Mermaid Box for Just Magnolia

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 12:00 AM
Hi Magnolia friends. It feels like forever since I've posted. I have been making stuff, I just have been trying to get some Design Team Projects done. Today I have a Window Box for the Just Magnolia Challenge. You can find the tutorial HERE. The challenge over at Just Magnolia is to use acetate. I wanted to do something different than a card. So I decided to do the box. I wasn't sure if I was going to do a acetate window or not, then I thought that "bubbles" would be cute. I used my crop o dile for the 2 small circles and then my smallest circle punch I believe it's 1/4 of an inch.

I cannot get enough of this Mermaid Tilda, and I haven't even got her yet! I had to bug my good friend April to send me some images while I anxiously wait for my DT package from Magnolia-licious! Thank you April!!!

I hate to give credit where credit is due and it was my brilliant 8 year old daughter's idea to put the rose in her hair. Genius isn't she? What an eye for details!

I will be back Monday with the new Wild Orchid Craft challenge.

I will be soon having some blog candies.. so stay tuned!
