SPD [Easy Acrylic Tray Tutorial]

A while back, Katie did a tutorial for a $5 acrylic tray. I've pinned a TON of them on Pinterest & I've been wanting to make one FOREVER so I finally did!
My inspiration came from here, here & here!

I present to you, the easiest DIY ever!


You'll need...


+an 8x10 Acrylic shadow box
+your choice of cardstock [I chose sparkly, gold]
+scissors

**NOT PICTURED**
+double sided tape
I ended up using this to secure the cardstock to the tray because it was curling up at the edges a bit!


What you do...






one- cut your cardstock to fit your frame
two- place double sided tape on the back of your cardstock
three- secure to tray
four- decorate! 
[I used my new B&BW candle, Lakeside, The Happiness Project Journal 
& some sunnies!]

VOILA!!




Linking up with my two favorites, Katie & Steph... duh!
