Designer Tip: Give the octopus a little wobble.



  1. Card front: Place the card with the fold on the left. Cover with blue/green inked paper.
  2. Place an octopus Dazzles™ on acetate. Cut close to the Dazzles™ edge. Trace and cut the octopus shape on white cardstock. Color the back of the Dazzles™ with purple Spectrum Noir. Spritz with alcohol to make the color bead up. Let dry, and glue to the white cardstock shape. Trim the sides of the wobble spring so it is 1” wide. Peel off the backing, and stick to the back of the octopus Dazzles™. Peel off the other side, and stick to the card, 1¼” from the top and 1¼” from the right. Zot a ribbon knot on the bow tie.
  3. Place the border Dazzles™, sea weed Dazzles™, and bubble Dazzles™ as shown. Squeeze the Nuvo Glitter Drops inside the bubbles. Place the word Dazzles™ on the bottom right corner.
  4. Card inside: Glue 4½”x6¼” green ink paper centered. Back another octopus Dazzles™ in the same manor as on the card front. Glue on the bottom right cornere. Place the word and bubble Dazzles™ as shown. Fill the bubble Dazzles™ with Nuvo Glitter Drops.
