The Rules of the Game are quite simple – Pin the Mustache on the Baby!
With inspiration from a variety of mustaches (and Bridget Heos' 'Mustache Baby' hardcover book), Sister- K transformed this classic game to fit a Baby Shower for a little boy.
Guests were able to choose their favorite mustache (while writing their name on it), and take a turn while being blindfolded – Closest to the pin wins!
The Cartoon Baby was drawn onto a piece of white poster board, whereas the Mustaches were cut out of blue scrapbook paper. We used UGlu to hang the poster board to the outside of the house and for the back of the mustaches. No damage to the siding when you use UGlu!
Once finished, each guest was able to write a special message to the baby inside the book 'Mustache Baby'. The book was imprinted with this Rubber Stamp.

Why not perk up a party with a Dr. Seuss-inspired Photo Booth (along with coordinating props)?
PDFs can be printed at home, although, the sisters³ decided to use FedEx Kinko's for a small price.
Props were easily attached to 12 inch wooden dowels (found at any Craft Supply Store). With the props printed on card stock, they adhered easily to each dowel (using “E6000“, the preferred glue of sisters³).
Printable PDF's of Photo Booth Props can be found below:
Big Red Bow Tie
Cat In The Hat
Dr. Seuss Glasses
Thing 1 & Thing 2 Hair
“Oh What Fun” Word Bubble
Thing 1 Sign
Thing 2 Sign
The backdrop was created using Dr. Seuss & plain Red and Blue Scrapbooking Paper, and chains were hung on a Portable Photography Backdrop Stand (available through Amazon.com: Portable Photography Backdrop Stand). Four pieces of paper were used for each chain – first cut down the middle and then cut with an approx. 3 inch width. Used staples to make chains.
