Serving Tea? or Coffee?

My other little project that I have been working on
was this one...

Here is how I made them...
I have cut out round and rectangle pieces of cardboard
and some small strips of cardboard (from an empty
cookie package that I gobbled up first lol!)
with a (scrapbook) scissor, you know
the ones that have a shaped blade,
Then glued the strip around the bottom of the tray.

After that I painted them with white acrylic paint a few times.
Then I glued some nice pictures on it
and made them look a bit shabby with some 'yellow ochre' paint
on a almost dry brush...

I still have to finish the étagère...
I have something special for it in my mind :)

  2. Lovely work - at first sight I thought that one with the spring bouquet was made in 3D... ;O)

    Have a great weekend

  3. Thank you Birgit :)
    If it was in 3-D the cups would fall over ;)
