Sunflower Serving Tray & Coaster Set

Well, I am pulling this project out of my craft archives to share with you. I figured that just because I designed this many years ago for a magazine that is long out of print, it is still a very cool project that you can recreate with new stamps and papers. Why don’t you give it a try yourself and then leave me a comment on how you recreated it. I’m sure you can come up with some beautiful projects! This project set makes a wonderful gift for your family and friends, and if you hurry you can get it finished in time to enjoy some iced tea or lemonade on your back porch before the summer leaves us for the fall. Have fun!

Until next time…

Color sunflowers with watercolor crayons and a paintbrush. Dab a cotton ball on oak brown inkpad and spread ink on tray lightly. Spray tray with sealer.

Cut sunflower pattern paper into four squares 3 1/2” x 3 1/2”. Using Aleene’s decoupage, cover the paper and entire bottom of the tray. Next, with decorative scissors cut corrugated paper into two strips 1” x 26”. With glue gun, glue corrugated paper around the outside of the tray and add raffia.

 Instructions for Coaster Set

Paint paper mache box and four paper mache ornaments with acrylic paint, set aside to   dry. Next, cut all your papers and cork as follows: White card stock 4 - 3” circles, Bee & Beehive paper 4-  3 1/2” circles, Sunflower paper 1-  4” circle, Cork 4- 3 1/2” circles, Corrugated paper one strip 1” x 14”.

Stamp sunflower (with words) on all four white circles with black pigment inkpad and emboss with clear embossing powder. Color with Tombow markers. Glue stamped circles to Bee & Beehive paper circles with Xyron or a glue stick, and then glue completed circles to all four paper mache ornaments. Next, cut 4 - 4” circles from a sheet of self-adhesive laminate paper or clear contact paper. Lay laminate circles on top of the ornaments and smooth over the edges. Glue trim around the ornaments to cover the laminate edges. Turn ornaments over and adhere cork circles with Xyron or white glue.

Glue 4” Sunflower pattern paper circle to the lid of the paper mache box. Glue trim around the outside of the lid. Next, cut corrugated paper in a strip measuring 1” x 14” and glue around the outside of the box. Tie raffia around the box and make a bow.
