Spellbinders Birthday Bicycle Tutorial

This Bicycle Die reminds me of my childhood, when I was a young girl - it was everyone's dream to have a bicycle - we would ride it everywhere and hang out with our friends.  To have a basket on the front - that was the ultimate - this bike would have been treasured by any of us....

While we are on that subject - who remembers banana seats and ape hanger handle bars - no doubt about it - if you had them - you had it all! LOL! They were the days weren't they!
