Britten here today and I want to know:
Do you love or hate the mustache trend??
Not everyone is a fan of the black hairy ‘stache that seems to be popping up just about everywhere lately. Personally I love it but maybe that’s because all of the important men in my life have always had facial hair: my grandfather had a mustache, my dad had a full beard, and my husband sports a goatee. So maybe that’s why I’m enjoying this trend so much!
I really fell in love with the SEI Shadow Box that comes in this Manly Mustache Kit from Megan Elizabeth, so I wanted to share what I did with it using just some of the papers and embellishments in the kit.
This is the picture that I wanted to use in the box. I wasn’t crazy about the colors, so I changed it to black and white. My home printer includes a mini-copier so I put the picture on the copier, loaded a piece of photo paper, and selected the black and white option. In just a few minutes I had my black and white picture…no computer necessary!
I wanted to cover the outside of the box with the dark wood grain paper in the kit, so I traced around the frame, cut it out then adhered it to the front.
I used the striped and plaid papers in the kit to form the background of the layout. I covered the seam with the printed tape measure ribbon, then used some brads and Megan Elizabeth Ink Edgerz to brighten up the wooden bicycle embellishment. Hint: I removed the “legs” from the back of the brads and used a strong glue to attach just the brad tops to the wheels.
I filled in the rest of the box with some more of the papers and journaling cards included in the kit. Cut a title with my Cricut and my box was complete in no time at all!
Here’s a picture of my completed box that will go in my husband’s office:
I still had tons of supplies left over so I made a few cards that will come in handy for future manly birthdays and Father’s Day. I hope you enjoy this kit as much as I did!
Now….Go Scrap Something!
