Step 1: Grab Your Materials
To make this unique greeting card, what you need are:
- scrapbook paper / cardstock
- clear tape
- hole punch
- X-acto knife
- template of the Masquerade Mask Greeting Cards (you can find this in The Big Ass Book of Crafts 2on page 376)
Step 2: Prep Images
First, if you have a copy of The Big Ass Book of Crafts 2, go to page 376 and make a copy of the mask and envelope templates. Then, print everything out.
Step 3: Trace and Cut
Once you've printed the templates out, trace each image on a piece of scrapbook paper or cardstock. Make sure to carefully cut and score each shape, so that it doesn't cut all the way across or through the fold lines where indicated on the original templates.
Step 4: Tape Mask to Envelope
Fold the mask over, then unfold it, and use a piece of clear tape to tape one end of the mask to the bottom of the envelope.
Step 5: Final Touches
For the final touches, punch a hole on both top corners of the mask, and thread two pieces of ribbon through each one.
Step 6: Done!
Once it's complete, just write a message in the envelope, fold over the masks, seal in place, and it's ready to send!
