The other day I found 2 items - a wooden tray (pretty beaten up) and a 5 by 7 white photo frame in fairly good condition. You can guess what I did with them. Yup - upcycled them and made them into a matching tray and framed picture.
My intent was to display it on my craft table tomorrow, but a friend of my son's saw it and immediately bought it for his mother.
I took the frame apart, cleaned it up, and then moved the mat over the paper to find the part of the paper looked best framed. Then it was cut to size and the frame was put the frame back together.
To fancy it up a bit, I hand made 3 roses using SU punches. The larger one was made using the Fun Flower punch; the 2 smaller ones with the Pansy punch. The branches were die cut using a retired sizzlet "Little Leaves". I hot glued them to the right lower corner.
I think I'll take the tray with me tomorrow with a sold sign on it. Maybe I can find another tray, who knows!
