Mother's Day Printer's Tray - SVG Cuts DT Project.

Hello everyone!

I'm SO excited to share my next SVG Cuts project with you all!

I made this project a while back, way before there was the Curio box file (Attic Treasures SVG Kit).  Printer Tray/Shadowbox is totally popular right now, and I thought that it would be so cool to make one out from SVG Cuts files... I thought about what files would work, and of course, it's that good old Classic Christmas Advent Calendar SVG kit! I took a portion of the calendar, altered the box sizes a bit, and changed the depth... and voila! I had a printer's tray - in paper! Yay!

I decided to make the theme of the tray into something that you can give as a Mother's Day gift, but really, you can use this for anything! It's probably cutting it too close for Mother's Day, but wouldn't it be perfect project to work on for Father's Day? It's the perfect tray to add some little keepsakes in and to display some photos that you love. The good thing about doing it this way, rather than simply using the Curio Box above, is that you can customize where you would like the boxes to go, the size of it and the depth of it. It's all up to you!

Anyway, here's my project!


I fell in love with this project while I was making it, and rather than waiting to give to mom this weekend, I couldn't wait - I just had to give it to her as soon as it was done! Of course, she loved it, and is now proudly hanging in her craft room.


I just love this silhouette of the mother and a child. So perfectly beautiful!


In each of the compartments, I tried to summarize all the lovely things that moms like to do and do for us...


This compartment describes my mom the best - she loves sewing!


I love this one... a woman becomes a mother with the arrival of a baby... :) Awww....

So, in order to create this tray, I had to create a 'face' for the tray.


However, I didn't want to put you through all the work to make this, so I have this file available for you to download through here.
