Hello everyone. Hope everyone is enjoying Megs "Water Colour in Blue" collection.
My mum enjoys having me and my kids to tea parties. She cooks up a storm and we use tea cups and saucers. When the weather is warmer we go outside to enjoy her garden. The new paper collection gave me a great idea to make a tea tray for her to carry the cakes and cups.
First I found a photo frame which had a nice big border and was about 500mmx400mm.
I then bought two decorative handles. So there was no chance of me breaking the glass while drilling and screwing the handles in I took the frame apart and put the glass aside.
I decorated the black cardboard which came with the frame and then put the glass back in. Using liquid nails I glued the back together and taped over this with a heavy duty material tape to give it strength.
To finish the tray of I decorated one corner with flowers and ivy leaves. I added glitter to the flowers to give them depth of colour.
I was very happy how this tray turned out. The glass makes it easy to wipe any spills.
Have a go at making your own tray. There are many colour papers at Megs Garden to choose from.
