Goldfish Bowl ShakerTag

I needed a goodie bag tag for some cookies that I was giving to people who work in a pet store and did a favor for us.  The new stamp set that I purchased at HM Ben Franklin Crafts seemed perfect for this project.  The tag began with stamping the bowl image on a 4" square of card stock.  The interior of the bowl was fussy cut and a pencil was used to draw a line inside the cut space onto another 4" card stock piece. This second bowl interior was cut out too.  Two pieces of clear film were formed into a pocket with foam tape and filled with acrylic dew drops and Queen Co. diamond toppings. This  clear pocket was taped inside the  card stock fish bowl windows. A 4" square of blue card stock was stamped with green plants and fussy cut stamped and colored goldfish were glued onto the scene. Finally, the decorated blue square was taped to the back and die cut 'thanks' glued to the front of the tag.  I was happy with the final resulting tag and the fact that I could use up some of my card stock scraps which are um-mm-m overflowing my craft table and expanding daily!

So pretty, the goldfish really look like they're swimming in the bowl. Perfect tag for your cookie gift.

OMGosh...this is a fabulous card/tag! I just recently started learning how to construct these shaker type cards and know they take quite a bit of time and work to create all the layers...you did such a beautiful job with this! I actually also purchased this stamp set at BF recently but haven't had the chance to play with it yet. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration...I hope you don't mind if I CASE this project from you!
