How to Create a Masculine Treat Project
Thursday, November 10th, 2016
Many of you ask me all the time to create inspiration for a masculine fun project. What better month than November to do this, it’s Movember. Movember is the month you see men growing out their facial hair to bring awareness to men’s health. Maybe one of these day’s I will grow my facial hair out for the Movember cause, we’ll have to see. How about this time I will promote Movember through my craft.
I’m going to show you an easy, fun Masculine Treat Project.
Let’s get started!
Use a scrap piece of white or whip cream cardstock to stamp your glasses image. The glasses stamp I’m using is from the Mr. Classy stamp set, also from Fun Stamper Journey. Once you die cut the glasses, cut it out with your scissors or detailed pro sheers. Who doesn’t love a little fussy cutting?
Next, grab your two circles, we’re going to stamp the Mr. Classy Mustache stamp with a clear pigment ink on the larger circle. Yes, it is tough to see, but once we add the white embossing powder, it’s like magic. Use your heat tool to set the embossing powder on the cardstock. You will see it transform and change after a few seconds.
Tip: When using the heat tool, start at one end and work your way around the image. Once you’re done, let it sit and cool off for a second.
The results are this beautiful emboss look.
Now let’s put our bow together. Grab one of the bows you die cut and create a simple curl with your crease tool on each one of the loops. The other bow will act as the banner we will attach the other bow to. After using your crease tool, bend the cardstock and adhere the edges to the center where the ends meet. Now you’ve created a beautiful bow. Glue dots are my adhesive of choice for this project; it makes it super easy to maneuver once attached. If you want to use your tape roller or white liner, it’s ok too. Take a glue dot and add it to the center of the bow, and apply the banner.
To finalize the bow, create a belly band around the bow and banner.
Now we want to take two foam squares and apply them to the back of the circle embossed Mr. Classy. Put the foam squares on each side of the circle. Take some craft glue and apply it in the center of the circle in-between both foam squares, and then apply the small stick to the craft glue (you can buy these treat sticks at any grocery store). Remove the plastic backing from the foam squares, and place the small circle on the foam squares. What I love about the foam squares is that it adds dimension to the project and covers up the stick.
Finally, you’re going to do the same thing by applying the stick to the back of the glasses you fussy cut, and place both Mr. Classy and the glasses into a candy filled Treat Cup.
I hope you enjoyed this project. I want to see your Masculine Movember projects. Share this on social media and tag me Facebook.
