From the blogger: "I love to eat dishes with scallops, and I keep the big shells that they are served in. I have quite a collection. I also have a passion for vintage images and natural history illustration. I decided to combine the two by printing some gorgeous colorful vintage fish illustrations on the shells and some lovely antique patterns on the outside. The result is stunning, and these trinket dishes not only look really good but are very handy, too. They would make a lovely homemade gift."

Why You'll Love This Recycled Craft

1. Personalized and Unique: By using your own collection of shells and printing custom vintage images on them, you can create one-of-a-kind trinket dishes that reflect your personal style and interests. These dishes will stand out as unique pieces in your home or make thoughtful gifts for friends and family.

2. Upcycling and Eco-Friendly: Instead of throwing away the shells from your favorite scallop dishes, repurpose them into beautiful trinket dishes. This craft project allows you to reduce waste and give new life to items that would otherwise be discarded. It's a great way to be environmentally conscious while also being creative.

3. Functional and Decorative: Not only do these decoupage shell trinket dishes look stunning with their vintage illustrations and antique patterns, but they are also practical. Use them to store jewelry, small trinkets, keys, or other items on your dresser, nightstand, or entryway table. They add a touch of charm and elegance to any room while helping you stay organized.
