Above is a picture of a tray I made my mom for Mother's Day. That furry thing at the top is my cat Lucy, smelling the thing I put on the floor.

Anyway, here's how to make it:
 Smiley A frame large yet small enough to be a tray
 Smiley 12x12 scrapbooking paper
 Smiley Pictures, printouts, newpaper clippings, etc
 Smiley Flat decorations that are mainly used for scrapbooking
 Smiley Glue
 Smiley Two drawer pulls
 Smiley Access to a power drill

Step by Step
1. Take the paper and cardboard out of the frame. Use the paper backing (that they use to list the frame details on) to glue the scrapbooking paper on. Cover it completely with the paper of your choice.
2. Arrange photos, stickers, flat decorations ( I like Jolee's Botique), and other clippings onto the paper.
3. When you've achieved the desired look, glue it all in place.
4. Take the glass out of the frame and leave it off to the side.
5. Using a power drill, drill holes in the sides that can be used as handles.
6. Put the glass and the designed paper back into the frame and close it all up.

Hints, Tips, and Suggestions
 Grin This makes a great gift. Present it to a parent by serveing them breakfast-in-bed with it.
 Grin If you wrap this up with snack foods, magazines, books, and other time-passers, someone who's in the hospital or who is bed-ridden will love the gesture.
 Grin You can make this with anything you have lying around... wrapping paper, fabric scraps, etc.

If anyone makes one, I'd love to see it!
