Step 1: (De)-Construct the Box
Cut one side out of the box to make a hollow shell, keeping the back face flat.
Step 2: Paint Both Sides of the Box Black.
Step 3: Trace the Mask and Cut Out a Hole in the Rear Face of the Box.
Step 4: Hot Glue (or Tape) the Mask to the Hole, and Assemble the Box.
Make sure the mask is facing out.
Step 5: Using the Face Cutout, Make a Top for the Mask, and Glue It On.
This prevents light from reaching the inside of the mask from the top.
Step 6: Check for Light Leaks.
Check the box from the inside, look for light leaks around the edges, and cover them with black or opaque tape.
Step 7: Completed Box.
Place with a light source above and behind the box. Watch the face watching you as you move about!
Especially effective when put in a window so it can be viewed from outside.
