Oh my…has it really been a year? It has! HAPPY BIRTHDAY Pop Goes the Page! It all started with this post. Then we hit 50 posts. And Monday’s story time project was actually our 100th post! Can I get a woo-wee?
I’m also delighted to announce our birthday contest winner! Preschool teacher Melissa Holt crafted the lovely birthday poster you see above. Not only is it a big pink tissue paper cupcake, it is a big pink tissue paper cupcake with a re-purposed paper bag bottom. I like me some cupcakes, and I like me some recycling.
But wait! There’s more! Sticking out of the red balloon is a little tab that says “Lift.”
And the front of the balloon lifts to reveal the words “Happy Birthday!” Super cute!
The crowning touch, however, is a small arrow tab at the bottom of the cupcake…
Push the arrow and a flaming birthday candle rises from the top of the cupcake! YES!
Congrats Melissa and THANK YOU to everyone who sent birthday wishes. Here’s to another year of creative literacy & library love!
