Coffee Lover Home Decor Project
March 17, 2021
Dana here to share a home decor project for all you coffee lovers out there! I can't start my day without a cup of java! I love creating home decor projects. And Clear Scraps printer trays are so much fun and easy to decorate to match your own style and decor.. You can choose from many different styles. Click Here
I'm using Clear Scraps new coffee mug shaker! Isn't it cute? Click Here
I chose Echo park's Coffee paper collection to decorate my printer tray. First off I cut some strips of paper 1/4 x 12 inches. Then I took craft glue and adhered the strips of paper onto all the edges of your top frame piece. Trim off any excess paper.
Next I cut out some journaling cards to fit inside each section of my tray. Making sure of placement before gluing them to the bottom base of your printer tray, Let dry.
Now you can glue down all your other chipboard layers in place onto your printer tray. I chose to use the acrylic sheet to protect my images. But if you chose not to add the acrylic sheet, you can save it for later to use on another project. Be sure to peel off the protective film from both sides of your acrylic before adhering to your frame.
I fuzzy cut out a some of the pastries, coffee cup and latte, inked the edges, added some foam dots to the back and adhered them onto different sections on my tray. I added some glitter touches on top of pastries, latte cup. I took a coffee bean heart sticker, added pop dots to the back and adhered it above my middle section on the left side. I took a piece of twine, tied two bows and attached each of the coffee flag stickers on top of my twine, on the bottom right section of my tray. How you decorate yours is totally up to you! Here's some examples of how I decorated mine.
Now we'll decorate our shaker coffee mug. I cut a journaling sentiment card and glued it onto my bottom shaker piece. I trimmed around the edges with my xacto knife. Then I took my distress tool and smoothed around the edges. Next I glued my next chipboard shaker layers on top. I filled my shaker with some beads and coffee bean shapes. Peel the protective film off both sides of your acrylic shaker shape and adhere on top of your previous layer. Then adhere the top shaker piece. Leave your shaker undistured until it's throughly dried before shaking. This will prevent your shaker elements to get stuck to the sides. To add some sparkle to the middle section of my shaker coffee mug, I brushed on some Luna paste and then added some sparkle ink over the top.
Lastly adhere your shaker piece to the top of your printer tray!
