Making a Paper Owl Mask

with CutCardStock

owl mask

What a fun time of the year to create. As the summer weather turns cooler the colors change to an autumn palette. This DIY mask can be worn for Halloween or made as a decorative piece to hang. If you change the color or eliminate some of the pieces you can totally change the look and feel of the mask. Create in all white and you’d have a beautiful winter owl.

The Modern Writers gel pen set from Ooly sells on Amazon for $17.99. And on the Ooly website, the fine line writers are $9.99. These seem to be similar pen sets but are packaged differently. The Ooly pens are lovely but the Jot brand writes well too. The Dollar Tree pens only have four pens so you are losing some of the beautiful colors. (the red and green) So how does the Dollar Tree version write? You can see them in the video below:

basis papers

I chose the colors from the Basis line, weighted at 80# cover, and come in a variety of different colors.

Cricut Maker

Cutting this file on a Cricut Maker, I set it to cut 100# cardstock.

cut parts

All the pieces are cut and ready to assemble. I set the width of the file to 7.5″ to fit comfortably on the 8.5 x 11″ pieces.

inks and mask

I wanted to add some detail and depth to the mask so I chose to ink blend the pieces with Distress Oxide. Then I worked the pieces with a ball tool to add some actual dimension.


From this angle, you can see the dimension and a close-up of some of the ink blending. Adding a bit of elastic is all that is needed in order to wear the mask.

A perfect fit!
