How to make a Paper Face Mask at Home
Time needed: 30 minutes.
Step by Step Process to make a Face Mask with Paper:–
- Create the basic mask template
Cut the A4 size paper as per desired shape. Use the acrylic colors to make your favorite pattern. You can even add a few stickers – I added the Avengers Sticker for a better look. Cover the entire cutout with cello tape for strength.
- Make the slits for breathing
These slits/cuts are important as these will facilitate breathing
- Paste tissue paper pieces at the back of the slits for breathing
The tissue paper works as a filter. You can also use any other material which is similar in characteristics like cloth, etc.
- Make the finishing touches to complete the mask
Make small cuts on the top and bottom of the mask cut out. Fold and paste the small cuts inside to create a curved shape for nose and chin. Staple the elastic to both sides of the mask as per your size
