Monday Made It

Oooooh, my favorite time of the week! A big shout out to Tara at 4th Grade Frolics her
marvelous Monday Made It linky!

There is a reason everybody is doing them.....

I couldn't resist making birthday pencil toppers. 

Here is what I needed:
  • bin ($2.50 Target Dollar Aisle)
  • florist foam ($2 Dollar Tree)
  • Pencils ($2 Dollar Tree)
  • Mod Modge
  • tape
  • printed and laminated pencil toppers
  • printed bin label
Total Cost: $6

1. I Mod Podged the bin label to the front of the bin

2. I glued the florist foam into the bottom of the bin

3. I taped the pencil toppers to the pencils (on the back!)

4. Then I stuck the pencils into the foam, like a bouquet


Now I know you are dying with curiosity about the mustache in the frame. It's a singing mustache card. We had given one to my Olivia for her birthday, but she wouldn't give it up to me. I bought my own at Target for a whopping $7. $7 for a card?! Only for a singing mustache would I pay that kind of money. 

I tore the back off the card. Then I put some 'stache scrapping paper in the frame without the glass. A few dabs of glue later and THIS is what my kids will get to play on their birthday (no regular old "happy birthdays" in my room, no sir).

Because I am a happy mustachio I am throwing this out there for free for all my mustachio-ed friends. 

Because, really, who doesn't want to have a Magical Mustache Day?

  2. I tried clicking to download the pencil toppers, but it won't let me ::(

    1. Oh my goodness, what did I do? Well, I've fixed it and how you should be able to to go download it. Sorry about that!!
