Step by Step Instructions

1 Paint the tray
2 Measure inside
3 Transfer measurements
4 Cut out pattern
5 Stick pattern on
6 Add decorations
  • Step 1. Paint the tray

    Paint the tray your Mum’s favourite colour but leave the inside base unpainted for the self-adhesive film. Let it dry and apply a second coat.
  • Step 2. Measure inside

    Once the tray is dry, measure the inside to work out how much self-adhesive film you’ll need.
  • Step 3. Transfer measurements

    Use a ruler and pencil to mark out the measurements on the back of the self-adhesive film.
  • Step 4. Cut out pattern

    Use your scissors to cut out the self-adhesive film pattern. We’ve chosen a flower pattern but there are plenty of other designs available.
  • Step 5. Stick pattern on

    Peel back the top of your self-adhesive film and line it up on the inside of your tray. Slowly peel back the rest, pressing the film down on the tray, smoothing as you go. Once you’re done, smooth out any air bubbles with a credit card.
  • Step 6. Add decorations

    Draw up some decorations on your foam card. Cut them out and stick on the tray using glue. We’ve chosen leaves to match our floral pattern but you can make whatever you like. Get creative.
