Hey there Clear Scraps friends, it's Pinky today and I am excited to share my latest project with you, this Rectangular/Square Printer Tray, and exactly how I created it!! I recently went I vacation, and decided to use the pictures for this and a new set of vacation papers I found.
I started out by taking the Acrylic (second to top) piece and using the 6" Groovy Heart Mascil- Stencil over the ONE rectangle area, I took the protective film off and used the chipboard top layer as my guideline, then used paint mixed with Modeling Paste and a sparkle knife to create the groovy heart on the acrylic.
While the Modeling Paste and paint dried and started trimming and cutting out the pieces for the inside of the Rectangle/Square Printer Tray. I laid it all out as I wanted to create it.
I trimmed out the pattered paper and adhered each piece into place on the bottom solid chipboard piece, there is a total of 5 layers, the solid bottom chipboard piece, 2 chipboard "window frame" layers (to place sequins or glitter/buttons etc...), then an acrylic layer, then one more chipboard cover "window frame" piece.
Then I took the cover chipboard piece and painted it in hot pink and orange colors.
While that dried I took the TWO (yes TWO) chipboard "window" pieces and adhered them over the solid base. I used Beacon Zip Dry of course.
How I adhered the chipboard: Apply a thin line around the entire bottom of the chipboard window piece including each panel, press firmly into place, hold 30 seconds to ensure seal.
Then add sequins or glitter or buttons, whatever you like to place inside. Now you might not be able to tell but here is my FIRST mistake! On the top chipboard window I glued the wrong side!!!! So I had to adhere the bottom after the top glue dried and try to peel some off. So you will see an extra bit of glue there.
I peeled the acrylic protective film off and adhere it to the top of the chipboard layers.
Now here is where I made mistake NUMBER TWO! haha
I painted the WRONG side of the top chipboard layer! haha I had to stop, and repaint it, then adhere it to the top! Yes I make big craft mistakes like everyone else, so I took a photo (above) to share! LOL
Anyways, that how we make it happen friends.
Have a lovely day.
