A colorful bird tray to liven up your desk.
I love birds and I love trays - hence, the bird tray!
You Will Need
Grab your punch and start punching out scalloped circles to go onto the bottom of the tray. I was doing another project at the same time, so I punched over the frame. I always punch on the BOTTOM side of the paper - I can’t tell you why, just a funny habit! I used paper from the same collection as I did my pencil holder, so they were coordinating but not exactly the same. I think it gives my desk set a special touch.
Place your scalloped circles into the Mod Podge randomly. Continue spreading Mod Podge and laying down circles until you’ve covered the bottom of the tray. Use your brush to spread Mod Podge over the top of the circles and remove excess Mod Podge from the edges. Allow to dry for 15 - 20 minutes.
After drying, coat the entire tray with at least two coats of Mod Podge. Allow to dry and then add embellishments (I added paper flowers) to the ends with Pop Dots. I layered some of the flowers using craft glue. Now that you are done, put together with the pencil holder you also created for a very special gift desk set.
