2 of my favorite words, Cute & Sparkly, describe these little Mermaid Brooches! To Die 4 on recycled super stiff cardboard, which used to be packing material that came with some transfer sheets (i think..) Cutting is the tricky part, cause if the board is bent, its integrity is lost. But I have a good deal of fun with these cuties. Wait till u c the next ones!!!! You'll just Scream !!!!
