Best friend quote

When we moved across the country, almost 6 years ago, we realized just how important it is to have great friends. They become family away from home. We were definitely blessed to have met some amazing people who have become such a big part of our lives. One of my good friends had a birthday. I wanted to make something special for her.

I saw this quote on Pinterest & fell in love with it. How true is this statement--
'Nothing compares to the stomach ache you get from laughing with your best friends'.

I loved it, and I know my friend did as well.
It is fitting for the group of friends I have gained here.
I love them all dearly.

I printed the words on card-stock, cut out 2 hearts from book pages, then glued them on, creating a 3D effect. Very simple.


I also decided to bring a few cupcakes to dinner that night. And after seeing these adorable toppers, I knew I had to make some myself. I simply cut small circles, folded them in half & glued them, then folded them again & glued. Apply all your little poofs to a small Styrofoam ball with more hot glue. Each topper took one felt sheet to make.

So if you have a great friend in your life, pass this message along to them, I know they will love it!
