Embellishment Tray

Happy Friday everyone! How's the holiday shopping going? Mine? Still going LOL. Here is my I Am Roses project for you today. I turned this plain peat compartment tray, found at my .99 Store, into an embellishment holder. This is a gift that I filled up and created for my sister.

I used some bamboo skewers to hold up the banner with her name spelled out. I flanked both sides of the banner with a 1" White Rose and some S10 Flowers.
Each tray slot was filled with some of my favorite embellishments for her to use. It's a beautiful way to display any goodies and makes for easy access.

I layered some lace trims and wrapped it around the tray. The center flower is a 2" White Rose backed with some Skeleton Leaves, Rose Leaves and some more S10 Flowers. I tied a bow with some white seam binding as well.

On one of the skewers I wrapped a Short White Flower Spray with some lace and seam binding. This is not permanently adhered to the stick so that it too can be used as an embellishment. I love how this turned out and with such little cost. You can view a closer look of my project on my video here. Thanks for stopping by.

One last thing, don't forget to head on over to the I Am Roses Challenge Blog, we are having a Color Challenge going on for the month of December. Have a beautiful weekend!
