Yesterday was my husband's birthday. We do not get much into gifts these days, but I wanted to do something special - make him a cake. His favorite is devil's food with chocolate butter cream frosting. Nothing fancy! But what to put on top?
Then I remembered Stephanie's money bouquets and it gave me an idea. The only paper punch I had was this 2 inch one. So I punched out some circles out of colored paper.
The only problem was they were circles. So I took one of them and cut out every other section. Then I laid it on top of a solid circle. I added brads to the centers. Yeah, flowers!
I had these sticks from making candy, so I used them.
I fastened them around the back of the stick and using a pair of pliers squeezed the brads tight on the back.
They still needed something and since I wasn't attaching money, I thought I would attach some ribbon. Then I decided to write some words on the ribbon. I used a magic marker to write the words, I Love you, Happy Birthday, Always and Forever, etc.
I hot glued these to the sticks.
Hey , it's his birthday. He can eat cake anyway he wants to. Right!
