How to Make a Beautiful Shimmery Mermaid and a Fun Freebie
I decided to make a pretty tag for my boxed swaps at the October Split Coast Stampers Event in Ilion NY.
The was my first time attending an event like this, what a blast!
Each 'Shoe Box' needed a tag or label to identify who made it and what was in it. I am really not sure why I picked a Mermaid. But I am glad I did! I also needed to use an adhesive that I could paint with a fine line and know it would hold my beautiful flakey glitter. Here is the end result:

Painted with Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen
In case you are wondering, I painted extra "clothes" on this mermaid.
And then very quickly added a layer of Best Glue Ever
The reason this is really the best glue for this project: it dries soft and flexible, it never makes your card brittle or rumpled. In this case, it allows the flake to retain a measure of dimension instead of flattening out. Another good reason - time, it took 30 seconds to lay the glue on it with the fine tip- No Oops! once the flake was applied, it took about a minute to dry - that is nice!
A little gentle pressure
And there they are 4 fast, fun labels!
Freebie for you!
Thanks for stopping by and hope you can use this!
