Cut out mustaches using die cutting machine (like a Cricut machine) or by tracing and cutting by hand.
Place card stock on foam and trace with a ballpoint pen. The pen will leave an indentation in the foam that’s easy to see.
Cut out mustache using heavy duty scissors.
Cut out the curl of the mustache using a craft knife.
Use a craft knife to clean up the edges.
Paint bamboo skewers with black craft of acrylic paint. You may need to add multiple coats if your paint is thin. I used two coats of thick acrylic paint.
Place scrapbook paper face down on scrap paper.
Spray with an even layer of spray adhesive.
Carefully stick paper to the foam.
You can add a glossy coating to the mustache if you wish. You can also use Mod Podge if you don’t have gloss gel medium.
While adding gloss, take care to even out streaks and brush marks.
Set out to dry.
You can avoid using messy glues by sticking the sharp end of the skewer into the foam.
Decide which side of the mustache you’d like the stick to go into. Put the skewer into the foam and twist back and forth until it’s firmly in place.
