The card is a 12" x 12" cut in half and glued together long ways (up and down), the "ear buds are white labels cut into a circle and wrapped around white bendy wire - something I had in my wire drawer - I think it is some sort of jewelry or bead wire.
Here is some iCash
for your new iPod!
Clever, huh? ÜÜÜThe picture really doesn't pick up the plastic over the "screen" but it's a piece of Shrink It plastic. The square is cut from Mini Monograms at 8".
I hand wrote the Happy Birthday Aaron in black sharpie.
The larger circle is cut 6" Mini Monograms - wrapped in aluminum foil for the "silver" look.
The smaller circle is cut 4" on Mini Monograms, gold brad attached everything to the card and just drew arrows and doodles in black sharpie.
My nephew and godson is celebrating his 11th birthday party soon and when I asked what he wanted he said "Well, you see Aunt Tracy - I'm saving my money for a new iPod so cash would be good!!!" - well, there I had it.....no shopping for just the "right gift"; hounding the stores, standing in line....only to be frustrated because what do you really get an 11 year old???? So...CASH is always the right size and the right color for everyone, right? LOL
Anyhoo's - here is the birthday card I made for him in the shape of an iPod.
Thanks for stopping by and for your comments. They really make my day!
