Girl Power Heart Printer Tray
February 20, 2023
They say February is the month to share love with others, but how easy is it to show some love to yourself? Hi everyone, it's Maureen with you today. I wanted to share a project that I've recently hung in my office. It is meant to be a source of encouragement during those days when it feels kinda blah, you know?
This project is done with the Heart Printer Tray Frame. What a great item to do a lot of the layout work for you!
I found a set of "girl boss" cards that I've had for awhile, and my original intent was to get some of them framed. Since THAT hasn't happened (Ha!), it was time to get this great paper out of the box! I've chosen a few sayings and paper patterns that worked well together and set them aside.
These cards were laid behind the frame at first to see what fit where, then I cut them apart and once again laid them out. Each separate piece is glued to the base of the printer tray frame.
Next, I painted the top of the frame in peach paint and set aside. Once it was dry I added a coat of glitter glue to the top.
It's time to layer in the 2 bottom layers of the frame, and I'm using a tacky glue for this. Glue each piece on and let dry, then choose which windows you'll add some bling in.
For this theme, I'm once again turning to the Lovely Sequin Mix - it's so versatile, and I use it for a lot of my Spring projects!
Some of the paper was set aside to cover the heart from the set of Word n Shape Family Heart collection. I've glued the paper on and dusted the edges in ink.
I'm adding a couple felt roses to the frame. These are such a fun embellishment to make! Simply cut a felt circle in a spiral, then start twisting it from the outside all the way in.
Use some hot glue to glue the center in place, then add a green felt leaf shape (I hand cut mine.).
This will look good in an easel, but you can also hang your frame. You can adhere ribbon in between the layers with hot glue or staple the ribbon to the back.
And I am done with my project! I think I'm going to hang this next to my desk as an inspiration piece! Where would you put a girl power sign in your creative or work space?
Thanks for joining me today - happy crafting!
Additional supplies: Recollections "Boss Babe" papers (these are retired, but many others will work), glue, peach paint, Stickles rainbow glitter glue, scissors, ribbon and a glue gun
