Project Instructions

Paint first tray red and second tray blue.

While paint is drying, trim desired paper prints into strips or rectangle pieces. Once paint is dry, arrange pieces in tray as desired.

Paint a generous amount of decoupage glue on the front and back of strips, one at a time, and place on tray. As you place each one down, smooth out all air bubbles and press down firmly. Once all pieces are in place, paint a final coat of decoupage glue over the entire tray and set aside to dry.

Wrap brownie mix and brownie tattoos. Put in trays once they are dry, wrap tray with cellophane, and tie with ribbons.

Add a tag or card, embellishing with glitter if desired.


Use these as a party decoration, a neighbor gift, or a teacher appreciation present for the holidays.
