Introduction: Origami Batman Mask

Picture of Origami Batman Mask

With the fall time and Halloween just around the corner we thought it would be fun to include a simple and easy batman mask for kids and adults to make that can be used with a costume. We discovered the mask on a different website but the instructions were difficult to follow. We thought we could provide better instructions to make the project simpler and less time consuming.
