Somewhere over the past year, my kids have joined the mustache craze. I’m not really sure where this came from, but I think it’s just plain weird. Kids have them on T shirts, cell phone cases, and other accessories. I’ve even seen the occasional teenage male growing a stash. Ew. Seriously, what’s the deal? Did I miss out on some movie or popular song that set this whole thing viral? I don’t get it.  Obviously I’m not a huge fan of the stash but I definately won some cool mom points for these.

Abbie and I got our inspiration from Pinterest. These little valentines were all over the place. We just put our little spin on it. I’ve been working hard to keep the sugar out of my house so a treatless valentine seemed like the way to go. There are always “left-overs” that usually end up in my mouth and my kids certainly didn’t need it.

We used Photoshop, some clear bags from clearbags.com and a few packs of mustaches from Books-a-Million. We had a lot of fun doing this together and I love how they turned out!

So now, I mustache you…… Do you have any more treatless valentines ideas to share? I’ll be taking notes for next year.



  1. Very cute! I almost did those, too, this year, but went with a “love bug” theme instead. I’d say these cards will be the hit of your child’s class party.

  2. Now those are just too doggone cute….

    I’m with you….I’ve been asking what in the world the stash means???? My 6 mo old grandson has one on his Valentine shirt! I like your interpretation…at least it makes some sense!
