little boys=a happy home {altered painter's tray project}

I've made a few altered painter's trays as gifts for family members and they've been pretty popular.
I had an extra one laying around and decided to make one for myself. I used papers and embellies from my Jillibean Warehouse box to keep it tied together.

I am so happy with how it turned out. I love all the little boxes -I might do one for each season and display it on our mantle!



Have you ever worked with painter's trays? Where did you display them?

  3. Love this Christina! Was it very hard to cut the papers and adhere them into those boxes?

  4. I love this! Where do you find the painter's trays and is it difficult to get the papers and photos sized correctly? Have a great weekend!

  5. I love this! I've never made a painter's tray display, but I always love them when I see them! Using the Jillibean Soup box to keep it all cohesive is a great idea!
