The ENTIRE kit in all its glory!



This is my first posting in the papercraft board, but I created this unique mustache disguise kit that's become the envy of all my friends and coworkers.

I know we all have times where we're bombarded with work that we don't want to do, or people we don't want to see, so I created a Mustache Disguise Kit to help me cleverly escape from these unpleasant work situations.

The kit is made from post it notes, scissors and a sharpie marker.



I drew the 'staches onto the sticky part of the post it notes, colored it in with a black sharpie marker (though you could use other colors if you had red hair or blonde hair), cut it out and applied it to my upper lip.



Like I said, I have a total of about 10 different mustaches, though I left them at work accidentally.  I'll try to get a photo of all of the 'staches together, but I have made quite a variety!

That IS really great timing!! Now you'll be all set for Mustache Day at work!  I'm planning on posting a more complete tutorial later, but I have to go into work and extract the rest of my kit first.

Aw, you really rock a 'stache! Those are so cute, and must be fun to make. I'm going to make one real quick for my daughter to wear to school this morning. She'll LOVE it!  Smiley

Is it wrong that I want to make and wear these to Sam's Club so I can circle around the same delicious food sample cart multiple times without them detecting me?  Probably. Cheesy  I'm still going to do it, though!

More mustaches = more tiny sausages.

I am wondering, though, if anyone had adhesive advice?  The mustaches are fantastic, but sometimes the sticky part of the post it note stops working mid-escape.  Would any of you have advice as to what may be better to use?

Oh, that's a good question!  I wouldn't recommend hot glue, but that's just me. Cheesy

Wow--you made those from post-it notes?  who knew they could be so fun!!

I would take scotch tape and fold it in half--but only if you don't have real hairs above your lips because it could hurt if you had to take it off... Cheesy
