How to Make Paper Butterfly Mask for Kids
To make this butterfly mask design you need the following supplies.
Here are the step by step instructions for the butterfly face mask:
Download the Butterfly Mask Template and print out.
Cut the butterfly shape and the eye holes out from the printed template. Don’t cut anything else at this point.
Now to make a mask out of paper template you need to trace the entire butterfly shape onto cardstock and cut it out.
Cut the eye holes too. Set aside.
Now cut the decorative shapes out of the template. Trace these shapes onto colored cardstock and then cut the shapes out.
Arrange the shapes onto the butterfly and find a color combination and look that you enjoy.
Glue all of the shapes into place on the butterfly.
Add lines of glue to the shapes and decorate with glitter. Shake off excess glitter.
Allow the glue/glitter to dry completely.
Draw lines across the body of the butterfly. Refer to the photo.
Add glue to the head and coat with glitter. Shake off excess glitter.
Glue the body of the butterfly onto the middle of the butterfly.
Cut very thin strips from black cardstock.
Glue behind the head.
Use a hot glue gun or white glue to add a popsicle stick handle to the mask and make it a true paper masquerade mask.
You can also add ribbon to either side of the mask and tie the mask into place.
Your butterfly mask is finished and ready to be enjoyed.
