Hello friends! Today, I wanted to share a little printer's tray I altered for my daughter to hang in her room. I think the vibrant and fun "Sweet Life" collection is perfect for a pre-adolescent girl, and she just loves this collection too.
Butterfly Altered Printer's Tray by Ilene Tell
I purchased the printer's tray at a dollar store, and it was plain wood. I then sprayed it with Tutu Glimmer Spray to give it a nice pink base, and then covered the whole thing with Blush Glitter Paste so the whole thing now looks like it's made of glitter.
I used various butterflies from the collection and cut some out of the paper, and then covered them with different colors of Glitter Paste to go along with the sparkly theme. There are so many colors to choose from, so all the pinks, blues, and the gold were perfect for this project.
I added a little laser-cut wood gear to the bottom middle spot and covered it with Pearlescents to give it the golden color and the thicker dimension. The smallest size of the Pocket Squares from the collection fit perfectly into the square sections of the tray.
