How-To: Craft Paper Masks

How-To: Craft Paper Masks
YouTube player

Our master craftswoman Corinne Leigh put together this video tutorial on making paper masks. She used the work of Phillip Valdez and Flurry & Salk as inspiration and then produced this nifty bird mask. You can, of course, use these same techniques to create any type of lightweight, paper mask you desire. And as you can see, you can get quite elaborate with the design. Perfect for your next costume party, nerd con, or cosplay.

This video was sponsored by Elmer’s products.
