Altered Serving Tray

A lovely idea I picked up while playing with Paper at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique

Each of us who attended the National Scrapbook Day crop at PSB received a painted serving tray.

An idea PSB picked up from the lovely Altered Vintage Serving Tray created by Donna and posted on the Cosmo Cricket Blog.

There, at PSB, they had a beautiful sample for us to use to create our own version of the serving tray.

I ended up making a couple to give as mother’s day gifts.

On the first tray, I used the lovely Evangeline line from Cosmo Cricket.

They were surprisingly easy to make (considering that the lovely ladies at PSB had already painted the trays).

For the second tray, I used the new Nature Garden Collections from Prima, along with a little Pink Paislee.

I love, love, love the new ivory organza rose trim from Maya Roads.

And everything looks better with a few Prima flowers, don’t you think?

Now, I just need to find some more vintage serving trays, they make fabulous gifts, don’t you think?

Here’s a look at the original tray created by Donna:

Isn’t it lovely?

Check out Donna’s tray HERE on the Cosmo Cricket blog. And see PSB‘s version of Donna’s tray HERE.

Have a wonderful day!

xoxo, Christie
