Totally recycled masquerade mask that will make you the bell of the ball for sure!

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.

Instructions

  1. Step 1 1

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

  2. Step 2 2

    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.

  3. Step 3 3

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

    Spread a layer of Elmer’s glue on one half.
    Insert a 8” piece of wire in between the pages and seal it in between and let dry.

  4. Step 4 4

    When fully dry, cut out your feather shape and carefully cut the feather as shown

  5. Step 5 5

    When your mask is dry, cut out the eyes with your X-acto knife.

  6. Step 6 6

    Hot glue your trim around the mask and the eyes.




  7. Step 7 7

    Position the feathers on the center of the mask and hot glue in place.

  8. Step 8 8

    Hot glue on the rhinestones in the center to cover the wire at the end of the feathers and a the sides of the eyes. Be creative, you could use tons of rhinestones here!

  9. Step 9 9

    Punch a hole in the side of your mask and thread 18" of ribbon through each side so that you can tie it on your beautiful head and you're done!

  10. Step 10 10

    A picture of the actual mask on the cover of my new book. Enjoy!
