Time for another blog hop with the Designer Craft Connection - this one is sponsored by Deflecto, maker of acrylic organizing and display products. We were challenged to get creative with their 3-tier tray, which I thought would be a very useful and decorative way to keep the craft supplies you use the most close at hand. You can enter to win one of these trays for yourself - details at the bottom of this post!
After assembling the tray, I measured and cut rings from coordinating sheets of scrapbook paper and adhered them to each tier with a few large glue dots.
I thought the bottom tier would be perfect for holding and sifting through small loose flowers that I use in cardmaking, but it needed a taller lip around the edge. I wrapped strips of thick acetate sheets around the bottom, securing with foam adhesive squares every two inches. With paper-lined tape, I adhered narrow ribbon around the acetate.
I added some cute trim to finish it off. Deflecto also makes these handy clips for adding a little sign, card or photo to any kind of display fixture.
