Hi,
In this instructable i am going to show you how to make a simple wicked witch mask using easy to find materials.

all the shapes are fairly simple and can be drawn out by hand but i will also include a template image should you wish to print them straight onto the card instead.

The basic mask template is one i will be using in future instructables so if you don't have a printer you may want to draw out two and keep one as a template for future mask making.

Step 1: Tools and materials

Tools.
Scissors.
Stapler and staples.
Craft knife
Cutting mat (or alternatively use the back of an old magazine)

Materials.
2 x A4 sheets of green card.
1 x A4 sheet of black card (or paper)
double sided tape (for masks i prefer the spongier foam tape to give it a more 3D look but any tape will do)
String (or better yet elasticated cord)

Step 2: The basic mask

Once you have your mask template on the card either via print out or drawing it on cut it out, cutting the 3 lines at the top and bottom (6 in total)

Next using your craft knife cut out the eyes, mouth and around the nose flap.

This next bit is a bit fiddly. over lap the edges at the cut at the top and staple them together, repeat this for all the cuts. NOTE: you may want to ensure that the staples go from the inside of the mask out as they will be less likely to snag on hair.

Step 3: Creature features

Once you have the base of the mask assembled its time to cut out the features.

going from top to bottom we have:
Cheeks
Lip and brow
Nose (left)
Chin (right)
