My Creative Time May Release Blog Hop: Mustachio Straws

by Veronica

It's here, it's here! The May Release Blog Hop is HERE!!! I'm sure you hopped here from Trell's blog, but if not, take a gander over to Emma's blog to start the Hop from the beginning.

Today I have a SUPER simple project for you! There has been some hair raising excitement over mustaches lately (See what I did there? Hair raising... *giggle*). What's all the fuss about? I don't know, really. But they sure are CA-UTE! I might be a bit biased as I'm married to a Mustache - well, a MAN with a mustache...

Not wanting to be left out this Summer, I thought it would be fun to create some fancy Faux-staches that I can 'wear' while enjoying a cold beverage.

Like I said, this project is SO simple to make! First I cut out the mustache dies included in the new What's Growing On? set by My Creative Time (on sale, along with the ENTIRE release until midnight TONIGHT) in brown card stock. I then punched a little more than half a circle hole in the bottom of the 'staches using the large hole in my Crop-a-Dile. All I had to do after that was slide the mustaches onto my straws (I recommend sliding them into one of the grooves on the bendy part - they'll stay that way). Voila! Mustachio Straws complete!

What's Growing On? Stamp & Die Set
Funny side note: I'm pretty sure the neighbor boys jumping on their trampoline now regard me as the Crazy Neighbor Lady after watching me during my outdoor photo shoot. *giggle*
