I recently hit the local Goodwill again, and found another item begging to be altered. I found this cute (but boring) little silver-toned tray for a whopping $1.99, so I threw it on the ever-growing pile in my cart. Once I got it home, I pulled out some supplies from Graphic45 and turned it into a fun piece of art.
I decorate the top of the tray using 2 sizes of metal butterflies from Graphic45 Staples and a butterfly image cut from one of the papers. Once I had my image cut, I used some Ranger Inkssentials Crackle Accents over the entire image. When dry, I pierced the center and stacked it with the metal butterflies on a G45 Staples metal brad. It is adhered to the tray using adhesive foam and Scor Tape.
Finally, I added some additional embellishments from my stash, and it is ready to display.
I hope you enjoyed my little piece of art decor! If you'd like to make something similar, you can use as few or many of the following supplies as you'd like.
