This weekend I gave a big 6-0 party for my hubby. When I was in Hawaii, I picked up these cute flag die cuts for the Big Shot Machine. They had about 10 different flag shapes in the package. In just a few seconds in the machine, it cuts the flag shape, embosses the edge, and cuts the small slits for the toothpick. Ah, great idea, right? I get back to Spokane and there is not a Big Shot machine to be had in the whole city. I went to one Michael's and then I called 6 stores!!! Sigh. So then my daughter and I, hand cut 100 flags. It took a lot longer and they were not as professional but they still looked cute on top of the cupcakes!
