Mermaid's Bag of Treasures!

Time to share another sweet digi from Conie Fong.  This time I was inspired by this cute mermaid to make a beach pail gift bag!  I'm sure when you see Conie Fong's art, you will be inspired to make some new projects!  You can learn more about Conie and her art on her Etsy Site or Facebook.

Let's take a look at how I put this bag together! Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and check out the video below!  

If you would like a video on how to alter Cricut Cuts to make a project like this work, let me know in the comments below or on my YouTube channel.  You may also reach me by sending a private message.  I'll gladly post a video on that topic!
