Heidi Swapp - Too Cute to Spook Printers TrayThursday, September 17, 2015
Boo! I had a blast with this Halloween printer's tray! A printer's tray doesn't take a lot of time to make but makes such a statement in your home for a holiday! Let me show you how easy it was to create this in an hour.
This is a personal blog. All editorial content and projects are intellectual property of Create Often with Jennifer Evans. I am an employee and do receive financial compensation and material product from American Crafts to develop my craft posts, but all ideas and opinions are my own.
It was a lot of fun deciding what foil I was going to decorate each ephemera with! What is so special about these little pieces by Crate Paper, is that they are printed with a toner ink. When you run them through Heidi Swapp's 6" Mini Minc with your choice of Minc foil, the ink reacts to the foil and boom, custom embellishments!
I chose the new purple and orange Minc foils and as I got started, I had to throw in gold too. Ha!
Seriously, once I started foiling I just didn't want to stop. They were so cute! To create the background I used Pebble's Inc new "Boo!" collection and cut it to fit each rectangle. Only 1 12x12 piece of paper was needed.
Then, using American Crafts Sticky Thumb Adhesive Dots and Dimensional Adhesive I added the embellishments. Easy peasy.
When I saw the spider brads by Doodlebug at my local craft store, I had to pick them up for this web! I foiled the web in gold and the spider looks so cute sitting there!
I loved adding the American Crafts Crate Paper After Dark Spooky Thicker stickers! They come in gold and black glitter in the same package which made it easy to stick some stars and bats on the tray.
Lastly, I added Heidi Swapp's Halloween Marquee Love Washi Tape to the sides. This one is black with a web pattern. How easy was that?!
Overall, I am looking forward to giving this cute little Fall display as a gift to a friend. I think it will make their day!
Create Well: Embellishing has never been so fun as it is when using the Minc Mini and foiling for a holiday!
