Treasure box – a different kind of a printers' tray

Printers’ trays are in fashion today, everyone has one, made one or got one as a present. I wanted one too, an open treasure box with the photos of thoe I love. But instead of buying a printer’s tray from 7 Gypsies or Tim Holtz I decided to use an old wooden tea bag box I had. I painted it with acrylic paint and after it was dry I could add my photos and embellishments.

I wanted to make it as low cost as possible so I added handmade embellishments like the flowers, punched border and flags I created from paper and wire. I also added a few embellishments I found at the Dollar store.

After it was finished I decided that it turned out so nice I should make a few more and give them as Passover presents to my family. A beautiful personal treasure box.

Try to use items you have in your house to create beautiful projects or presents that don’t cost much!
