Paper Moustache - How to...



Whatever way you spell it, a moustache/mustache makes a fun card, and you can create a DIY 'tache' quite simply using some black card and two different sized circular punches, one should be slightly smaller than the other.  I used a 2 inch and 1 1/2 inch punch for my 'tache',





1.  Cut or punch a circle of card.
2. With scissors cut away a small strip from the centre of the circle
3. With the smaller circle punch or template cut a semi circle from each piece.
4.  Overlap the two halves and secure in the centre with glue





Pinspiration ...


My resolution for Blush Crafts in 2015 is to post regularly.

The first of these regular posts is a monthly feature I'm calling 'Pinspiration'  where I select a pin from my Pinterest boards, recreate the card or project, share it here on the blog and hopefully inspire you to repin it and have a go at the project yourself.

First up in the series is a set of cute little owl cards I found on the Cosmo Cricket blog, I so love Julie Comstock's work and want to 'copy' everything she makes.  If you haven't visited the blog before it's well worth a look.


Handy little cards to have ready made to send for any occasion
