1/2” circle punch
2 jumbo wavy craft sticks
2 mini craft sticks

Hot glue/hot glue gun

1. Carefully glue the bottom of your two wavy craft sticks to make a triangle, leaving just enough room on the open end for the 2 miniature craft sticks to fit across.

2. Carefully glue the 2 miniature craft sticks across for the flat side of the triangle.

3. Lay out a piece of scrap paper and paint your mermaid tail triangle and let dry.

4. Use the 1/2” circle punch to punch out about 45 circle from a mix of your glittered and non glittered card stock.

5. Starting at the bottom point of your mermaid tail triangle, start carefully glueing the circles or mermaid scales from the bottom till the top.
