Happy Mer-May!

Good morning!  It's Marcia from The Frolicking Fairy on the Jaded Blossom blog today.  In honor of Mer-May, I decided to create this fun treat bag perfect for birthday treats or just for fun. My youngest has already decided it was made for her, so it will likely carry a number of very random items. :)

First, I started by stamping the mermaid from Mermaid Kisses onto watercolor cardstock and watercoloring with Distress Markers. Inspired by her headpiece and necklace, I die cut a starfish and shell from the Tropical Dies in colors to match -- the starfish in gold foil and the shell from purple. Next, I die cut the Goody Bag Die base from sturdy white card and the inner stitched panel from patterned paper in my stash. I inked the edges of the bag and stitched panel with Distress Ink and stamped a sentiment from the Mermaid Kisses stamp set on the top of the panel. I assembled the bag and attached all the elements. I think this would be precious as a party favor bag for a mermaid party too!! (Let your kids help you color!)

Until next time..
