Supplies for Autumn Black DIY Photo Tray:

  • Black Matted Photo Tray (BCI-101)
  • 4 – sheets of the same scrapbook paper to cover the white matt board. We used Photoplay paper collection called “Falling Leaves”
  • Photos or Journal cards to fill the openings on the matt board.
  • Masking Tape or any other tape you have handy.
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

 

Directions:

Here are the 6 papers I used from our new Photo Play “Falling Leaves” Collection.

Take the 4 matching papers and tape them together as one big 24×24 square.

Then place the matting that comes with your tray on the backside of the paper and trace all around the matt board.

Then cut out your paper so it fits on top of the white matting.

Use a tape runner to secure the mat, or leave it unglued if you want to change out the images for each holiday. Just placing the mat on top will be secure enough.
