This mask consists of a digital downloadable with templates to print on cardboard, then cut, fold and glue, in addition to personalizing it by decorating it according to your own style and taste.
YOU WILL GET 2 DIFFERENT TEMPLATES with this product, an illustrated one with the geometric Calaca design inspired by the day of the dead Mexican tradition, and a plain one perfect for decorating or using it as a skull.
The instructions contain detailed and step-by-step information to achieve excellent results. You will need a printer and cardstock to build the design. If you do not have access to letter / A4 size cardboard, you can print it on bond paper and then paste it on the desired cardboard or re-use cardboard boxes.
To complete the design, you must have the following materials:
- Access to a printer.
- 6 sheets of cardstock to print the templates, between 150 and 250gsm (conventional sheets are 75gsm) in letter / A4 size. If your printer doesn't allow printing on cardstock, print it on office paper and paste it on a cardboard preference (can be in a re-use carton)
- Scissors or cutter-type blade and ruler.
- To fold the pieces, we recommend a blunt object that allows us to mark the cardboard and facilitate the folding, as it is a pen without ink. We use a dull knife or bone folder.
- Glue or adhesive for joining tabs or tabs and assembling the parts. You can use white school rubber or quick-drying non-toxic rubber for construction.
This design creates a unique family activity: build a paper wearable with the little ones while sharing time together. This is our reason for being and motivates every design idea.
Experiment with materials and finishes to give a personal style to the design, and please, share your creation with us! Enjoy making and sharing time together.
