Emma in Fishbowl

Hi all! Sorry so long between posts, but I am still trying to recover and it is slow with not much energy to do much!!! But, I have been able to work on some of the Custom Quilling DT projects and will share them after the first of the month. And, I have finished one of the projects that I have had on my "want to do" list, and here it is.
The project is called a "sliceform fishbowl" and you can see the project instructions here. When I first saw this fishbowl I knew that Emma the Mermaid and friends from Fred She Said would be perfect for it! I printed Emma and her friends (found here) out on 8 1/2 X 11 card stock and she fit perfectly in the fishbowl. The only thing that I would change is the weight of the card stock. I printed the bowl patterns onto a medium weight printer cardstock and it was a bit light and as you can see a few of the supports 'bend'. Next time I will print it out on a blue heavier weight solid core card stock so that doesn't happen. But, I had fun making it and I will send it to my daughter away at college. How you say? Well it folds flat and fits in an envelope!
It is really easy to do and looks so cute with Emma the Mermaid "floating" in the bowl. Also, check out awesome Whirly Flower Cake by my DT sista Carol H. on the Fred She Said's blog here along with a great challenge and a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate to the Fred She Said store. You could put any of her ocean friends and embellishments with her to change the scene. I still have some projects that I need to post and will get those out this week. Until then,
Comments welcome as always!
