A Home for Princess Mermaids

Over the past few days, you have met all of the Princess Mermaids in the Pixie Dust Princess Mermaids Collection. I thought they were so cute that I would turn them into paper dolls for my sweet grandaughter.


 Wouldn't it be fun if the little Mermaids had a place to live? Well they do!  SVG Cuts had the perfect file. The sand castle is from the Wet 'n Wild collection.

I cut strips of CS and folded them into triangles. Then they were glued to the backs of the mermaids so they could stand up.

Rhinestones were added to the turrets,

and shells were scattered for atmosphere.

Here is a close up of the castle decorations.

There is a cut out in the back for a LED votive candle, so the castle lights up. 

Check out the Pixie Dust Studio for these adorable images and many more. You'll LOVE what you find!

Top Tip
Here is my tip for Top Tip Tuesday:
Tired of the expense of buying new mats for your Cricut? Wish there was a less expensive alternative? Well there is!
Supplies
Painter's tape
Making Memories "Slice" Repositional Spray adhesive

   Place Painter's tape around edges of mat. Painter's tape is widely available at paint stores, hardware stores, and Walmart.  (The tape prevents sticky buildup adhering to the rollers on your machine.)


 Spray a light coat of repositional spray over mat. (This step is best done outdoors)

Remove tape, and mat is ready to use.
Making Memories "Slice" Repositional Spray is sometimes available at Archiver's. You can also order it on Amazon.
I saw the spray at Archiver's and thought I would give it a try. I'm so glad I did! It has saved me a lot of money!
