Birthday Boy

As soon as I saw this cutie from Make it Crafty I knew he was a "have to have". I really need more fabulous boy images in my collection and he is just fabulous - I love the way he seems to be popping out of the page. His name is "Peter Peek-a-Boo" for obvious reasons. He reminded me of the way I used to hide away when it was time for people to sing Happy Birthday to me - I even ended up under the table in tears on occasion - LOL.

I have been wanting to make one of these candle cards for a LOOOOOONG time and was amazed how easy it was - although I had to change the candle box dimensions to fit my novelty candles. 

And here he is with the candles in the "cake". A little trick - a couple of the holes I cut for the candles were too big to hold the candle up straight - so I squeezed some Tombow mono multi glue (in the green and white bottle) into the holes and let it dry. This glues dries clear but tacky so it adds a bit of grip to keep the candles in place.

You can find the tutorial for this style of card HERE.
