Masks From Recycled Cheese Boxes
The variations on these face masks are limited only by your imagination. Kids will have a great time with this craft.
Lids from the small round boxes that hold the cheese triangles.
Dimensional Fabric Paint (optional)
I only used the bottom of the lid as the top has a piece of paper (label) glued to it and that often has wrinkles in it and I wanted a smooth surface.
After basecoating the bottom in the color of your choice, use a penny to draw a circle for the eyes. Then I looked through my various stencils and used bits and pieces of those to create the face. The finishing touch was the use of dimensional fabric paint to accent the mask.
