Harvest Display Tray

This week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart is to make a home decor item.  I love the display trays that Close To My Heart debuted in the Autumn/Winter 2012 catalog, that I had to try one out.

My kids love riding on the combine with my dad during harvest, so I thought I would make a tray for him.  What do you think?

It was very fun to put together.  There is burlap ribbon attached to the hangers at the top, but it didn't show up in the picture.  I didn't make the tray as elaborate as some I've seen - I'll have to try another one sometime!

Materials used are Close To My Heart unless otherwise indicated:

Papers:  You and Me (retired); John Deere paper from Creative Imaginations
Chocolate cardstock
Whisper cardstock
Slate, Chocolate and Goldrush inks
Stamp sets:  Cherish the Day (retired); My Farm (retired)
Embellishments:  burlap ribbon, Durables Round Studs, John Deere stickers and brad from Creative Imaginations, wheat from the field


  1. Oh my gosh! Totally love this! I love the You and Me paper...always wished it had been a regular line. The John Deere paper is too cool, but I think the thing that puts it over the edge is the wheat! I absolutely love this! Thanks for playing along with us at Heart 2 Heart! :)

  2. Totally awesome! Love it! Thanks for playing along with H2H on this challenge!
