How to make your Day of the Dead sugar skull cat mask:
You will need scissors, a glue stick, masking tape and some ribbon. For a longer lasting mask, print your template on to a slightly heavier stock paper.
Carefully cut out the mask, whiskers and eye holes.
Glue the middle panels together with your glue stick and secure on the back with a little masking tape.
Next stick the two side panels together as shown.
Glue the whiskers in place on the reverse of the mask.
Attach a length of ribbon to either side of your mask. You can glue it in place, then stick with masking tape for a really firm hold.
