My version of a printer's tray

This is my version of a printer's tray. I wanted one for a long time, and love the vintage inspired way they look. I came across this wall hanging at a garage sale and knew that I wanted to work with it. I bought it for $2.00. I repainted it, covered some damaged areas with black card stock and added some Vintage Poppy paper from Lily Bee.

Because it does not have any glass, I was fearful of the photos getting dusty, so after I added them, I precut some regular transparency to fit in the openings over the pictures. Then I added the goodies--emphemera, ribbon, chipboard, and journaling spots. I cannot wait to hang this up in our home. It makes me so happy.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill, DCWV; Patterned Paper: Lily Bee; Ribbon: Making Memories, Creative Cafe, Craft supply; Rubons: Lily Bee; Chipboard: K & Co, Chatterbox, Scenic Route; Diecuts: The Girl's Paperie, K & Co, Cosmo Cricket, Chatterbox, craft supply; Flowers: Prima; Gems: Prima; Sentiment sticker: Cloud 9 Design; Mini clipboard: unknown

So Happy August to you!!!! Love and Hugs, Lara

This is fantastic. I love that you found one to re-purpose rather than buy the new one that is so much more expensive. It really inspires me to look more at my surroundings and 2nd hand before just going out and buying something new.

I am sure that will be so enjoyed hanging in your home, it is beautiful.

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. Thought I'd pop over and say hi. Great minds think alike, we both used that K&Co. family on our printers tray! Looks great. Aren't they fun to make?? Love it!
