D.I.Y. Photo Collage Tray

What could you do with an item like this?

You can use it as a frame to create a photo collage!

Crafted by Joy.


  • Black Tray (as shown here)
  • 1 Sheet of Bo Bunny "Timepiece" Paper
  • 1 Sheet of 7 Gypsies Tissue Paper
  • Sizzix 3D Flower Die
  • Tim Holtz Idea-ology Embellishments
  • Photos
  • Scor-Pal Scor-Tape
  • Scissors
  • Brads

All supplies used for this project can be found at our Bonney Lake store.  

  1. Use the scissors to cut your photos and the Bo Bunny Timepiece paper to fit the spaces in the tray. 
  2. Adhere the paper and photos in the spaces of the tray using Scor-Tape or an adhesive of your choice.
  3. Use Sizzix 3D Flower Die (or another flower die) to cut 8 flower dies from the 7 Gypsies tissue paper to create the flower. Remember, if you do not have a die cut system, you could use our Die Cut Center free of charge when you purchase paper from our store.
  4. Layer the flower cut outs by stacking them all together, and use a brad to secure it. Scrunch or bend the petals upward to give it a 3D effect.
  5. Apply the flower and the Idea-ology embellishments, using the Scor-Tape, on the desired areas of the tray.
  6. Proudly display your photo collage in an area of your home.
