cracker tray

cracker tray , originally uploaded by chickenfoot.
some weeks back i had picked up a couple of cracker trays while thrifting. i think they were from the 60's-70's era. i thought it would be cute to make up some of our own, but i really wanted them to have some kind of scallopy edge. cutting the edge of the wood turned out to be not so great.(my jig saw skills suck eggs). so i went out looking for something else and i came across this adorable and tiny trim.
here is the result. kind of sweet, huh?
