Get the Look: Acrylic Trays Three Ways

main_Image

Today we are featuring an extremely versatile product… Acrylic Trays! Acrylic trays are great for entertaining purposes, using them to serve food or drinks whether you are hosting a large event or a party for two. They also act as a functional element for your home décor. What makes these trays even better is that they have a removable back that allows you to easily change up the look of your tray. Here’s three ways to use these around the house after the celebrations are over.

You are bound to have décor elements from your bridal shower that you can re-purpose for your living room. Ground your decor by organizing items in your tray on your coffee table. Customize by using wrapping paper or patterned paper in the tray bottom to match your home decor.

After the wedding, take a memorable photo from your honeymoon and insert it into the bottom of the tray to create a lasting keepsake to remind you of that special moment. Corral and organize everyday jewelry or makeup on your dresser or in the bathroom.

How-To: Remove the Back Panel On the Acrylic Trays

diy_acrylictray_beauty6how

These trays are shipped with a tissue insert so you can remove the back panel from the tray. If you want to be able to change the paper insert from time to time, we recommend that you add a piece of ribbon to the back panel as shown below.

The magnets are very strong and the ribbon will allow you to easily separate the back panel. Use the back panel as a template to cut your paper inserts. You can find additional instructions for removing the tray back in this acrylic tray product info sheet.

Do-It-Yourself Packaging:

Use gift boxes that are large enough to easily fit your biggest gift item. Add sizzle to the bottom of the box and place all of the items on top of the sizzle. Add extra sizzle wherever it is necessary to make sure that everything sits properly and stays in place. Add a few decorative items like gold foil confetti and some real or silk flowers.

Use a craft hole punch to add a hole to a small decorative chalkboard. Create a gift tag by adding baker’s twine to the chalkboard!
