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.

    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.
