Making a Paper Owl Mask

Make your own owl mask with the free SVG file.

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.

Video Tutorial:

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!

This post goes along with a project on CutCardStock’s blog where I share tutorials twice a month as a part of their design team. This post contains support links for the files used in the post.

I used a Cricut Maker to cut the cardstock for this project.
