Origami challenge with Daring cardmakers

This is my card I made for the

Origami challenge with Daring cardmakers.
I made 2 origami octopus' then made 2 top hats ,2 moustaches and a walking stick all out of felt.I then made a monocle out of jump rings one large and 7 smaller ones for the chain.Then stamped 3 Sheena sentiment stamps onto desert storm card stock .I made a box card out of centura pearl card stock and die cut a spellbinder die shape to look into.I made a base to raise up the octopus'.I used craft card for the octopus' to stand on.I assembled the elements and added some fabric rag scraps.I raised the sentiments to stand out.Loved making this card never tried origami before and bet it would be lots easier with origami paper rather than scrapbook paper.
Hope you like my dapper octopus'

A fan I made out of tags

This is a fan I made out of tags I cut out of Carleys most recent paper pads.I cut out 12 tags 4 out of 3 different designs with pink and green colours on them.Then I distressed the edges and stuck them in a fan shape.Die cut out of green creata mirrorboard and a joy die out of pink/purple colour.I stuck lolly sticks at the ends like a fan has.Then added ribbon and braided them.Finally I attached some chain with charms and beads in coordinating colours.Enjoyed making this but I had made the bag for the challenge just thought I would put this picture on as it was fun and I like it.
