Fabric basket snap trays not only serve as a catch-all for your coins, keys, jewelry, etc, they are also extremely eye-catching with their endless possibilities in fabric design and shape. Make them square or rectangle, big or small, floral or checker patterned. After you've made one, you'll wonder how you did without. 

KAM plastic snap fasteners were used for the corners, which not only help create the tray shape, but add a nice pop of color to the finished design. Below are snapping trays using different materials and designs to inspire your next crafting project.

Convertible Snap Tray with Pocket Option

Fellow snapper Martha S. from Madcow Creationz added a convertible pocket option to her snap tray design. When not in use, the tray converts to a pocket, keeping all contents safe and enclosed. What a great idea!
