The stickles were still a bit wet when I took the picture, but you get the idea. These were super easy to cut and assemble, but they were kind of plain. To add some shizzle, I simply ran the cards through my Sizzix texture boutique using a Swirly Cuttlebug embossing folder for the top portion of the insert (simply leave the rest of the card hanging out of the folder), and using the Swiss Dots embossing folder for the wrapper. A little chalk to accent the swirls, a Happy Birthday stamp, and a dab of stickles and I was done.
My dog Tabitha kept me company and I couldn't resist snapping this photo of her sleeping to the sound of my Silhouette humming. Isn't she precious??
