Making a Mustache from dies and punches

Pin It
HI all, its been a while since I last posted. with work outside the home its taken me a while to catch up. We had Madaleines 17th birthday

 

We bought her a spinning wheel and she is having fun ex-experimenting!!
Ben is almost set now for his trip to Nepal..... a lot of excitement in his camp. Beth finally got the cast taken off her wrist but has a lot of physio to do on it.
So I've been playing again with the paisley die set and came up with a range of mens  mustaches just by folding a piece of card stock in half and cutting it with your die.... pic below. We had fun at a wedding recently with this. they could be put on sticks or make a finger ring for them like i did.

I also just finished making this shawl.... here is the link for the pattern  http://ootycoil.blogspot.com.au/2012/02/lace-love.html


 any way sit back a take a look at how i made these cute mens mustaches...enjoy
  Blessings to you


 
and a last thought
“Knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 
But let patience have its perfect work, 
that you may be perfect and complete, 
lacking nothing” 
 (James 1:3–4, NKJV)

Only you can see a mustache in a Christmas ornament. Thanks for sharing. Where did you get the background paper?? It looks cool.

Hi Valita. Love reading about yours and the family's exploits. Cool spinning wheel! Good luck to Ben too!
While I was watching you yet again, create something out of nothing, so to speak, with these moustaches, I 'saw' HAIR in one or two of them. They would be great on a little girls or boy's card! You are a genius! xxx

You must lay awake at night thinking up all these amazing projects.I love them all.
The back ground paper you used is really beautiful is this something you created as well.

I think some of these mustaches could also become bats for Halloween being created.. You just help us all use our imaginations

Thank you
