Scrappy Moms Peek: Hooray for Birthdays!

Happy Tuesday!  I hope you are having a good week so far.  I have another sneak peek of the brand new Hooray for Birthdays set from Scrappy Moms Stamps!  I have been wanting to try making little paper "candles" for awhile, and I'm so glad I did.  It's a great way to use up a few pretty paper scraps.  I can't wait to try these on a birthday scrapbook page.

To create the "candles" I trimmed my scrap pieces to 2 x 4" and then ran a little bit of ATG tape down one end.  Once I secured the end, I just added a little piece of baker's twine to the top to create a wick.  Easy!  They at least fooled my three year old because she asked me why I used birthday candles on a card.  

Here's another peek at the brand new set!
Hooray for Birthdays!

Materials Used:
Nicole is supposed to have her first EVER school program tonight, but she's been sick since Saturday.  We have a doctor's appointment today, so hopefully it's just a cold and she'll feel better in time.  So...that's where we will be this afternoon at 1pm.  Think of us because it will take a lot of patience to survive the pediatrician's office in December in the middle of the day at what is normally Nicole's nap time.  Good times.  :)

Love this idea for candles!! Your card is so pretty!

I hope Nicole is well soon. It's no fun being sick and missing out on her first program.
