What I sent Niki

I am pretty sure Niki has her package by now so I thought I would post what I sent her. I was floored by the octopus theme. I even told Val that I had no idea what to do. She had faith in me though and said I would figure it out. Then I went upstairs, had a look around and saw a styrofoam ball, some floral wire and some organza...






Some tentacle beads and a cork and paper hat and he was done......










I also drew and sewed up a little felt guy just because.....and then I made a sea inspired cupcake to match.....














I made a sea inspired tag, I found the perfect box for the cupcake at a garage sale and added some candy, rick rack and buttons to the package....Hope you like it Niki and thanks for the challenge Miss Val.....
