Step 1: Folding The White Sheet
Let’s start this crafty mask by taking a white sheet, folding it in half, and forming a crease.
Step 2: Outlining Cat Mask Shape
Make a hand gesture of stretching out the pinky finger and the thumb and put it over the folded side of the paper. Freely draw a cat-shaped mask outline using a pencil as shown in the image.
Step 3: Cutting The Outline
Once you’re satisfied with the shape, carefully cut along the outline using scissors.
Step 4: Cutting Out Eye Shape
Using a pink sheet of paper, cut out an eye shape by folding the paper to make it symmetrical.
Step 5: Outlining The Eye Shape
Open up the folded eye shape and put it over your mask, using a pencil trace the outline of the eye shape on the mask.
Step 6: Cutting Out The Eyes
Using scissors, cut out the eye outline. From the other side too cut out the eye outline of the mask.
Step 7: Decorating The Mask
Unfold the mask and using a black marker add more prominent eye detailing around the cut parts as shown in the image.
Step 8: Making Ears
Step 9: Preparing The Whiskers
Now, for the whiskers part take a white sheet and cut thin strips and paste them over the mask as shown. Also, cut out a rounded triangle from pink paper and paste it in the middle of the whiskers.
Step 10: Shaping The Mask
Twist the open edges in front of the mask in a way that they overlap each other. Refer to the image for a better understanding. Turn the folded edges to the back and insert one into another, giving your mask a subtle and more realistic look.
