Mermaid Tails

1

Hello again! I truly hope you’re all staying safe despite everything that is going on in the world ❤

These are adorable mermaid tails! They are larger-than-mat cut outs used for backdrops. Matching letter blocks that spell “two” for a birthday party.

Both cut outs are 27 inches from top to bottom. They also include the child’s name. The cut out below is spray painted with a dull shimmer gold. I sprayed the entire tail base that is cut from of a standard poster board and then I adhered the different cardstock scales and letters. Since it was spray painted, I was able to cut it out as one whole piece.

This tail below, however, was cut out the same way, but the client wanted a gold mirror finish. The mirror cardstock only came in 8.5×11 so I had to strategically cover the base with the gold foil. Then the cardstock scales were adhered on top of that.

The tails on these letter blocks were Cricut Print-Then-Cuts. I did that so I wouldn’t have to glue such small scales individually. Also, their tail bases are a gold glitter pattern. The letters match the gold foil on the tail.

Love y’all! And I hope y’all love each other 😍 see ya next time!

My sweetest friends! I miss all your gorgeous faces 😍 I’m sharing with you this beautiful corner set that was intended for a dessert table backdrop. Strictly 65lb red cardstock and gold foil cardstock (Michael’s Craft Store). This was tricky because usually I’d use multiple colors or variant shades to add depth and contrast.

Thanks for visiting! I’ve got a few more projects squirled away to share with you soon. Please let me know what you think of this corner set ❤
