Starting materials


Method
Cut two rectangles out of contact paper (sticky back plastic) just bigger than the mask you want to make.
Draw a mask shape on the paper side of one piece. You can use a pair of kids sunglasses to help get the right size and shape.

Cut out the mask shape
Peel the paper backing off the contact paper and stick collage items to the sticky side.

It doesn't matter if you go over the edge with the collage items as it will be trimmed later


Stick the other rectangle of contact paper on top, sticky side to sticky side.

Fold over each half of the mask and cut half an eye hole on each fold. Open up to get your finished mask shape.
