*****And now on to the show!*****

As soon as I saw Buccaneer Marci, I immediately thought of a birthday project with a pirate-y saying and here it is (you can click for a larger picture):

BuccaneerMarciPail1a
This is a 5" tall clear pail that I got from my local craft store. I used Make the Cut to design a divider for the pail and even printed the sentiments through MTC! In case you can't quite see it, the bottom says "It's y-arrr birthday!"

I watercolored Marci with just brown Tombow markers then cut her out and popped her up with foam boosters. I inked and crumpled the divider before I stuck her on to look like something old (like a treasure map).

Here's the back of the pail:

The top says "Enjoy your booty!" I filled this section with some chocolate coins and some cash with iridescent filler.

I hope you liked my project and thanks for hopping along with us! Your next stop is the incredibly talented Pops.
