A different kind of 50th

Submitted by: Heather C

Materials: Mostly paper

My plans for an over the top, surprise 50th birthday party were foiled so I got creative. I asked friends and family to send old-fashioned birthday cards to the birthday boy. I was aiming for 50 cards for 50 years. The goal was surpassed with a fabulous array of hand-made cards, letters filled with memories, trivia questions, altered $50’s, comic books … the creativity of the cards was the best part!
