50 Sucks

This is the little gag gift I made for my Mom who turned 50 this week. She absolutely loved it, and laughed like crazy as soon as she 'got it'! This is a small paint can, covered with Bella Rose DSP, I used a few of the patterns. Chocolate Chip CS around the band was punched with the Scalloped Edge and the scallop in the center is from the Scallop Circle 2 Big Shot die. I stuffed the can with grocery bags, and arranged 50 Dum Dum suckers in an flower arrangement. I stuck silk leaves all around to make it pretty. The sign is a Top Note die for the Big Shot (SU exclusive), and is attached to popsicle sticks with glue dots. I wish I had some floral foam, but this was SO last minute, and there wasn't even time to go buy any, so the suckers would fall out easily if it was moved around a lot. Definitely go with foam if you do one! However, it turned out great, and she LOVED it!
