Eggs Dyeing & Display Tray

Quick and easy tray that can be practical 
to assist with dying of decorating Easter eggs 
with four circles to hold eggs. 
Center cross-post helps support platform center. 
For decoration and display, add accent shapes 
to show egg treasures for seasonal home accents. 
Create multiple trays for more eggs.
Measures approx. 5" x 5" x .875" deep. 

ASSEMBLY: 1. Identify and cut the shapes:
A main tray shape   B center slot-together supports
C top and sides accent decor shapes
2. Prepare the main tray shape by bending
carefully BACK along all perforation lines
at side panel edges and end tabs.
3. While the tray is still flat, position and attach
each of the accent shapes as desired.
4. Prepare the center support shapes by
bending back the top half-circle tabs as shown.
(NOTE that the support shapes were made
wider in the final file.)
5. Slot the two supports together
 in 'X' fashion as shown . . .
. . . and push together fully.
At top, re-bend the half circle tabs in radiating
6. Locate the center 'X' cross hair alignment dashes
on the backside of the main tray. Then . . . 
. . . position the center support over the 'X'
and glue the tabs in place securely.
7. Bend the side panels back to bring the straight
edge to overlap the adjacent tab perforation line,
and glue in place. Repeat for all 4 corners.
8. Bend the edge rim tabs back and glue to 
the inside of the tray.
Here is the completed, decorated tray.
