DIY Wine and Cheese Tray

It is so much fun to makeover a found tray or create a tray by adding handles to a found frame or other object and make it a tray.  Today on the blog Shelley Haganman shows us how to use the Canvas Corp Vino and Ale Paper Collection to create this wine and cheese themed tray.

This week, Canvas Corp is showcasing their new collection, Vino and Ale (read more about it here). It’s an incredibly fun line all about wines, cheeses, craft beers and ciders.

Today I am going to show you how you can make your very own wine and cheese tray using 7 Gypsies Photo Shadow Box! All you will need besides the shadowbox is some of the amazing Canvas Corp Papers. I used Vino and Cheese on Kraft, Uncorked Sayings on Kraft, and Black and Kraft Wine Glasses, a piece of glass cut to fit the top of the shadowbox and other items you want to include in your tray (see widget below for materials).tray 4 copy

First you will need to gather your supplies. I had some corks on hand so I cut those in half so they would fit under the piece of glass I would be adding later. Then I just started measuring and cutting my pieces of Canvas Corp Kraft papers to fit inside the cubbies.

Materials Needed:

Tools – paint brush, glue, scissors, paper cutter, screwdriver (pending on how you attach handle), glue gun, round paper punch if you have the right sizes is makes cutting the circles easy.

Layer papers and specialty papers to give your tray dimension.

Show off some of your favorite corks in your tray, cover a lot or a little of the tray in corks, you can also turn this into a cork board.   tray 3 copy

When I finally had my pieces in place and glued securely I added my piece of glass that I had cut to fit the dimensions of the shadowbox. For this project I used the adhesive shown in the photo since it was for bonding glass. Once I did that I turned the whole tray over and place some heavy items on top for 24 hours while the bond became permanent.

I had a couple of vintage handles on hand so I used the same adhesive to add those to the tray. Next I took some adhesive backed cord paper and trimmed the outer edges of my tray.  Now my tray is ready to serve some wine and cheese or to just look fabulous on it’s own! I hope I have inspired you to use Canvas Corp Brand products in new and fun ways. I am really pleased with how this turned out!
