100, and looking fabulous!

Here's my second card for the same 100-year-old grandpa (if you missed yesterday's, click here):



I've been seeing these rolled-up-paper-candles around, and thought I would give them a try.  It's super-easy! I used a lollipop stick to make sure that the rolls would all be the same size, but varied the lengths a bit...

Since the candles were eye-catching enough, I kept the rest of the card pretty simple.  The "100" is from PTI's "fresh alphabet" set (it's my sister's, but I don't know when she'll be getting it back, ha!) and "looks good on you" is from "big birthday wishes."



Thanks for looking!

  4. I've never seen candles like this, but they are really terrific. If it anything more than just rolling up paper, perhaps you could post a link to a tutorial for those of us artistically challenged folks. I'm sure grandpa will be happy with this one.
