Several of my customers have asked about the Mayflower on page 31 of the Stampin' Up catalog. After staring at the catalog photo for a while and taking a look at actual Mayflower photos this is the template I came up with. My version of the Mayflower is more like the actual Mayflower (flat at the back and tapering to the bow) than the Stampin' Up version. Also, instead of using a stick for the mayflower mast, I came up with a mast that can be made out of cardstock and attaches easily with three mini glue dots.
The ship is approx. 6-1/4" from Bow to Stern.
The height is approx. 2-1/2" from base to the highest point of the deck.
The mast is 7" tall from the base.

Great idea and details ~ TFS! My DH is a Howland descendant, the guy who nearly drowned when swept overboard in a storm at sea on the crossing...by God's grace he was able to grab a rope trailing in the water...
