The challenge on This Thursday this week is to go Mojo surfing .
So here is where I went surfing

The above two were my main inspration to use clips and styring and cards with some sort of fold
But I also included below as extra inspiration

Thank you to all the above for their inspiration
So here are my two examples this week. There would have been more but have been so unwell that I couldn't do much crafting
I wanted to create a folded card that could include inchies, but in the end decided to create twinchies instead. So I folded a sheet of 12 by 12 to create this and adhered clips on each corner to create the tie closure,
I created the twinchies by double embossing with either blue or green embossing poweder. Then embossed with clear. The stamped images in white and embossed with white embossing powder. then added silver embossing powder to the edges. The images and border are from Tanda Stamps Art deco stamp set 1
I wanted to do something different with clip and string and a folded card This is what i came up with
I coloured the clip Blue on the outside and green in the centre which dosn't show up in the photo . Tied fibre around the clip adhered it to an inch square with inked edges. I then made two diagonal cuts at the base of the card and folded twice to create a plant pot shape. Then pressed it downwards so there wasn't a noticable gap when stood up . I made leaves in the fibre . Then with a craft knfe cut a small hole to thread the fibre into the plant pot. I then stmped my greting and edged with white soufflee pen
