As promised: you can now download a free template version of my Strange Bird paper mask. There’s a PDF template here or you can find a jpeg version of the mask here. The color print of the mask/poster is on ETSY, now, if you’d like one of those. There’s also a printable PDF version of the Knumb Skull mask here.
Here are the directions for making your own Strange Bird mask:
Print the mask out on card stock at 100% (or print on regular printer paper and glue to heavier paper for a sturdier mask) and color it as you’d like. You can add yarn, glitter, paper fringe, decorative feathers or other elements, too. Once you’re happy with your mask, cut out the mask and the eye holes. Punch holes on each side for ribbon to hold mask in place. Cut a length of elastic cording or ribbons to fit around your head, leaving at least 6 inches extra. Thread the cording through each hole, and tie off on each side. Now you’re ready to wear your new mask. Enjoy!
