That's An Eggcellent Mustache!

It has been a busy week with lots of "maintenance"  activities.  Yesterday I finally went and got my hair  cut and returned to its original color, no more gray highlights for me!   While i was out I ran into a beautiful scrapbook store called Paper Muse.  It is very elegant and definitely has a vintage vibe.  While there I saw this little package of paper mustaches, hats, and monocles and she had decorated an egg with them.   It totally made me smile so I had to buy them.  I failed to take a picture of her egg so I had to recreate it at home.

Isn't he great?  I cannot remember what she had him sitting on but I decided to add the collar and bow tie.   Okay, I think you know where this is headed.  I realized that I could make all the pieces with my punches and stamps.  Do you want to see what I came up with?  Here goes!

Egg with heart punch

Mustache made with the  Full Heart punch.

Once I started punching I started seeing mustaches everywhere!  Okay, that sounds a little scary.   Here are some quick pictures to show you how I made the hat,  collar, bow tie and mustaches.  

Egg hat
Word Window punch and 1 1/4" circle punch

Egg collar
1" ( width) strip of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut a 3/8" slit and fold back at an angle.  The length of the strip depends on the size of your egg.

Egg bowtie
Smallest heart from the Heart to Heart punch and 1/4" square (this is retired but simple to cut out)

Many moustaches
Many Mustaches A la Carte stamp

Bird punch moustache
2 wings from the Bird Builder punch.

This post is getting really long and I just realized i did not take any pictures of the monocle or the other mustaches.   If you would like me to show those leave me a comment or send me an email and I will post them.

You still have time to make these so get your punches out!    They are going to look so eggcellent on your Easter table!
