I wanted to do something different for my mom other than 50 sucks like I made for my dad last year. I originally was going to put 50 is cool with the york peppermint patties, but my husband came up with the saying that I used. I wanted to have 50 items, but did not have enough room for 50 patties, so I used 20 patties and 30 peppermints. The patties are on scalloped circles that I punched with a 1 7/8 inch punch and I printed out the shape and sentiment on the computer. It says: "You are still in "Mint" Condition, Even if you are half a century Old. Happy 50th Birthday!" We wanted it to be a funny saying, so this worked. I did not use the hippo on this one, even though he has been my theme, but I did try to use the same colors that I have been using on the hippo items.
