More African Masks...

I just can't get enough of these masks! The children in my after school art class did a great job with color and symmetry and pattern!

    1. Hi Andrea! I use white poster board for the masks--I get 6 from one 20"x 30" sheet. The eyelids are also poster board and they are half circles. Cut 1/4" slits along the straight edge of the half circle and then slide the eyebrow through a slit in the mask. Fold the little tabs up and secure on the back of the mask with a piece of tape. It's a bit hard to explain...but once you try it it makes more sense. Good luck!
