Movember Crafts - Leslie @ Try to Keep Up


Our very first guest in our Movember Series - my very own sister Leslie from Try to Keep Up!  

Hey there Envirocraftiness readers! 
For those of you who don't know me I'm Leslie, Jill's big sister and I blog over at Try To Keep Up!  Today I'm sharing a couple of cute goodies that anyone can make to bring awareness to men's health issues for Mo-vember.

First off I made this super cute page corner bookmark.  To create the base of the bookmark I followed this tutorial.  


From there you get to play and create your bookmark. 
I decided to mount my book mark so that when you're using it in a book it kinda pops out at you.


Then I made my moustache!  You can see on the left I tried to draw it symmetrically! Instead of stressing out, take the best side you've drawn, fold your paper in half and cut both sides at once.  




Then add some eye balls!  Jill said she couldn't tell this was a little man bookmark, so I spiffied him up a little bit with a beret and eyebrows!


I made two more traditional bookmarks.
Awesome tip, use an eyelet to create the hole for the tassels of your bookmark (top right).



 Here are my finished products!

Thanks so much for inviting me to be a part of Movember craftiness!  For more information about Movember and how you can get involved check out the website.
