The Wee Wooden Tray

Hi everyone!

Something different from cards to share today… I altered a wee wooden tray for an upcoming workshop.. this is the before picture ๐Ÿ™‚


If you would like to decorate one with me I will be at Stampers Grove on Saturday 10th December from 11am till 1pm. ย  they are perfect for that last minute Christmas gift, you can paint/embelish , then fill them with a whole host of festive goodies, wrap up in cellophane and you have a perfect tailor made christmas gift!

Here is the one I made today, this would be perfect filled with fruit teabags, coffee, and homemade shortbread biscuits..


There are a lot of different things incorporated in this tray, I gilded the edges in gold leaf, Stamped and heat embossed the sides with embossing powder and lined the inside and sides with a gorgeous patterned paper.. the handles are bound in gorgeous twine


I also took a picture outside, it is amazing how lighter it looks in natural lighting ๐Ÿ™‚


To book a space on the workshop telephone 0131 221 9440 or email or pop into the shop at 92 Grove Street Edinburgh EH3 8AP .. Link to the workshop schedule here

Thanks so much for popping round.. I have another tray to prepare as a sample for the workshop, so be sure to check back next week
