Mustache Valentine’s Day Card

Valentine’s day is around the corner and I love making cards.  This is the perfect opportunity to be crafty, so I decided to use my pack of shrink plastic.  When I first got the shrink plastic I was thinking that there would only be one or two uses for it, but boy was I wrong.  I love shrink plastic, its so versatile and you can do so much with it.

I made a Valentine that says “I mustache you if you will be my Valentine?”  To compliment the card I made a mustache key chain from shrink plastic.

Optional Decorations:

I used regular printer paper to cut out a template of a mustache.  If you want you could also find an image online.  My mustache was 5 inches long, and it shrank down to 2.5 inches long.

Tape the image onto the shrink plastic, and using small scissors, cut out the mustache.  I say small because it will help cut out the curl of the mustache, large scissors may not be able to cut as finely.

Using a 1/4 inch hole punch, punch a hole on one side of the mustache.

To decorate the mustache, you can use a sharpie.  I used this Fabrico pen, but would not recommend it, because it is runny.

Follow instructions on shrink plastic to shrink. Attach jump ring and key chain loop.

Optionally, if you want to glitter the mustache instead, you can coat the plastic (after it has been shrunk) with Mod Podge.

Sprinkle with glitter.  Wait to dry and repeat on other sides.

Simply print you card with your favorite text editor and attach the mustache to the card with double sided tape.
