A Halloween/Thanksgiving Tray

Good Morning,

I want to show you a Halloween/Thanksgiving Tray that I made using  KaiserCraft Beyond the Page Carry Tray.  It is much easier to put the paper on while the tray is still in pieces and then put the whole thing together after it is papered.

This is what the tray looks like in it's packaging, it can be decorated with any color paper:

Here is the tray:

I used paper from Pebbles "Spooky Boo".

Here is the inside of the tray.  I filled it with shredded scrap paper.

The idea that I had was that this could be used for Halloween and Thanksgiving.  I could just replace the shredded paper with a more fall look.  I love that plaid inside don't you?

I made a tag to go on the outside but instead of sticking it down, I attached a magnet to the outside of the tray and a magnet to the back of the tag.  I can then change it over to Thanksgiving images:

I know I went a little crazy with the tag, it was so much fun to make.  I made the little rosette, the doily behind the witch and the clothespin clips.  The little cat flair is from my friend Diana's shop. https://www.dianamlarson.com/

I bought the lights (that are on timers) from Amazon.com

Here is a look at the try from the side:

I think that I am probably going to raise the candles a little higher in the tray.

I am entering this project into the following challenges:
