So I have been working on the Daily Marker 30 Day challenge and I have spent about 5 days on these, but I am so happy with the result. 

 

 All boxed up. 

All boxed up. 

I started by stamping all of my mermaids and coloring them, and then fussy cut them all.

Then I did some distress ink backgrounds to resemble water and then sewed tulle around the edge to make shaker pockets.

 I sewed circles on to make pockets.

Then I used my We R Memory Keepers DIY Confetti Punch to make "Bubbles" out of glitter paper and trimmed down the tulle.

Finally I sewed up the tops and attached them to A2 sized note cards. 

 

 Done. 

Done. 

I boxed them up with envelopes to complete the set and shipped them to a friend.
