One of my husband's guy friends had a birthday party this weekend! His wife thought she would surprise him because gasp! He is an old guy now! He just turned 40!!! He is a new daddy and has been married for only a few years. He still gets to play cards with the guys though! His wife played up his love of the game with invitations that featured cards, poker chips and such. I knew it would be a safe bet to follow suit (Punny huh?) !! His cake had edible poker chips and she even baked cookies cut in the shapes of diamonds, hearts, clubs, and spades! Here's what I came up with for the birthday boy!
I saw this ribbon from Ribbon Trends at Hobby Lobby and some cute matching buttons from Dress it Up to match. The actual button was of the club (puppy feet, popcorn, clover). I cut off the back and hot glued it to a bigger red button.
I hope you are off to a great week - this one was lots of fun to make and an easy way to show I appreciate his friendship!
