Library Display: No-Shave November


Although it is hard to believe, the year is almost over and November is in full swing! Today I want to share with you a fun library display for No-Shave November- I Mustache You to Read These Books! This project was a great excuse to use my Silhouette Cameo and the PixScan mat, and super easy to make just using good ol’ scissors.

The process was super easy- I just snapped a picture of the mustaches on the mat and loaded it into the software on my computer. I traced the mustaches easily and loaded the mat into my Cameo.

The machine read the registration marks and swiftly cut out each mustache. I made sure to line up each new piece of paper in the same manner and popped the mat back into the machine each time.

I whipped up a vintage sign using the Silhouette software and then came the fun part- finding the best book covers featuring faces. I cut plenty of extras so we could keep the ‘stache shenanigans up all month-long! 

This process would also be perfect for your next party decor and photo props!

Let’s not forget No-Shave November isn’t just for warm faces- it is a unique way to grow cancer awareness.
