RECYCLED MASQUERADE MASK WITH FEATHERS
This project is from my new book PULP FICTION: PERFECT PAPER PROJECTS

I love masks. There is nothing more fun than showing up at a costume party and hanging out with people who don’t know it’s you. At least until I laugh, that’s always the dead give away. I love the simplicity and elegance of this mask and the fact that I could make it from things I had hanging around my craft house.

    Cut out the mask pattern in cardboard and slightly bend in a curve. Try it on your face for size and comfort.

    Using Elmer’s glue that’s been watered down a little bit, glue the pages to the front and back of the mask. Since the mask will be a tiny bit wet from the glue now is the time to decide exactly what shape you want it to have. It's easy to bend into shape at this time.

    For the each feather you will take one book page and fold it in half.

    Insert a 8” piece of wire in between the pages and seal it in between and let dry.
