This is what they looked like prior to adding the pieced together pieces from the FIESTA file that you can find here: Scraptastical Kreations-Fiesta!
The FINAL Maracas...my kids are so excited to play with these and I can't wait to get some pictures of them enjoying them...it will give me one more thing to keep me busy Scrappin' My Kids!!!
