A 50 Funny! 50 Sucks Gift

I saw this on Sara's blog Sara's Creative Adventures. She's quite a talented lady. Her blog contains not only card but gift items and scrapbooking. Yes, scrapbooking!!! I know, I know. I'm getting closer and closer all the time to scrapbooking. I think once I get over that first page "shock" I will be fine. I just saw that Sara had a fabulous scrapbook page on her blog an I may have to give that layout a try! Just got to get my feet wet there!!

Ok, back to this post. This was the little project I was working on for my sister-in-law's 50th birthday!!! Sara used much bigger suckers than I did. Her's was for a 40th birthday so she needed 40 suckers (sucks). It looked pretty packed in there so I hunted around for smaller suckers. I probably could have gotten by with the larger ones. But this is ok, it gets the message across!!! LOL My sister-in-law will think it's funny and my nephew (her son) will eat all the suckers!!! He'll probably sneak them one at a time until it gets to the point to where you can tell some are missing. Then he'll be confronted and end up with all of the suckers anyway!!!

I used Rich Razzleberry card stock, Razzleberry Lemonade decorative paper, the Top Note die, Scallop Edge punch and the words on the front of the cube are from the "On Your Birthday" set. The wording on the Top Note piece was done on the computer. This was fun to make. I love to take a little break from card making and do some 3D stuff! I have wanted to make this since I saw it on Sara's blog but just didn't get around to it. And now I HAD to get it finished because my sister-in-law's birthday was here!!! I would LOVE to be ahead of myself for a change!!! Is it possible?

If you want to make one of these Sara has the instructions for it, just click here to find it! And while you are there check out the other things she makes! She's very creative!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

LOL, this turned out great. I love the sentimet you used on the front panel and the top note die for the banner (now I need to CASE your ideas for the next one I make) ;)

I made something similar for my husband's raunchy band friend. Instead of "50 Sucks", I wrote "50 BLOWS!" and used Blow-Pops. It was a hit. :)
