An all year round surface that is great to craft on is a tray. Trays can be used throughout the year, during any season. You can design them to be as creative and unique as you would like. Take this squiggle tray designed by Kindra Boroff. This tray has a modern vibe to it, from the colors and the squiggly lines used. There is a special tool from Plaid that was able to create these squiggles. The specialty tool used is a fine tip bottle topper. This tool allows you to create lines by placing a top onto your FolkArt acrylic paints. How cool is that? Try out this tool when creating this tray.
