hull and smokestack. Punch holes and stars in hull as shown,
then glue onto main ship pattern.
- Place ship on 8" x
10" white background paper (cover) then draw a line to mark
the horizon. Set the ship aside.
- Place cover on wax
paper. Tear red, pink, orange, yellow and blue tissue paper
into 1" wide strips. Brush decoupage finish onto the paper
above horizon. Lay overlapping strips of red, pink, yellow
and orange tissue paper onto wet surface to make different
shades for the sunset. Glue blue tissue paper strips below
the horizon for the water.

over the back of the ship. Place on the cover. Tuck, then
glue white confetti shreds under the top of the smoke stack.
Brush decoupage finish over the whole page.
- To make waves, crumple
pieces of white tissue paper then glue on top of the blue.
Make a "V" shape with one piece of crumpled paper and place
at the front of the ship. Apply icy gel to the edge of the
waves to make them sparkle. Set aside to dry. Trim edge
of paper with decorative edge scissors then glue onto blue
corrugated paper (coruboard).
- Punch 3 holes into
the same channel on the long edge of the coruboard about
1/2" from the edge. Punch one hole about 2" from the top,
