Artist Printers Tray- DT reveal for Cutting Edge Designs

I've been dying to share this Artist Printers Tray I created as my first design project for CUTTING EDGE DESIGNS blog and I actually created the entire thing out of card stock..  How amazing is that?.. When I first got my Silhouette Cameo, I was so excited when I found some amazing 3D cutting files in the SIL store and this Printers Tray is definitely one of my favorites..
I decided to share with you on how to put one together once you have all of the pieces cut and ready for assembly.. and remember, since you are creating this out of card stock, you can make it any color you want.. I decided to stick with white and use color to embellish it.. so, here we go:
It really is nice and sturdy, plus I was able to attach it to my wall using double sided tape because it is light weight..

In this side view, you can see how nice and deep the boxes are.. great for 3D embellishments that you want sitting on the edge for example.
I went with an extra large branch that I put in the middle of the tray and then adding the title FAMILY to the middle of that..

lots of pretty flowers and butterflies that I also cut with the cameo, this way I was able to match the colors perfectly..

This is definitely a favorite quote of mine.. My family is definitely the greatest blessing in my life..

my little cloud scene with the fence.. 

and finally my cluster of flowers..and my son Aaron peeking through..LOL

and now, if you'd like to follow my instructions on how to create you own Printers tray, please stop by CUTTING EDGE DESIGNS.
