smudge on my work area. I also used a hard brush in applying the paint to add texture.one c

After I painted the entire surface, I used a blower to speed up the drying time.one d

Once the surface is dry, I designed it with washi tape!one f

I trimmed the edges using X-Acto knife.

After decorating, I sealed the design by brushing the surface with mod podge.

I let it dry overnight before using my newly-designed mouse pad! Yehey!!!


Aside from the mouse pad, I also washified my phone charger and my Mom’s plant pot. 🙂


What do you think of my simple washified projects? 🙂


About Audrey

I am not a typical “girl-next-door”, But I am striving to be a woman of valor. I cannot turn the heads of many people, But I can touch their lives and still be humble. To please my Creator, that is my main goal, To let Him mold me, for me to fit in my role. My other wish is to have a pure soul, And to have a zealous heart like a burning coal. Strength and honor must be my clothing, Purity and honesty, for me is an important thing. To be a woman of principles, that’s what I’m preparing, To make God proud of me as I keep on dazzling. I may not be as perfect as what I want to be, A soldier in the battle that is what I can see. I’ll keep on fighting to solve life’s mystery, To win the battle is the best reward for me!
