Trendy Tuesday – Mustaches

Trendy Tuesday – Silly Mustaches
by Katherine Elliot

I “mustache,” have you seen these images lately? 

 Now, I know it”s not a new trend, just one of those trends not yet going away.  Searching for the origins of  the “mustache on a stick” craze, very popular at party photo booths, hasn”t given me any more insight, but I have to admit these easily can bring a smile to your face.

Mustache cards make great “man cards”.  Even if your husband or dad doesn”t look like Magnum P.I. (that”s showing my age, I know), they”ll probably still enjoy a happy, hairy greeting.

 If you are not familiar with a “mustache on a stick,” then take a look at these… These make fun party pic props.  I can see lots of  fun, silly photos & a joyful scrapbook layout using these, can”t you?

If you”re not planning on donning a fake soup strainer any time soon, then you may just enjoy a few more mustache cards.   A mustache can be added to any existing stamped image you have, like the little fuzzy felt added on the bear below.  He sure looks cute with that extra bit of lip fuzz, doesn”t he?

In Julie”s card above, she used a die for the “stache.  Yep, that”s right.
The images are popular enough The Cats Pajamas company even has mustache dies
(Julie”s card also uses The Cats Pajamas Honey Bear stamp set).

A variety of stamp sets with the mustache theme are relatively easy to find.

 I cannot forget to include a near-local favorite of mine, Riley the Moose.  This year, Kansas based Riley & Co. introduced a  Riley Moose stamp with that stylish, perfectly coifed “stache.

 Now, go throw a party, put on your best mustache on a stick smiles, and say “Cheese!”  You have to admit, “stache sticks will look a lot cuter in the photos than just holding your finger under your nose!  Plus, who doesn”t love another reason to craft?  Enjoy!
