Altered art / collage little silver tray

What to do with this cute little silver tray?

P1180027

I almost just slapped a price tag on it and sold it ‘as found’.  It’s the perfect size for a catch-all for keys, coins or jewelry.

P1180060But I was feeling crafty, so I gave it a little ‘oomph’!

P1180061The little crystals don’t show up very well in the photos, but I glued six of them onto the ‘small petal’ sections.  A big brass color skeleton key, a small skeleton key and a ‘love’ charm.

P1180064The ribbon for hanging it was the hardest part to figure out.  I glued it to the back, then glued some paper on top of the glued on ribbon for added strength.

P1180062The attached ribbon held just fine, and looked fine . . . from the front.  But it was UGLY on the back!

P1180069So I cut out a picture into an oval shape and glued it over the glued on ribbon.  Now it’s reversible!

P1180065Just a wee silver tray.

P1180067And a little love!

It is available for purchase  in my etsy shop
