Become the King of the Jungle with this cute cardboard Lion Mask!
We've made ours using reclaimed cardboard and a combination of Makedo Re-clips and the clever little Makedo Scrus available from mymakedo.com.
For those who haven't seen them before, the Makedo Scru is a cardboard screw that can be used to join a few pieces of card together, without the need for a fastener or connector on the back. It also has a slot on the top that makes it really easy to attach decorative features to your creation. The Makedo Scru is the hero of the Makedo Box Props range.

So now let's head out onto the African Savannah and make a Lion Mask, just in time for Halloween.

Step 1:

Gather your materials, Makedo parts and print out the included Lion Mask template.
Carefully cut out all template pieces from stiff cardboard using a sharp blade. Use the point end of the Makedo Safe-saw to punch holes and score lines as marked.

Take care when punching holes for the nose. Make sure that the holes you make are not too big - they should be just large
enough for the Makedo Re-clip to slide through. This part needs to fit tightly so that the nose can be attached securely.
