Beach tag

Since it is summer, and I love anything to do with the beach; this morning I created another mermaid tag. The mermaid was from a napkin and I adhered it to a tag that I made to fit the piece.  Stamped wet and wild and  then machine stitched in iridescent metallic blue thread a piece of dark blue  netting over the tag. 

I found some small wood pieces in the mark down bin amongst a lot of buttons at JoAnn Fabric's yesterday. The buttons and wood piece packages sold  for 50 cents. I bought the 2 sea themed packages that were in the bin. In the package was a scallop shell, starfish, seahorse, 2 fish,  and a nautilus shell. I covered the starfish wood piece with green glitter glue, and when the glitter glue was dry I glued it on top of the netting. Punched a hole in my homemade tag and add fibers.

Do you love the sea? How about mermaids?
