Another Quick & Easy Classroom Valentine!

Your child can craft up this batch of Valentine ‘staches in about an hour, all you need is a bag of lollipops, 2 sheets of black cardstock, a pen that will show up on dark paper and a 1/8″ hole punch. To make it super simple I cut the mustaches with my electronic die cutter using the SVG files in my Photo Props Template set. I could get 9 mustaches from one sheet of 8.5″x11″ cardstock. There is a printable sheet of all of the mustaches in this kit as well so you can print it on regular paper, tape it to black cardstock and hand cut them as well.  Easy Peasy!

My daughter wrote to and from on the back of the mustache cutouts then she used an 1/8″ hole punch to punch a hole in the middle and pushed the lollipop stick through. It held the pops in place really well but just to make sure that no “stache” and pop were separated I place a drop of hot glue on the stick.

  1. Can you show us what an electronic die cutter looks like and how it works. Thank you. Chris



    1. Hi Cris, there are many electronic die cutters on the market. A electronic die cutter uses a blade controlled by a computer to cut out designs rather than a steel die. Example of electronic die cutters are: Silhouette, Eclips, Craft Robo, Zing, Cricut, Slice, Black cat etc. Some cutters take cartridges only, some need to be hooked to a computer and some will do both such as the Sizzix Eclipse. Die cutters that will cut SVG files hook to your computer just like a printer and they cut rather than print. The Silhouette and Eclips are probably the most popular consumer cutters that will use SVG files.


  2. Hi! I found your craft site last fall when I was looking for a substitute for Martha Stewart’s clay. I am happy to say I made a couple of batches and they worked great! I subscribed to your site and I’m so glad I did! Another success story is when you posted about what to do with the Stazon ink pads. I have had the same trouble with mine that you described. Today was the first chance I’ve had to try your solution. Hooray! It worked! So, thank you, thank you, thank you! (oh, I also went out and bought the Inkyadoo circular stamping set! Used a JoAnn’s coupon and got it for 1/2 price. I love it!) Thank you for sharing with us!
