First of all, make a sketch, deciding on the shape of the mask, and bearing in mind that for the nose you'll need to make a few flaps in order to make it three dimensional (as indicated in the photo).
Then cut along the edge of the mask and the inside of the eyes. You can cut the edges with pinking shears to create a more festive and funky mask.
Next, glue the nose flaps that you previously folded to make it three-dimensional.
To finish the mask, paint it however you like with tempera paints. Use lots of colours to make it more eye-catching! Decorate it with glitter to get a dazzling result.
