Birthday in a Tube

My daughter Korie turned 19 the other day.

With our current situation, a large birthday celebration was not an option. Even though the day was low-key and her gift small, I still wanted it to be a special day for her. After all, it is the day that celebrates her entry into the world — a day I anticipated for over a year.

So, I decided to get a little creative and this is what I came up with:

I started with a clear tube and rolled bills in all different directions and placed them inside.

Then, I used my Art Philosophy Cricut Cartride and Stamp Set from Close to My Heart to make the cupcake. I used Distress Ink and Distress Stickles to “spice” it up a bit.

Finally, I added a bit of twine from My Mind’s Eye and an eyelet and tied it to the bottle. Simple, but much better than handing someone a wad of cash, don’t you think?

And here’s my beautiful daughter on her 19th birthday:
