Today I wanted to share this cute gift bag I made for my daughter's friend. She had a party at a splash park, so my daughter thought a mermaid would be cute on the bag..until she saw the Teddy Bear Parade Cartridge and wanted that.Lucky for her this cart has such fun images I was able to give her both.
I started by cutting my bear rather large to fill up the bag space and then cut all the fun layers of the mermaid costume. I wasn't really feeling the harp so I left that off and went in search of an oyster cut for a pearl.
For the letters I selected one of my go to fonts, Cherry Limeade. Some people do not love the mix of lowercase and capital looking letters on this cart, but I think it looks great and with a touch (okay large touch ) of Stickles I think they look even better. Very fun.
