to fill your stomach - your mum

I'm So Glad You Were BornLots of you will have seen that one of our team recently had a big birthday here at Mums on Top.  We had a great day celebrating but we wanted to share with you the coolest little birthday project ever.  We found it on the blog Oh Happy Day years ago and were excited to see that it was still there when we went for a little look earlier this month.

The project is so easy to do that it almost runs itself but the result is spectacular.  First you need to download the Oh Happy Day printables.  The printables download as a folder of 25 individual postcards.  When you print them off they join together to make one beautiful poster that says “I’m glad you were born”.

To get the project underway you either email each file individually to 25 friends of your birthday girl or you take the whole file to the printers and get them to print it onto the heaviest card they have and post them to your friends (we did the latter).

The folder of 25 individual files comes with a handy dandy letter of instructions and ‘how to’ photos that we also printed off and sent with the files.  The letter also contains guidelines on when to post your card so that things don’t arrive too early and spoil the show.

The result? A very happy birthday girl, a wonderful set of messages from 25 of her closest friends and a beautiful poster to remember the ‘significant’ day.
