It's definitely not a card

 Morning all.  As it's the start of another week today must be a new Make My Monday Challenge.  It's slightly different this time as we want 'Anything but a Card'.  Ok, the world's your oyster here.  I chose to put my origami skills to the test and created a gift box.

I have a really lovely pad of oriental papers and this fish one made me smile.  It also gave me an opportunity to use my Hero Arts pond die for the fish and the waterlily.  Our waterlily flowered for the first time this year.  It was so pretty.  The ribbon has been in my stash for ages so it was nice to be able to use it.  It's a bit too big to go on a card.

Please join in as I'd love to see what else you can create.

Thanks for reading.
