My Origami Shark Necklace - made out of card-stock, wire, thread, paint, chain, and my hot glue gun.

I used this: http://youtu.be/MxqFdiCPS5k tutorial to make the shark head.
Then, I painted the teeth on and glued a wire inside of the origami puppet to make sure the mouth stayed open.
The fin is cut out of the same paper I used to make the head... it's hot-glued that to the top.
Next, I cut two of the fish out of orange paper, and painted the same design on each piece.
I got my tread and hot glued on of the fish on each side... like a sandwich.
I tied the string onto the wire inside of the shark puppet and hot glued the knot so it wouldn't untie. Last, I made wire loops and hot glued them into the folds on either side of the shark head, and attached the chain to those loops.

Hope you like it!
