Here Comes the Bride!
February 24, 2022
Hi Craft Friends!
Dana here! I'm back on the Clear Scraps blog today sharing a home decor project. February is the month of love! My daughter recently got married. So I thought it would be a nice surprise to make her a home decor wall hanging, to remember that special day!
For this project I'm using Clear Scraps Printer tray Heart Click Here These printer tray are one of my favorite products to use when it comes to creating home decor projects! They are so versatile and fun to decorate for any occasion.
To start you'll need some vintage white acrylic paint. Paint the front and in between all the sections of your tray. After your paint is dry, I lightly brushed over my painted surface, with some Luna paste- moonlight Rose. This gives a nice subtle glimmer. Set aside to dry.
We also will be using Clear Scraps shaker-birthday cake. Click Here I thought this shaker would be perfect to use as a wedding cake! I painted the front shaker piece and the sides, using a vanilla acrylic paint. Let dry. After your paint has dried, I added some tacky glue over the top. Then sprinkled some fine white glitter over the surface. Then set aside to dry.
The paper collection I'll be using today is from Echo Park "Our Wedding" collection. But you could any papers you already have. Take your bottom shaker piece and trace around your shape with a pencil, onto one of the papers. Cut out your shape and apply to your shaker using Beacon 3 in 1 glue. Trim around the edges with your x-acto knife and Distress all rough edges till smooth.
Now glue your next 2 chipboard pieces in place. Then chose a shaker filler of your choice. For my shaker I'm using Clear Scraps Wedding shaker filler Click Here peel off the protective film on both sides of your acrylic shaker piece and glue in place. Finish by adding your top shaker piece. Let dry throughly before shaking! I decorated my shaker cake with some mini pink pearls and a bow sticker at the top!
Now chose what papers or journaling cards you want to use to decorate the sections of your tray. In addition to decorating mine with journaling cards, I've also added a photo of the happy couple! Trace and cut out all papers and adhere to the back of your chipboard sections using Beacon glue. Add all chipboard pieces to your tray. I am eliminating the acrylic layer, but you can add it if you like. Just make sure you peel off the protective film on both sides before adhering. And add any embellishments inside before you add your acrylic layer. Then glue your top piece in place!
Now the fun part! Decorating your printer tray! I like to use a variety of ephermera, stickers, and whatever I have in my stash. I glued my shaker piece over the empty section on the far left of my tray. I fussy cut out the bride's dress and glued between the two top sections on my tray. I added a tiny flower to the sash on her dress and topped the center of the tiny flower with a pink dazzle sticker!
I used some pop dots to adhere the church sticker on the right and sentiment at the bottom of my tray. The ephermera heart I glued at the bottom of my heart tray. Then applied some clear glossy highlights to the top of the heart to add some dimension. Here's some closeups!
To finish my printer tray, I glued some eyelet lace trim along the edges of my heart. Then took some pink tulle and hot glued it to the back of my tray for hanging!
