Clear Scraps Printer's Tray -- Happy Halloween

Hi there everyone!  Laura here!  Who's ready for fall??!!  I sure am!  I love crafting

home decor for fall!  I'm sharing a fun printer's tray with you today!

Clear Scraps has so many different tray shapes, it's fun to play with the different

types!  They even have a heart shaped tray, you can find all the choices HERE.

For this project I used the Clear Scraps Rectangle/Square Printer's Tray Frame.

These are really easy to put together too.  One of the things I like, is you can

customize each panel of the frame.  If you want you could use just one sheet of

12x12 paper, or you could paint the solid back piece, which is a little easier.

Here is the back view of the frame, just so you can see how I pieced all

the different pieces of paper to create the look you see on the front.

Once I had all these pieces glued in place on the raw chipboard frame,

then I turned it over and glued it to the solid 12x12 chipboard base piece.

The next step is to glue the second raw chipboard frame right onto this one.

That will give you the depth to add layers inside the tray, or add sequins

to create a shaker look inside the tray.  I like to add a lot of layers,

This is the tray before I put the final layers on, I used foam tape to pop up some

of the elements (pumpkins, bats, the banner), then added sequins and the last

two layers of the tray.  First the 12x12 sheet of acrylic (make sure to remove

the protective plastic from BOTH sides!) and then finally the last frame piece,

which I had painted with black acrylic paint, and then let dry before hand.

To add to the depth of the tray, I sometimes layer a few things on the OUTSIDE.

You can see the Happy Halloween, the "boo" banner, and the broom are on top

of the tray for a nice little extra something.

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you are inspired to try your own
