When my friend Louise was at university, she famously exclaimed “I’m not buying these peas again!!” after accidentally sitting her pack of frozen peas on a warm hob, melting a hole in the bag.
Not realising her mistake, she blamed the pea manufacturer for the torrent of peas that landed on the floor. It’s been a favourite on our university ‘quotes wall’ ever since!
For Louise’s birthday, I decided to make her a card reminiscent of the pea incident. My hope is that when she opens it, the green hole-punch peas will go EVERYWHERE, reminding her of the mishap!
I’ve never posted an in-joke DIY before, but I figured that you could steal the confetti idea and change the caption for your own purposes, e.g. ‘Looks like you’ve peed yourself…’, or ‘Mind your Ps & Qs…’
All I used was a sheet of green card, a hole-punch, scissors, and a double-sided sticky foam pad. I printed the message for the front and inside on white card, using a free font from dafont.com, cut out the speech bubbles and stuck them on, before filling the card with dozens of hole-punched peas!
It’s fun card confetti, and a great practical joke too. It made Lou laugh anyway!
