A Mermaid Box

kudzukweenJanuary 10, 2009

I used an empty cigarette box and transformed it into an underwater scene. It's still a work in progress, I hope to finish tomorrow! Use an old internet cd box, Altoids tin, or anything else you were going to toss in the trash and make one,too!

Finished. I used a lot of glitter, and some double sticky foam tape to apply the pieces. Seashells from my collection,sequins. I may add some pearls somewhere,too.

Thank You so MUCH, ya'll! I'm in the middle of a making a few more, so you can tell I really liked the finished craft, and it was fun! I plan on going to Michaels and see what they have in the scrapbooking die-cuts section.

I did add some more sequins and pearls! Oooh, and more glitter!

I found this really nice black tissue paper with bits of glitter in it, and I used it on one of the backgrounds of my newest ones.
