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

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. :)

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.

Congrats!

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

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...

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.
