Okay, so maybe my title is a little bit corny, but this project is not. I happened to find this frame at a local Dollar Tree store, and immediately, I thought of all the interest in printer trays and that I could probably do something similar with this. I bought a few and headed home to see what I could create.
This tray was done very simply, just so I could see what things could be used inside of the glass. I used regular pattern paper, layered them with stickers, and added chipboard pieces.
It was thick enough to hold chipboard shapes without giving me any trouble to put the backing back on. The backing itself contains two different hangers and an easel for easy display options.
They only come in black, but with the many colors of Fusion spray paint, I was able to paint this one white for use in a Christmas one I am hoping to get to this week.
Using this collection from Teresa Collins. I plan on leaving the glass off of this one so that I can load it with thicker goodies, such as my holiday yo-yos and those popular paper rosettes.
They were, of course, only a dollar. And at this price, I plan on making them for all of the holidays, just so I can have something to put on my bookshelf. I might even make a few for gifts. How cute would this be with school themed products and the teacher's name in the small space at the bottom?
