Mustache themes are so much fun and creating a gift bag is so easy with the MUSTACHE HANDLE BAG. When I think of mustaches, for some reason, barber shop quartets always pop in to my head. I thought I would add a little harmony to my bag by making it look like a barber shop quartet costume.
- BLACK, WHITE, RED CARD STOCK
- ELECTRONIC CUTTER (OR SCISSORS)
Cut out the Mustache Gift Bag with either an electronic cutter or print out a template and cut it out manually from black card stock. Make sure to save the mustaches from inside the handles of the bag.
Cut a piece of white card stock 2 inches by 5 1/8 inches. Cut a strip of red card stock 1/2 inch by 10 inches. Cut the red strip into 2 inch pieces. Attach the strips to the white piece as shown. Do not attach it to the bag yet.
Cut or punch two 1 3/8 inch, black squares. Cut both of them in half to form four triangles. Trim 1/4 inch off two of the triangles as shown. Assemble the triangles as shown attaching them together in the center. The smaller of the triangles will be closest to the center. Adhere the triangles to the red and white striped piece.
Using a craft knife or scissors trim along the straight edge of the triangles.
Attach the striped piece to the front of the box lining up the bottom edge of the red and white piece with the bottom edge of the box. Flip the triangle piece over and replace it in the same place that it was originally.
For the bow tie, cut a 3/4 inch square, cut it in half and then flip it so the points touch. Punch or cut a half inch circle and attach to the triangles in the center. Attach the bow tie to the bag along the white edge.
Assemble the bag.
To make the straws, cut a small strip about 1/4 inch by 1 inch. Place some double sided tape on the back of the mustache and on the back of the strip.
Wrap the strip around the straw and attach to the mustache.
I love this fun gift bag!
Thanks so much for hanging with the chicks!
