I’ve got so many files that I’ve never used! But I’ve been getting into making some “tiered tray” projects with files purchased online. But, being cheap like I am, I didn’t want to buy a tiered tray to put them on. Then I remembered - I’ve got the “In for a treat dessert tray” in the Premium catalog which I got when I first got my GF in March! And it works perfectly!
I haven’t painted this one yet, and don’t know that I will, although I may stain it to be darker. I may even get some colored felt to cut the bases out of so that they can easily be changed to match the season or whatever. I absolutely love how it works and how easy it is to put together. I haven’t fully “decorated” it, but this will give you the gist of it. I know that the ones you buy all have a little “lip” on the shelves, but this one works for me.
I also like the fact that not only can I make it in 15 minutes, but it’s no bigger than 10" around, so it doesn’t take up a lot of room. And if I want to take it down, I think I can store it safely in a gallon baggie as it comes apart easily too! However, I doubt it’ll be coming down, as I’m thinking of all the tiered tray stuff for the different seasons. What fun!
Definitely putting me in the holiday spirit!
That came out really cute! And you know, you could add a lip to the shelves by cutting another shelf for each one that has an inner cut (using the Outline function) about 1/8” to 1/4” away from the outer edge, then gluing it on. Hope that made sense.
Thank you for that idea @cynd11. It took me a minute for my brain to figure it out, but I did and I think it’s a perfect solution!
And thank you all too, @Jules, @ptodd, and @rvogt! After years of having the same decorations, I’m loving making new ones!
Wasn’t quite sure whether to just edit my last post on this, to respond a second time to @cynd11, or just respond to the last comment on here (which is mine). But I wanted to show everyone how @cynd11’s suggestion turned out - and it’s perfect! Thanks again @cynd11!
What makes it nice is that I can do all three levels on one board (lip only). The only problem I had is that I still have to open two files as I can’t seem to open two premium files on the same dashboard, and “drag and drop” doesn’t work for me (I have tried that with several different programs, and either I don’t know how to do it or my computer just won’t). But I got it done and I am thrilled!
Now I’ve decided I’m going to have to stain it, because I want it darker and I don’t think paint will give me the effect I want. But right now I’m loading it up with “fall” decorations! Whoohoo!
That did turn out nice. Really adds to it!
I can see that tray with sweet delicacies. Looks fantastic!
Thanks! I really like the little added lip to it.
Hello, I am making the tiered tray to display ceramic cupcakes that my fourth graders made for Parents night. I have the svg but it’s missing the largest circle in the dashboard. Can someone please give it to me? Or at least point me to where I can purchase it? Any help is appreciated. Thank you. Leslie
There are two separate files for this tiered tray. Did you open the second one? They would show as two files on your dashboard:
If you find it as annoying as us, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for folder support for multi-file……files. Maybe one day we’ll get it.
Thank you so much I did not realize that.
Yeah, many of the premium files have more than one file to them.
