Today is our final day to explore of Vintage Varsity Collection and the projects have been so fun. We hope that we have inspired you to take another look at the hundreds of sports photos of your children we know you have and are inspired to create something special with them. Monica rounds out the week with this great printers tray. A perfect DIY craft to hang up for all to see.
Hi everyone! Monica here sharing an altered printers tray using the masculine patterned papers from Vintage Varsity collection. I have had my sons varsity football pictures packed away in a box for the longest time. I just didn’t have the biggest desire to do anything with them but, when I saw the Vintage Varsity papers I finally had the desire. I started with the 7gypsies Artist Printers Tray: Black which has 12 ATC size spots that are ready to be filled with photos, ephemera, papers and embellishments. Beacon’s Zip Dry was the perfect glue to choose for this project and adhering paper to wood perfectly.
So I took one of the sheets and used it as the backdrop for the printers tray and then fussy cut several of the images from the other papers and place them in different places. The basketball themed Net Paper has the look and feel of a vintage basketball or football and is a great background. Distress edges with Tattered Angels Paints.
The layers of vintage sports art, memorabilia and modern sports photos just work together so well with this collection. We hope you have enjoyed the week of sports memories and if this tray does not get the photos out of the drawers we are not sure what will!!!
