Mustache You To Be Mine

 Back to me procrastinating on Valentine's Day….last Vday, we started our Valentine's almost three weeks early. Mostly because of Annabella's attention span, we would do a couple a day but also because I like to get stuff done! This year just rushed over here! So here is a last minute homemade card idea for any of you procrastinating, busy moms.
 I had to do over 20, and it didn't take a lot of time at all!

You need:
Card Stock
Mustache punch/or stencil
Popsicle sticks
Glue gun
Paint pen/sharpies/stamps/sticker letters
Razor blade

I bought some of the cards at Michael's and some in the dollar section at Target. When I first started this I was going to use a stencil. You can just google stencil and go from there. Then I saw a mustache punch in the scrapbooking isle at Target and snatched that bad boy up! (it saved me soooooo much time!) I used glitter card stock. It's my favorite. It's thick and who doesn't love glitter! I bought turquoise,purple,black,red and pink so they could be for girls or boys. I had planned on stamping the "you a ?" part, but the cards were too glossy and the ink wouldn't dry right, so I just used a sharpie and wrote it on. The inside I used a "be mine" stamp from Michael's. You could hand write any of this, use stamps, or foam letters.

-I started by opening the card and slicing two small slits into the front of the cards.

-I then punched all of the mustache's out.
-Put a dot of hot glue at the top of the popsicle stick and attached the mustache's.
-When that is dry, insert the popsicle sticks into the slits.
-At this point you can really do what you want. Again, I did the "be mine"stamp inside and added some stickers, then had Annabella sign her name at the bottom of them!!
-Put cards inside of the envelopes and then let your little one draw pictures on the envelopes and add Valentine's Day stickers.
