1. Print mask pattern directly onto black cardstock, or if preferred print onto white paper, cut it out and then trace it onto black paper. Cut black portion of mask and use a hole punch to make the holes for the ribbon.
2. Print (or trace) orange and blue portions of the eye and toucan beak, then cut them out. Layer the orange and blue pieces of the eye onto the black mask base. Line up a hole punch with the holes you punched in the base mask, and re-punch through the colored layers.
3. Trace, cut then, glue the black decorations onto the beak. Score both the black and orange pieces of the beak before gluing them together. Once black pieces are firmly in place, use glitter paint to outline the beak. Allow to dry thoroughly.
4. Build the dimensional beak by folding on dotted lines and gluing tabs into place. Once dry, attach the beak to the mask base.
5. Using Elmer’s Mega 3D and 3D Paint Pens, add more color and decoration to the toucan mask. Tie ribbons through holes in the sides of the mask to complete.
