What woman likes a birthday? I mean, sure we like to hear the ‘you don’t look a day over…’ and of course the presents, and a day to eat cake without having to count calories. But no woman enjoys facing the fact that we are another year older.
My best friend just celebrated her 35th, and leave it to me to bring my unique sense of humor to the occasion.
I love word play. Yes, turning 35 might ‘suck’ to some, but I say celebrate instead with 35 loli-pops to ‘suck’ on!
Can you imagine this sitting on a desk at work? Yeah, I got to thinking about that too…possibly offensive to some. So then you just turn it around to see another birthday greeting.
I painted a small box white, stuffed it with floral foam and added some paper. I used the Fanfare paper from CTMH since Sunny’s special day is the 5th of July, the red white and blue of it all just fit her.
I decorated the top as well with some paper, then added red white and blue buttons with some string to create a handle. So once the treats are gone, the box can hold things like paper clips on your desk, or potpourri around the house.
Give it a whirl, it’s fun quick and easy. But it also lends a little humor to a touchy subject for women.
