Graphic 45 Portrait of a Lady

Mini Printers Trays that I created with the stunning 
collection from Graphic 45 Portrait of a Lady.

I will gift these to my mother & mother-in-law for Mother's Day!

Herewith a Tutorial on how I made these cute little trays...

I used the Prima Embellishment boxes and removed the 
inner wooden piece to give some extra space. 
I can never seem to find such small printers 
trays and this came in quite handy...What a lovely way to up cycle! 
(Pardon the photo being a bit blurry)

I then painted the trays with chalk paint each with a 
different colour (Andrew and Cornelias Green) and
 then dry brushed both with Albert Umber. Don't worry about painting 
(except cover a little on the sides) 
the inside as that will be covered with the pattern paper.

Each tray measures 7cm by 30cm and so 
I proceeded to cut the sheets the same size.

The 2 side frames inside measure 7cm each and the middle frame
measures 15cm. I trimmed each piece to 6.5cm (side frames) 
and the middle frame to 14.5cm to fit leaving a small border.

After adhering the sheets into the frames
I added the metal handles to each.

I then fussy cut some elements from the 
sheets in the Collection.

I then inked the edges with distress ink and matted the 
picture frames onto pink and brown cardstock.

I embossed the wooden words (With Love) and the 
heart shapes with Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing 
Powders and removed the heart shapes from their frames.

I then cut some leaves using one of the 
sheets from the collection and 
the Creative Expression Olive Branch Die.

I added adhesive foam to the fussy 
cut elements to give it some 
dimension when adhered to the frames of the tray.

I arranged all the flowers, metal embellishments, string and pearls as to 
my liking and adhered using my glue gun.
