Who hasn’t dreamed of attending a Masquerade Ball! My daughter loves to play dress up and I have to admit I do too. That’s how I dreamed up these fun, fanciful and easy to create masks, using SVGcuts.com files and a few other items. Make them exactly as I have here with the full directions and files used or use these as a guide to come up with some new ones. Have a ball!

Design Tips

Fleurette - SVGCuts Design Team Artist

  1. Double-sided or solid core card stock will give a move finished look.
  2. When tying ribbon pieces to the dowel rod put a drop of hot glue on the top of the rod, then attach the center of the ribbon before tying your knot. This just makes it easier
  3. Inking and embossing gives great dimension and texture
  4. Sealing with a gloss sealer will make your mask look as though they were made out of leather.

I can imagine having a whimsical masquerade tea party with these fun and fanciful masks. They would also make great gifts or wall decorations. Have a “ball” and create!
