Candy Bar Card for a Friend's 60th Birthday!
(Morayfield, Qld, Australia)
My finished candy bar card
Angie, I finally made a candy bar card like the ones you have shown us how to make here! My friend Bob turned 60 this week and I thought it would be a perfect idea for his party. It was a hit with everyone going out to dinner with him this evening!
It was fun making this. I used a piece of Styrofoam as a base for the card as it was sturdier than construction paper and I thought it would be easier to hand around at a dinner party.
Also, I could use my straight pins from my sewing box to attach the words and candy bars. (I wrote a little tutorial for how I made it over at PaperCraftCentral
in case anyone wants to take a closer look :))
My card said...
We know you need a BOOST now the CRUNCH(ie) has come and you have reached that (Cherry)RIPE old age of 60, so here’s some advice. Take some TIME OUT to DREAM. Go on PICNICS with the (Turkish) DELIGHTful love of your life. Be (Cara)MELLOW and try not to FLAKE when out with friends.
Happy Birthday to our OLD FAVOURITE friend. Have a CADBURY DAIRY MILK CHOCOLATE day!
Love from your pseudo sibling and his wife, Colin & Susan XXX"
Thanks for the idea!
Your candy bar card for your friend's 60th is absolutely brilliant!
I love the idea of using the Styrofoam. I can see how that would be nice and sturdy for the finished project.
Thank you so much for adding your card here for all of us chocoholics to learn from and drool over.
Papercraft Central is really looking great. You have some beautiful ideas there and very clever ideas.
