Now we will be exploring how to create masks using anything you can find at home from a copy paper, news paper, magazine paper, etc
Please read about the use of mask in Puerto Rico, Brazil and Mexico.
After reading this information you can choose one or do all the three masks in the pdf files. There is one of the Day of the Dead, one cat mask and one bird mask.
Please color the masks, make designs, add flowers, stars etc anything you can imagine! then you can assemble the mask. Cut the lines in the border and overlap them using glue (you can also staple), When you overlap these sides you will notice that your paper turned into a 3D Mask.
Once you explored how to make these mask you can now design and make your own. Remember you need to make the three cuts on the paper: one on the top front, and two on the sides.
Punch a hole on the sides, add a string and Bravo ! you have a mask.
Bravo means great in Spanish :)
