DIY Paper Tray...

098 This is one of my favorite, easy, inexpensive DIY's that results in gorgeous trays to display just about anything. I have smaller ones for my perfumes, one to corral my jewelry, one to catch my keys after work, and NOW one to sit on my coffee table and store the clickers.  Styled four different ways below as well!107 Tools required and how-to after the jump...
111 Needed:
  1. Cut paper to size of tray.  Leave a little extra for corners and creases.
  2. Starting slowly from center, paint Modge-Podge on tray and smooth paper on top.  
  3. Work your way to the outer edges, smoothing the paper all the while. 
  4.  Trim any edges that go over the tray's edge.
  5. Paint a coat of Modge-Podge on top of paper to seal in.  
118 Another easy DIY coming soon.  See the last photo for a hint.  What DIY's have you done lately?  Which "styling" do you like the best?
