I really love to work small, so this little faux book box from Alpha Stamps is right up my alley (only 2 1/4" tall!) I had some gorgeous sea-themed scrapbook papers, some great collage sheets, and tons of beachy charms to pick from. Here's the little cover:


Fun coordinating paper on the sides:


And when you open it up: mermaids!


I used three copies of the same image + foam tape to create depth, then place some sheet moss, tiny shells, and faux pearls in front for that beachy feel.


It's a little bit of palm-sized mermaid magic on a cold winter day.  Cheesy

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
