Isn't she beautiful - even with the silly mustache? This is my daughter's Girl Scout troop leader, Jennifer, and she is a fabulous dynamo!
The girls were participating in an International Bazaar with the Girl Scouts and the country they had to do was Italy. So, Jennifer asked if I could make some mustache straws. How convenient that Provo Craft had recently come out with the Cricut digital Mustache and Glasses cartridge. It retails for $4.99 and you use it with the Cricut Craft Room. Check it out below:
My daughter decided she like the top left and bottom right mustaches and after testing out the sizing, I got to cutting.
Here they are (above and below). All we did was punch a hole with a large hole punch and put a straw through it. The straws stayed in the moustaches without any adhesive.
I cut over 100 of them and the girls put them together. Then, at the Bazaar, they sold them for fifty cents each. Almost all were gone at the end of the event. They also sold pizza and chef's hats and sang "On Top of Spaghetti" during their show.
