I'd love to chat, but I really moustache!

Hi everyone.... here's another of my Pinterest projects.
'Moustache Mugs'

I didn't think I could draw the moustaches freehand, so I searched for some on google (there are lots out there) and then printed them onto card. 
I cut them out with my craft knife, to make a stencil, and taped them to the mug.
You can use a Sharpie pen to draw the moustache, but I found a porcelain pen for a couple of quid at Hobbycraft, that did the job perfectly.
Once the moustaches were all drawn, I 'baked' the mugs in the oven 180C, for about half an hour, and then turned the oven off and left them in there to cool.
They are supposed to be dishwasher safe after that.

I packaged them up in a plain brown box, covering the lid with these pretty reindeer napkins.

Tip: I put the moustache design on one side of the mug only - so remember to do left and right handed mugs, so the design is seen when drinking!!! Does that make sense to you?? 
I put 2 left and 2 right, in each box  :-)
