Under the Sea Book Fair Decor

This year, the Book Fair theme is Under the Sea.  They gave me a dark blue paper to make the window poster.  Well, the dark blue looked more like a dark sky to me so I decided to add a boat bottom!   I used some rolled white paper to make the boat form.  I trimmed kraft cardstock 3" wide in two lengths - 8 1/2" and 11".  I inked the edges with Vintage Photo ink and adhered them on top of the white paper with my ATG gun.  I trimmed the edges and adhered the boat to the poster.

I added the Under the Sea letters on the bottom and seaweed on each side.  I planned on adding other sea creatures but it was getting crowded and hard to read the words at the bottom. 
I found the sea creatures on my Silhouette Cameo - most of them came from the Silhouette online store.  I cut some sea creatures 3" tall for our Media Specialist to use to decorate the library. 
Tanner wanted a Nemo fish - this is the closest I was willing to make!!
I also make 4 menu posters for her to hang inside the school.  I wanted a sea creature holding a sub sandwich.  I used the crab and a hamburger.  I used the bottom bun for both the top and bottom of the roll.  I cut the hamburger patty out in pink to resemble ham.  I cut the pickles red for tomatoes.  I have to admit - creating the sandwich was almost as fun as making the boat!! 
Here is the finished poster.  I tore light brown cardstock to look like sand.  I inked the bread with Vintage Photo ink. 
I love making these decorations every year for our Book Fair!
I saw the poster in the front window at school today and had to add this picture!!
