Yup, there's 40 suckers there!!! I did one a while back with 50 suckers. Now that was difficult to get into the Styrofoam square. 40 was much easier. I think 30 wouldn't be enough. You'd need a smaller cube for that or bigger suckers so the foam doesn't show.
I covered 5 of the sides of the cube in Bashful Blue card stock. On top of that I added squares of the decorative paper from the "Cheerful Treats" download. "Cheerful Treats" sounded like the perfect name for paper for a project like this!!! It was indeed cheerful!!! Once the dp was in place I tied a ribbon around the cube.
The words were printed out on the computer and punched out. I used the die cut to make the scallop. I glued it on a thin wooden stick I had. I don't remember what the stick was from but a chopstick will work too. Just remember, you are only allowed one set per dinner purchased. Don't go taking a bunch for crafting. I have a nice little stash of them because I ask for a set each time I order Chinese food. So be kind and only take what what you are entitled to.
Once I got the outside all decorated I added the word stick in the middle. Then I started putting the suckers in.
When I had made the 50th birthday one a while back I had gotten the idea from my friend Sara. She has "Sara's Creative Adventures" blog. Go check it out. She has a lot of fun things on there to make, great cards to see and other things to spark your interests!!
