Happy Birthday to my Mom

Here's to hoping my mom doesn't read this blog! We had this little present delivered to her desk today! And of course we didn't sign it. Brilliant?

I won't state how old she turns today because that would just be tacky, but I will tell you that we only needed one (big) bag of Dum-Dums. And there were a couple left over (minus the one I needed to get me through the project.) I got this great idea from my friend Alice. This project was a breeze with my Big Shot! (Basket from the Target Dollar Spot, but it was $2.50 - still completely worth it!). The suckers are stuck into a half floral-sponge-dome (sorry, I don't know the technical name).

I used the Embosslits Simple Flower and the Embosslits Cherry Blossom. These folders emboss and cut all in one slick motion. A scrap of 2"x2" is all you need. I finished the flowers before my dum dum was gone.

Here are the two folders open.

Place the paper inbetween the folder and close. The top photo is already closed. See that side says PLACE THIS SIDE DOWN. That's important.

Here are the two folders, with paper, closed, down side down.

This is what you get after you crank 'er thru the Big Shot!

Pop 'em out (and check back for great ideas using the negative image of Big Shot Dies!)

Here's a closeup of the two embossed and cut flowers. They're great for cards, scrapbook pages, tags, picture frames, and the occassional birthday bouquet.

I can't believe I missed this post! I love the idea of using the sizzlits! I need to make a few dozen or so these!
