My cousin is turning 50 this weekend, and a surprise party is planned. (Shhh!) Her husband requested joke gifts only, but who wants to get a lot of crappy "you're getting old" stuff? I decided to whip her up a little birthday tin featuring my favorite party girl (who I imagine is named Millicent). I gave her a festive hat, used alphabet beads to spell out "party", and used a piece from a bingo game with the number 50 on it. As a gentle reminder only, I swear!


And on the back, words to live by:


I hope she likes it. It's got to beat out a gift basket of Geritol and Depends.  Cheesy

It is so far above a gift basket of depends and geritol that it might as well be in space!

Haha!  Agreed!  Who wouldn't want a racky-gift for their birthday. (P.S. - I turn 50 in a couple of years.)  Wink
