Best Fishes!


Day 219 - In and Out
This is my submission for 365 Cards to use weaving on your card. I had already done a woven background on this card, so thought I'd try something else. This is an origami fish that I found the directions for in my "The Guide to Hawaiian-Style Money Folds" book. Actually, my mom found the directions on the Internet years ago after we went to Kauai and saw them in a gift shop there. I made them for Christmas favors that year and used wrapping ribbon. Not sure where the directions were from, but here's a neat video that I found that shows how to do it with coconut palm fronds. Anyway, also used the WCMD #1 color challenge from SPCC (see below) and the Get Sketchy layout challenge (GS#8). TFL!
