A Last Minute Birthday Wish!

If you are like me there are plenty of times you remember someone's birthday at the last minute... too late for a trip to the store... but wait... SABOR Papers and Sabor Cutouts make it easy to make a birthday greeting in just a few minutes!!!

Black cardstock
SABOR - Ole Sentimientos
SABOR - Ole Picado
SABOR - Ramitos
SABOR - Ole Cutouts
Tacky Glue
Dew Drops
Glue Stick
Foam Dimensional Adhesives

Cut  Black cardstock 11 x 4 1/2 inches, and score at 3 inches and 8 inches, fold towards the center for a "gate fold".   When the card is folded it will measure 5 x 4 1/2.

Cut papers slightly smaller than 3 x4 inches for the front, adhere with Glue Stick. Add the cut out "Feliz Cumpleanos" (Happy Birthday).

On the front of the card add green Bazzil-Flowers use Foam Dimensional Adhesive  to pop SABOR - Ole Cutouts in the center, attach to the card with Tacky Glue.  With  Glue Stick  add other cutouts to the front as desired.

Cut papers slightly smaller than 3 x4 inches for the inside flaps, adhere with  Glue Stick.  Staple ribbon to tags from SABOR - Ole Cutouts "Te deseo lindo dia" (I wish you a beautiful day) and "Pide un Deseo" (Make a Wish).  Attach with Foam Dimensional  Adhesive.

Center inside add a flower like the ones on the front.  With  Glue Stick  add other cutouts as desired, then with Foam Dimensional  Adhesive add the piñata from the cutouts.

On the front add a few Dew Drops with Tacky GlueFinally glue a flower cutout to a small clothes pin.... this will hold the card closed.

I love using Tacky Glue on these quick projects as it dries quickly if you do not apply too much.  Glue Stick and Foam Dimensional  Adhesives don't have a drying time!!! 


Have a great day and come back tomorrow for another project from the design team!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
