I have a cousin who's turning 50 whose celebration is tomorrow. The invitation said "no gifts" but I wanted to give her something special for this milestone. If you want to see all the photos more close up, go to my web gallery, where there are 10 more photos: http://picasaweb.google.com/jnahrsta...ayFlapCard2007
The basic layout is a 12x12 sheet scored at 4" on each side, then cutting out the four corners and going from there. It's a really fun project to invest time in, and, I hope, a special keepsake for Cindy. TFL!

I adore this idea! I bet she loved the candles.....but would be scary to see 50 all laid out like that!! Love the colors too, black looks so sharp with everything! Did you almost go crazy cutting those candles?! Love it!

I said it was a project that takes time! :-) The candle cutting didn't really take as long as you'd expect. BTW, the flap that shows the sentiment from "That's Nice" is at the link, for those of you who are wondering...
