Mario Gift Bag
I made this Mario gift bag for a special little boy for his 4th birthday. He is obsessed with Mario at the moment. I found the inspiration for my gift bag through a link on Pinterest. (How did we ever survive without Pinterest?!) Here is the original blog link.
I cut the various shapes on my Silhouette, but they were simple shapes that could have mostly been done with punches and/or freehand. I used this pattern for the mustache. I used a double layer of pop dots on the nose to give it dimension and also because I wanted to make the mustache wiggle using a homemade spring (faux Action Wobble).
Just for fun I also made a bunch of extra mustaches in three different sizes. I applied double-sided tape to the back of each and had all the guests wear them (including the wee little ones) for a group shot.
A special thanks to these two bloggers for helping me put a smile on a sweet little boy's face!
