This tray is a tribute to my father-in-law, who passed away right before Father's Day in 2011, from cancer. He was only sick for a few months before he died at the age of 73. He was a very strong, and vibrant man, who love life. I wanted to make a tray to celebrate him. We were "blessed beyond measure" to have him in our lives. I was especially blessed to have him in my life as he stepped into a father role for me when my own dad passed away suddenly, in 1997.

To make the tray:

1. Trim 12 pieces of black cardstock to fit the openings of the tray, approximately 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 inches each. Use these pieces of cardstock as your canvas for each ATC configuration.

2. ATC 1: Using black archival ink, stamp the eye chart from the Eye Chart stamp set onto the burlap. Allow ink to dry, and then fray the edges of the burlap. Tie twine in a knot at the top of the burlap. Use fabric glue to adhere the burlap to the black cardstock. Ink chipboard letters with Schoolhouse pigment ink. Allow to dry and attach the letters to the bottom of the burlap. Adhere the ATC to the tray.
