[Make Your Mark DIY] Masquerade Mask from 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. Well, they don’t know it’s me until I laugh….that’s always a dead giveaway.  I love the simplicity and elegance of this mask and the fact that it can be made from things you probably already have in your craft stash.
Book pages
4 feet of ribbon of your choice
Hole punch
1 yard of trim
Hot glue and glue gun
X-Acto knife
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Mod Podge Gloss

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

2.  Using Elmer’s glue that’s been watered down a little bit, glue pieces of book 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.

  2. Sigh… it’s just my luck that you release a larger 2nd edition a couple of weeks after I finally treat myself to the original…
