Mother’s Day Gift – Picture Perfect Photo Tray

Hi there! I’m Kimberly, the owner and content creator at Stuffed Suitcase. On my blog I share tips and ideas about family travel and life between trips. Building family memories, especially while traveling, is one of my favorite hobbies. I’m happy to be sharing this Mother’s Day Photo Breakfast Tray here with Maggie and The Love Nerds readers!

If you’re a mom reading this, perhaps you can print the post for your husband or partner as a hint for a mother’s day gift idea. Or you could make this for your own mother with some photos from your childhood. The great thing about this tray is it’s versatility. It could be used as a photo display on the wall or bookshelf, for remotes or magazines on a coffee table, or even a jewelry tray for a dresser.

The first step for this project is getting the frame. I chose an 11′”x 17″ frame so the dishes would fit on the tray. Next I bought some cabinet door pulls from Home Depot that I felt matched the feel of the frame. Think about the feel you want for the piece.

Drill into the frame to attach the cabinet door pulls. I decided to have the handles as far to the edge as possible for the easiest carrying position. I also liked how these door pulls had a slight curve, which looked great as tray handles.

I then removed the hanging hardware that was attached to the back of the frame. One note, you might want to add some felt to the back/bottom of the frame, because the screws for the handles left a small scratch on our table.

Find some fabric or large paper and cut it to fit. Tip, I used the paper that comes in the frame as my template for the fabric size. Then print your photos; you can place them on a cardstock mat if you want. I now wish I would have printed the photos in sepia or black and white, so keep those options in mind. The ‘I ♥ MOM’ was made on picmonkey. Tape your photos onto the fabric so they won’t slide, then put your frame back together.
