What You Need:
- An Unfinished Wooden Tray
- Pattern Paper
- Modge Podge
You can paint your tray if you'd like (chalkboard paint may be fun), I chose not to. I laid out my pattern of paper, pictures and a quote first (I printed this from my computer at home). . .then did the hand prints with the kids. I just used regular acrylic craft paint.
After the hand prints dried, I layered on a thin coat of Modge Podge and laid out my papers and my quote. One more thin coat of Modge Podge and I placed my pictures. I covered the top with a final thin coat of Mod Podge to protect it.
For fun, I tied some coordinating ribbons to the handles.
And that's it - a quick and easy keepsake for a grandmother, godmother, aunt or anyone.
