I am back with another tutorial today! I have had this idea in my head for ages, but i have never had time to try it. I am so glad i did get round to it as its adorable!! This would be perfect for kids or even us adults! I will be displaying mine in the living room, its gorgeous and looks lovely at night time all lit up.
This little tank is so easy to make and all you need is some Card, acetate, Fish stamps or dies and a Tea light. The Fish i used were just some cheap dies i picked up on Ebay. I will put the links at the end of the post if your interested in them. The coral i used for the back of the tank are Tree dies from Alinacraft. Just use what you have. I am sure you have some Tree dies or even stamps you could use. The background paper is an Under the sea one from HobbyCraft. Again just use what you have. You could even just use glitter card for the back.
