Mustache on a stick

I thought this would be a cute idea as a stocking stuffer for my nephew and nieces (and maybe my sister who has a funny sense of humor) for Christmas!

What You'll Need:
A picture of a mustache
Black card stock and various colors and patterns of scrapbook paper
Scissors
Hot glue and glue gun
Elmers glue or Mod Podge
Bamboo Skewer

Find a picture of a mustache, or just free hand it. I Googled "cartoon mustache" and "clip art mustache" and found one I liked. Maybe choose a few different ones for variety!
Print off your mustache in the proper size, and cut it out for your stencil. 
Cut two pieces of scrapbook paper, large enough to fit the stencil. I did one side black, the other side was a cute pattern.
Trace your mustache onto your scrapbook paper. Holding the two pieces together, cut them out.
Spread your Mod Podge or glue on all but one corner of your mustache, and glue the two pieces together.
Add a dab of hot glue between your layers, and stick the end of your skewer in it, then squeeze it together to seal it. 
My favorite is the pin striped mustache!
