Handmade Valentines

So what does a boy in grade three hand out on Valentine's Day? Well...mustaches of course!
I'm sorry Miss Gold for any craziness these mustaches may cause! It's hard to tell in the picture, but the mustache is actually made out of felt. Held on by double-sided tape (we put a piece of packing tape down first so that the mustache will peel off easily) these cute little guys are wearable.

Simple. Easy. Inexpensive. We printed off the words and a mustache image onto plain old white paper. Mr. Man cut them out and glued them on to construction paper. We added a felt mustache. And voila!

Now Little Miss is mad about Mad Libs, so will give out these. The idea came from here. (Lots of great ideas at Design Mom).
We changed up the packaging from the original idea. It's simple to do.
A strip of paper. A few cuts here and there. A heart to hold a rolled up Mad Lib. All ready to hand out.
