14 Days of Love Party ♥ Lil' {Mustached} Men Valentines Holder


So I hope this nice little Sunday is starting out cozy and full of love for you!!
If you're new here, hello!  I have lots to tell you about, so sit back and visit with us{smile}.

I am excited to be next up in the 14 Days of Love Series hosted by Ashley at Cherished Bliss!
It's surreal and fun for me to be among these fine blogging women!

Today I am coming at you with something I know a little bit about,
making the
mushy, gushy, lovey, dovey, full of hearts + flowers holiday,
into something 
cool + fun for the little guys!!
Those of you who have stuck with me awhile know
that's what I love to do right?!

Lil' {Mustached} Men Valentine Holders

Oooh they make me happy!
They would make a great classroom project too!!

{Tutorial}
What I like about this project is that the little ones can help
and there is no right or wrong answer, embellish away!!
supplies:
quart {tall} or pint {short} milk containers
kraft paper
black fine tip sharpie
knife
tape
glue
scissors
embellishments


1. Cut bottom of carton open on three sides.  Wash and dry thoroughly.
2. Tape shut.  {When ready to take out the valentines just cut through the tape and open!}
3 - 4.Wrap sides of carton {not top or bottom} in kraft paper around and secure.
5. Make a little tent to fit the width of the carton top and tape or glue on.
6. Attach mustache to the milk carton {the definition of a true milk mustache!},
we used these from Michaels,
but you could definitely
make your own too out of cardstock or felt.
7. Draw on a cute little face with the black fine-tipped Sharpie.
8. Add a little bowtie or whatever your little heart desires!
9. Cut a slit in the back for Valentines.
10. Watch all the Valentines Love come your way!!!

The smaller container could be filled with small candies such as chocolate coins. 

We made these valentines for Ethan's class
with the same mustaches from Michaels.
Our school does not allow candy, and we're a little over bringing erasers and pencils.
I can just picture the fun they'll have with these!

I {mustache} you to be mine, Valentine.  

These mustached men love dropping in on a party.
Add some milk, cookies, and a few more mustache accents

{these I drew on our chalkboard backdrop from the little boys' second birthday}
for an instant...

Little {Mustached} Men Valentine's Party!!
