Easy DIY Lucite Tray

My favorite DIYs are the incredibly simple ones, especially on a Friday when my brain is fried!

I love the look of trays, they somehow make my clutter look clean and organized.  I saw this project for a DIY lucite tray out of a clear plastic picture frame, and thought duh!  Of course it can be a tray.

I went out to Michael's and bought a clear box frame and a piece of scrapbooking paper.

I took out the cardboard insert and turned the frame upside down, and voila!  A tray!

Then I cut the paper to size and put it in the tray.  I think someday I might take the paper out and glue on some gold studs like this diy instead.  

And done!  Easiest DIY ever, am I right?!

I hope you have a great weekend.  Tonight I'm going to a going away party for my new sister-in-law (now it's her turn to move to Korea!), then tomorrow the boyfriend and I are having some people over for brunch and then hitting a Cubs game.  And hopefully also lots of sleeping! 

P.S. I'm being featured on Simple Easy Style today.
