Jul 17, 2019

Halloween is almost upon us and the wonderful Kate Lilley from the blog minieco has been busy working on this amazing owl mask tutorial, perfect for summer crafting.

 

 

So we’ll let Kate tell you how it’s done…

You will need to download the templates before you begin: paperchase-owl-mask & paperchase-owl-feathers

Materials & tools needed:

Materials

Blue Card

Paper – mixed colours

Silver Ribbon

Tools

Glue stick

Scissors

Ruler

Sharp point for scoring (compass/needle)

Hole punch

Step 1

Print out the mask onto a piece of A4 Steel Blue card. Set your printing preferences to ‘photo’ and ‘grayscale’. Cut along the outside edge of the mask and nose and carefully cut out the eye holes.

 

Step 2

Punch out a hole on either side to thread your ribbon through.

 

 

Step 3

Place the beak on a work surface and score along the dotted lines using a ruler and pointy object (such as compass or needle). Fold along each of these lines and glue the beak into place.

 

Step 4

Print out the feathers onto sheets of different coloured paper. Set your printing preferences to ‘photo’ and ‘grayscale’. Cut out the big feathers.

 

Step 5

Place the large feathers on a work surface and score along the mid-line using a ruler and pointy object (such as compass or needle). Fold in half.

 

Step 6

Cut out the small feathers.

 

Step 7

Thread the silver ribbon through the holes and glue the small feathers on. Begin with the bottom feathers, overlapping as you go. When all the small feathers are glued into place trim any pieces that are sticking out over the edge of the mask.

 

Step 8

Glue the large feathers into place.

 

Here is the finished mask! Play around with different colours. We love the colour combo on this one…
