Pop Up Birthday Card

With my Father-in-Law’s Birthday fast approaching, I had to come up with a way to present his gift during dinner. Mr.B, his mom, brother, and I pitched in together and bought ourselves {and my FIL} tickets to see Craig Ferguson while he was here. Of course, my FIL had no idea, and we wanted to come up with a clever way to surprise him.

I booked us a table at my favourite mediterranean restaurant, hoping to stretch his culinary horizons with food he was unfamiliar with, and after some delicious pistachio and rose-water dessert, I presented him with a pop-up box card.

The card itself was very basic, and when opened, Craig Ferguson’s head popped up, along with one of his common phrases {“What’s a come and a go?”}, as well as the indication that we had tickets to see Craig Ferguson. My FIL is very hard to read, and hard to buy for. When he was opening his card, I wasn’t sure what to think… up popped Craig’s head, and my FIL thought that was pretty awesome. Then he read “Tickets to Craig Ferguson” and he looked at me and said. “What? Tickets? For tonight?” in complete and utter disbelief. “Yes” I replied. “We’d better get going, or we’re going to be late!”.
