Valentines Idea!

I'm going to share what I did for my kids this year for Valentines.  Hold onto your DOESN'T involve candy! *gasp*

    I found an app called Mustache Me.

It's free, and you can find it in the App Store.  All you do is take a pic, and then you can add any of hundreds of mustaches, hats, glasses or props to your pics.  It also allows you to play with the colors--I did mine in black & white, to get that "hipster Instagram" look.  Lastly, you can email, tweet, Facebook, etc your creation to print them out.  That was step one.

     Step two involved Pinterest!  I found this cute Pre made care template that I decided to use.

 I just printed it on card stock, cut out the middles, and taped my kiddos pics in them.  They turned out soooo cute!  It was super easy & the kids loved them!  If you're looking for a gift that's not sugar-fueled, try a mustache.  Cause really......who doesn't love a nice stache?!
Mr. Whoopsie wants to be your valentine......
