April Fools

Do you like to play April Fool's jokes on people? I do, as long as they are simple and not malicious. 

Just as we are approaching the season of April showers, my husband lost his umbrella. He commutes on a train, so he needs a small one that fits in his bag. I happened to see one on a good sale, so I got it for him. Rather than just hand it to him, I thought I would have a little fun in honor of April Fool's Day.


I made the April Fools tags using the crown punch and punch 902, the cheers tag used punch 309 for the top flower and punch 306 for the pair of flowers along the bottom. I put different shades of paper behind each hole to give the cut-outs their color. 

I put the April Fool's tag on the umbrella.

and then I put the umbrella in a wine bag

so he will think he is getting a bottle of wine, and the April Fools joke is the umbrella. Hopefully he'll think it's funny.
