DIY Floppy Disk Coasters

This is not really a DIY, it's more like "giving a new purpose to something you don't use". As an IT student I love almost everything related to computers and technology.  I have found my old floppy disks a few days ago and I really didn't want to throw them away so I had to find a new way of using them. I came across this amazing idea online (using them as coasters) so I wanted to share it with you. It might be too geeky to most of you, but I guess there are people like myself who will find this kind of using floppy disks as brilliant. You can use different colors, but I liked the combination of black and white so I will use those two. 

P.S. If you are already following me via GFC don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin as well.
