Cupcake Liner X-Ray Fish Craft

I have been slowly working on crafting my way through the alphabet with cupcake liners and decided it would be fun to make an X-Ray Fish for the letter X. I have seen a lot of crafts for X-Ray fish portraying them as looking like what you’d see on an x-ray machine, but in fact the X-Ray fish is actually a silver color with a red tail fin and yellow and black stripes on it’s fins. You can read more about them HERE.
