Tiered Tray Ideas for Valentine's Day

3 Materials
1 Hour

Here is an easy and fun project for decorating a tiered tray for Valentine's day using only scraps and leftover pieces of scrapbook paper and ribbon. Literally free!

First, I began with 2 pieces of scrap wood. They were leftover from other projects and as you can see, not particularly clean.

I sanded the edges of each piece of wood then painted them white.

When the glue dried I used hot glue to glue the 2 blocks together.

I'm using a mini glue gun here but I have many that work equally as well.

Next, I printed out the words I wanted to use on the spines of my books.

I cut the paper into a strip that fit the spine of the books and used Mod Podge to adhere it.

Then I grabbed a small piece of leftover scrapbook paper and glued it to the top of the stack.

Your stack of books can be made with 2 or more blocks.

Using scrap gingham ribbon I tied the bundle together and added an embellishment.

You can make this book stack to fit any holiday.

I added mine to my tiered tray for Valentine's Day!
