Make your own mustache!

We bought these mustaches from a party shop. The pack contained a couple of mustaches made of this black fluffy material. Though it was fun to put on for our Christmas dinner party the fibers from the mustache kept coming off.

I researched about different types of mustaches and I found six that I liked. I’m thinking of making some felt mustaches that we can use for our photo booth. I’ll post my project if I have time to make the mustaches this weekend.

Just print the PDF file using A4 sized paper and cut along the dotted lines  and voila, you have a mustache template. PDF template after the jump: mustache_tutorial_template

I would love to hear about any projects you’ve made using my template. Happy New Year!

Addressing invitations

I love doing calligraphy and I will probably prefer to address my invitations by hand as dictated by formal protocol. Our wedding is going to be a formal event and this will definitely add a special touch to our invites. I’m also considering using cute labels that seem to the trend right now. I’ll have to wait and see how hectic things get when we send out our invitations 3 to 4 months before the wedding.

I’ve been doing some research on how envelopes should be addressed and the following links should be helpful. They cover everything from the use of double vs. single envelopes to how to address invitations to family members, to people with titles and even to same sex couples.
