Origami gift...

There is a new 613 Ave C  challenge starting Nov 6th:  "ATG or the optional Twist: "Scrap Your Stash".  You have the month of Nov. to show your creative talents!   For details of the challenge and for some very creative ideas from the DT's inspirational contributions - click HERE!

I like to send money in my cards to the Grandkids... LOL, encourages them to call me!  I've started folding the bills into Origami that is specific to the person.  This one is a guitar because my granddaughter plays lead guitar in a band - I find videos on YouTube with tutorials on how to fold them.  I used an image [sent as a gift by my dear Canadian friend, Corina.  No source info available.] that appears to have her hand extended to hold the instrument.
The A2 Z-fold card base was decorated with scraps of DP from my stash to meet the optional twist of this challenge.             

Create wildly and color with abandon!
