Flower and Leaf Serving Trays

The other day I made a serving tray with leaves. When I pushed up the sides of the form which was rectangular the corners were higher than the other part of the sides. Then it dawned on me that I could cut the corners out and miter them as I've done in sewing.  So that's what I did for this serving tray with flowers.

After I cut out the squares from the corners I decided to add them to the corners as an embellishment. I thought about adding some handles to these but couldn't come up with an idea I liked. I'll have to do some research on handles. Any suggestions?

Here's the first serving tray I made with the water color leaves. You can see from this angle but the corners are higher than the sides. I suppose I could have cut off the corners but I left them. I might go back and add some definition to the leaves on this one.

 I also made a few more of my window sill mini pots.

And here are a few heart ring dishes, hopefully I'll get them finished before Valentine's day. I'm working at the gallery in Hiawassee today and tomorrow is my caning class so I'll be busy the next few days. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.

  3. I love the corner treatment with the cone-flower tray. It adds to the structure, as well as looks so nice to have those extra outside flowers.

    1. Hi Dee, thanks, Betty is doing fine just weird scruffling up under bedcovers and blankets I put out for her, perhaps she is cold so she can keep warm that way which is a good thing.
