I saw this idea in the an issue of Paper Crafts magazine and had to use it for my sisters 40th birthday.
The inside says 'Welcome to the Bifocal Babes Club!' and is printed out like an eye exam chart.
I made the 'glass case' from DP by Scenic Route Paper. (Love their stuff.) I typed on Word 'Happy Birthday' over and over again and printed it on the Cool Caribbean cs. I then typed the words in a bigger font and printed that out.
I couldn't find 'real' glasses that I liked so I enlarged the photo from the magazine and then traced the glasses on to the DP and used my white gel pen to add additional dots. I then cut out a transparency sheet and attached it to the glasses putting the bigger print cut out behind them. I propped the glasses up with glue dots and adhered to the printed CC paper. I then added the brad from Bo Bunny Press.
I think she liked it and it was fun to make.
Edited: Someone asked which issue the idea was from. It was the March 2007 PaperCraft issue. TFL.
