Clear Scraps Printer Tray--Patriotic

Hello everyone!  Laura here with you today to

share a great home decor project to show your

patriotic spirit!!  It's great for 4th of July but

it could be displayed for Memorial Day too!

Clear Scraps Printer Tray--Celebrate America Home Decor(1)

This project was created using the Clear Scraps

Square Printers Tray Frame.

I took the top frame first and painted using white

and gray acrylic paint brushed on top to create a

weathered wood/window frame look.  On the back

piece of the tray, I glued down a piece of patterned

paper that looked like an American flag with the

stars and stripes.  Then it's just creating a little

individual "scene" in each of the squares.

One of the fun tricks with these trays is to

layer the pieces you use to give it depth.

This shows the separate squares that are decorated UNDER

the acrylic layer.  Before the acrylic layer is added and the

top frame and decor on the outside goes on.

Same here as well.  It looks a bit plain before the pieces that

are glued onto the top of the acrylic, once the top frame

piece goes onto the tray.  In this next picture, you can see

it really makes such a difference!

Don't be afraid to play with different ideas with

these trays!  They really are a lot of fun, and they

make great home decor pieces as well as great gifts!


And just a reminder:  Make sure to take the protective

film off of both sides of the acrylic.  And if you plan on

sequins--make sure you add them before you glue down

that acrylic layer!  I may speak from experience....haha!

For this project, I used the Clear Scraps Winter Sequin Mix

Strange to think Winter Mix, but they have the perfect red,

white and blue for this project!


Thanks so much for stopping by today!


Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps:  Square Printers Tray Frame, Winter Sequin Mix.

Other:  Acrylic paint--gray, white, twine, foam tape,

Photoplay Paper-America the Beautiful paper and stickers.
