Tuesday Daily Project at Exploring Cricut

Welcome! I have the daily project at Exploring Cricut. I love going to thrift stores and finding things I can redo. I found this unfinished tray for 1.50 and snatched it up! I started by base painting with black. I then had a paper package of brown patterns from Recollections that I got at Michaels and I used two different patterns and some tan cardstock for the inside of the tray. I cut my title Grandchildren from the Cricut American Alphabet, matted my pictures of my little angels, cut 3 flowers from Art Philosophy, the butterfly from Indie Art and keeping with our challenge used a cartridge that has been neglected Pictureque for the leaves. Below the pictures are the measurements. I inked the leaves and flowers with Colorbox chalks and the pearls are from Recollections too! Be sure to join our challenge at Exploring Cricut and be sure to leave a comment all week on our Facebook page for a chance to win a prize.


  1. Oh, wow! What a fabulous project! The photos are wonderful and the embellishment is beautiful! Great work!
    If this is the tray that I am thinking about, it fits nicely into the some of the JetMax slots. I use trays as 'drawers' in my JM slots!

  2. This is awesome!!!! I so love it! I'm gonna have to start looking for some wood trays to remake. :)

  3. Wow, wow! The possibilities are endless with this idea! TFS:)


  4. You did an amazing job redoing this tray. I bet it looks great in your carft room. Enjoy your time with your granddaughter! Glad to be on the Exploring Cricut team.
