Twiddleybitz Printer Tray ... thinking outside the "square"

In your pack of Twiddleybitz Printer Trays, you get 3 trays and a base board.  The 3 trays are designed to allow for dimension when creating your OTP - BUT - thinking outside the square, I have managed to use my single pack to create 1 OTP and 1 layout, with one left over for another day. How's that for making the most of your supplies?

Here is the first of my projects, a layout using the Kaisercraft Miss Empire Die Cut Brass.

I left 1 layer of the printer tray bare (leave all the rest of the kit for later), just stamping it lightly and randomly using Pinecone Ink and a Kaisercraft Script stamp

Next I cut out the inner section of the die cut.  I then attached the centre piece of the die cut to some scrap cardboard for a sturdy backing, as I need the base that comes with the Printers Tray for my OTP.  Using my hot glue gun I attached the tray to the outer die cut.

Into the middle of the flower I sprinkled Turquoise Microbeads, adhering them with Dimensional Magic.  I then created an embellishment cluster using an  Antique Bronze Leaf Charm, Brown Magnolia and Brown gardenia and to finish up - a Brown Together Charming Word (minus the bead and flower, I just had it lying around on my table unfinished!).

Up in the top corner I used a Precious Banner from the Rustic Brown Banner Charming Buttons collection, a brown gardenia, and a bit I cut from the Twiddleybitz Flowers in Flourish, an Antique Bronze Leaf Charm and a resin flower.

I popped a piece of muslin with Turquoise Microbeads, a brown rose and an antique bronze heart locket charm into a small square section of the Printer Tray to complete my page.

I'll be back on the weekend with my OTP using the printer tray as a decorative memo board (the sun went down too quickly for me to get decent photos).
