I know Hallowe’en has been and gone, but I really wanted to share with you my experiences of making a tiger mask for my son. He loved the idea of doing it, and wore it all Hallowe’en long. It’s now in pride of place on his bedroom shelves and looks great as an ornament too. I downloaded this template from Etsy, and to be fair I probably underestimated how many different bits of card need to be fitted together to make it. My advice would be to just take a deep breath, take your time and you’ll get there!
So, here are some pictures from the making of the mask. It took quite some time, but was well worth it!
As I said, there were a lot of pieces of cardboard to cut-out, score and fold! Oh, and you’ll need lots of sellotape too!

Starting the painting!
And the finished result:
