Problem is, where do you find a paper bag nowadays?

DIY-Guy (author)Wastntime2015-10-31

Ask a full service grocery store, you may pay $.15 per pound, or $.05 per large bag.
Or, make a bag from paper and glue... maybe could even use a rubber band to hold a printed face up as a mask.
Hope this helps. :)

I think I stared at that for an entire minute to try and figure out what was going on. Great job!

Laral (author)2015-10-30

That's hilarious. It's so simple you could make several different ones and double and triple dip the good houses. LOL!

Love the look!

These bags can get hot after a while - I like to cut a couple of Eye-Sized holes in the top (bottom of the bag) in order for some of the air to escape as it heats, thereby drawing cooler air up from the shoulders area...

Great idea! I could be cool to swap faces and clothes with a friend and go out on the town together. I bet people would mix em up a lot.

What a clever mask!

Once witnessed, it's one of those, 'Why didn't *I* think of this???' ideas.

diannagail (author)2010-10-03

How do you keep it on straight in order to see. What about a cardboard inner frame?

farzadbayan (author)2010-07-03

Easy and useful . I make it now !

HappyHen (author)2010-05-24

That is hysterical!!!! *2 Thumbs Up*!

The_Saccade (author)2009-10-30

Excellent! Very funny.

I will make one of Kirsten O'Brien (from CBBC) and take it out with me, when I go drinking in the city, so that I may put it over the heads of the women I meet.

Because, let's face it, I always end up with the munters...

This is hiliarious, I love it!

Wolfbird (author)2009-10-08

The man's going to love this. He wants to be some famous fraudster (whose name I can't remember) for Halloween this year, and just dressing him up in a suit and tie would not be enough. The paper-bag-on-your-head idea is just killer.

yags (author)2009-10-07

I love it :) Great idea!

msknboy (author)2009-10-07

this looks really cool, gonna throw a Bday party and would like do a 'macolvich' theme.  how big a picture?  8x10?

ravvip0 (author)2009-10-06

hahaha 'cut a mouth hole if you're feeling frisky' nice job, i know when a mask like this would come in handy...

Coliflower (author)2009-10-06

Cool, I was going to be the thing(?) from the Scream painting for halloween this year, this'll help out alot.

falcotheimpaler (author)2009-10-06

Paper bad mask or: How I learned to stop worrying about my appearance and throw a bag over my head. This is great, I was looking for ways to go as myself for halloween.

Doctor What (author)2009-03-19

Hide your shame, with style.

ChrysN (author)2009-03-18

The ribbon is a nice touch.

noahh (author)2009-03-18

Almost as creepy as the balaclava...

dchall8 (author)2009-03-18
