The 7 Gypsies tray was bought from HK Memory Chest (they still have them in at the moment, in black or white, so get one quickly). They are only 6.5" x 6.5", so make a quick and easy project. I used Teresa Collins papers from her new Every Day Moments collection. I actually got her papers from the CHA where she was doing mini album "make and takes". Instead of completing the album, I took it apart and used the papers in this project.
|Patterned paper was cut to size to fit the inserts. I then used mod-podge to seal the edges and to give it a nice waterproof coating. I used Excel to create the calendar and stuck one month on each side of six pieces of patterned paper.|
|I printed and cut out a tiny picture of Miss C to place under the glass pendant. I used Glossy Accents to seal the pendant but in future, I may try something else as it seems to leave tiny air bubbles in between which I couldn't get out.|
|I punched out a strip of black cardstock and stuck it to the edge of the tray, sanded it and added a little gold acrylic paint to make it blend in and look seamless. A row of black bling completes the tray.|
