Some occasions call for a set of greeting cards – so here is one way of making a very special set of invitation or thank you cards. Although there are many many simple print making techniques that can be used, I really like this polystyrene tray print making method. It is simple to do and you are also recycling at the same time. Note that if you want to do text, you will need to do it in reverse so that it prints correctly.
ty – we may have collected a few and they are “under the sink” as we speak” – since upcycling is totally my thing too we really like this idea and look forward to trying it out.
Oh, good question! Yes they are the ones like the meat trays from the supermarket. I usually use the ones that have had vegetables packed on them (although I try not to buy vegetables on polystyrene trays if I can help it) or meat that is not ‘drippy’ like the little red party sausages (I call them ‘cheerios’). I just wash the tray with dish-wash and dry it and I have never noticed them smelling, and sometimes I have saved them up for ages before using them.
are these “polystyrene” trays like meat trays from the market – where can they be bought – is there a source to buy them from – how does one sterilize trays they have collected – we really love the design and whole process – thank you for your help
