I used Mandy's sketch over at Limelight Papercrafts to decorate this little box that I made. The template was purchased at Papertrey Ink. I am in LOVE with Lily at the Beach stamps and just couldn't resist using the Mermaid stamp again. I used watercolor pencils and a blender pen to color Lily. I paper pieced the lower part of her body, sprayed it with glimmer mist, and then outlined with a glitter gel pen. I embossed the Nestie circles and punched holes around the edges. I used a Fiskars shell punch to make a border around the box lid. Buttons were threaded with embroidery floss and tied in a knot. CS is Bazzill and DP is K&C Co. "Classic K Bailey." Stamps are Pink Cat Studio. Buttons are by "Dress It Up." Rhinestones are Hero Arts, and ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.
