Gloria's Altered Printer's Tray

Hello, Gloria from Scraps of LIfe with you today. I am the CropStop Guest Designer for October. 

Here is what I created for altered printer's tray.

I received the 7 Gypsies Santa's Journey 8x8 paper pad from CropStop, and I loved how vintage it is! I decided to use it to decorate a small tray (6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches). I placed some of the Santa's Journey paper into the largest opening, and then matted the Santa image (cut from another piece of the paper) onto red cardstock. Santa is attached with foam tape to the center of the opening. I created a Christmas "spray" around the edge of the tray with die cut shapes and a few other odds and ends.

I die cut a paper rosette (Tim Holtz Rosette die) and an ornament (Spellbinders Mix and Match Ornaments) for the corner of the tray. 

I cut the leafy flourish (Couture Creations Missoni) from silver foil cardstock. I sanded the foil a bit to "shabby" it up. I fussy cut the Nice list from the Santa's Journey paper.

I die cut a reindeer (Tim Holtz Mini Reindeer die) and a little tag for this corner of the tray. I stamped a sentiment on the tiny tag. I added some Glossy Accents to the "25" to make it shiny. (I also used Glossy Accents to attach all the items to the outside of the tray.)

For the middle opening, I embossed some metallic cardstock with the Couture Creations Jolly Christmas folder, then I added a postage image cut from the designer paper, and a bit of bling I found in my stash.   For the last opening, I filled a bottle cap with Glossy Accents, and placed silver bells and some white and red microbeads inside. Once the glue dries, the items will stay in place. I fussy cut another postage image for this area.

I hope you enjoyed my project for today.
