materials

  • Thick card stock

  • Tiffany-blue fabric (cotton or satin)

  • Gold metallic trim (1/2-3/4 inch)

  • Gold braided trim

  • Gold ribbon (Anna used wire ribbon)

  • Gold glitter glue

  • 2 big blue rhinestones (can find in a children's craft section)

steps

  1. Using a tape measure, measure the distance from your left temple to right temple. This will be the width of your mask.

  2. On your thick card-stock paper, draw a line the same length. Draw your mask shape so that it is as wide as this line. Cut out and place over your fabric.

  3. Draw on the fabric around the mask shape leaving a two-inch space so that your fabric will fold over the back. Cut out the fabric piece.

  4. Tightly pull and wrap fabric over the card-stock cutout and hot-glue the folds on the back. Do this slowly so there are no air pockets or wrinkles.

  5. Cut your eyelid shapes and repeat fabric and glue instructions above. The extra edge on the fabric will be glued to the top of the mask.

  6. Hot-glue your rhinestones where you want the eyes to be (widely placed). Hot-glue the eyelid shapes over the blue rhinestones so that the bottom of the rhinestones peek out slightly.

  7. Measure out your metallic velvet trim to fit the width of your eyelids. Cut slits along the edge of the trim for the eyelash effect. Hot-glue to the rims.

  8. Glue your gold braided trim around the edge of the mask.

  9. Use the gold glitter glue to make the eyebrow arches. Let dry thoroughly.

  10. Measure out your ribbon and cut two equal lengths long enough to tie around the back of your head. Hot-glue between trim and fabric or staple to the back along the edge.
