Vintage Crafts- DIY Souvenir Tray

 

vintage souvenir trayHi everyone! Today I am back with another vintage craft to share with you guys! Today I am going to share how to make a souvenir tray from a Summer 1953 issue of McCalls Needlework and Craft Magazine. This craft idea was in the “Just for Fun” article and suggested glueing letters and postcards or mementos to trays for a great way to display your treasured papers.

Here is the Original:

I used vintage post cards from my stash of vintage paper ephemera, and the red tray I picked up at Walmart this summer. I wrapped the wooden handles with some aqua and white bakers twine.

I used vintage post cards for my tray, but I think it would be a great way to save your summer paper mementos to remember summer vacations or maybe even family letters and photos. You can really get creative with it and make it your own. I’ll be back soon with more vintage fun. Until then…

Happy Crafting!
