My Stache!

Sunday was a great day!  I spent the day with my family celebrating my nephew's birthday - he is now 10 years old!!!!  Boy, he has grown up fast!  I made him a fun mustache card and mini box for his birthday.  The 'stache' box holds all the money he got for his birthday - get it "my stache!"  :)

To create the card, I used Lori Whitlock's Mustache SVG Set.  I left the mustaches in the same order they were in the SVG file making it so easy to create the card!  I resized the SVG file to fit a 4.5x5.5 card, cut it out on white card stock, and then pasted strips of patterned paper behind some of the mustaches.  You may be asking, what collection is the adorable paper from?  Well, it is the Swagger Collection by Fancy Pants.  Absolutely love this collection and all of the 'staches' in it - I definitely pulled inspiration from it!

To create the mini box, I used Lori's Mustache SVG set again as well as Lori's Ghost Window Box.  In SCAL, I removed the ghost from the top of the box and added 3 mustaches to create a fun die-cut pattern on the top of the box!  Once I assembled the box, I added some white card stock to the back of the top of the box to make the mustaches pop.  To finish off the box, I added a button from the Swagger Collection with the perfect sentiment on it and added two strips of paper underneath the button to make it look like a ribbon.

My nephew definitely loved these (my sister may have loved even more)!!! 

I hope you'll have a great week!
