This year we are actually getting our Valentine’s Day cards ready before Valentine’s Day! I like my kiddos to be involved in making their Valentine’s and I usually try to encourage something non-sugar attached to it, but this year they really wanted to give a treat. So, thanks to my mom for the idea we made it a fun treat! I think they turned out pretty dang cute!
Here is the fun…
Here is the card….
What You Need:
- Paper for the card – we just happened to have red
- Black or brown paper for the mustaches
- Razor blade or knife
- Glue gun
Step 1: Cut out mustaches using a template to trace them or some sort of paper cutting machine. I found a really nice lady near me who was able to cut them out for me using her Sillouette.
Step 2: Hot glue mustaches to suckers. A tiny dab works great and helps them last longer, so they can play with them.
Step 3: Print out your cards with your mustache phrase. We used “i “mus-tache” you to be my valentine!” I made the “must-ache” a lot smaller to fit under the sucker. You can kind of see it in the picture.
Step 4: Cut a slit in the paper using your razor blade or knife. about the length of our smaller “mustache” worked great…so about an inch long. I actually just used our kitchen knife because I misplaced my razor blade! Ghetto? Mabye, but it worked! lol
Step 5: Stick sucker mustaches through slit and secure on the back with tape.
Step 6: Enjoy!!! Easy enough that my kiddos can help me stuff and tape (older kiddos can use the glue gun). If you want to get fancy, you can make the card into a heart or circle or use some fun scissors to edge it. Whatever you do, have fun!
I seriously love this picture!
