MAKE YOUR MASK IN A MINUTE

MAKE YOUR MASK IN A MINUTE

With masks now mandatory just about everywhere again as we head to end of 2021, we remember a campaign from last year that we ran promoting a simple idea showing how to make one in just a minute. The genius is in the greaseproof!

YOU WILL NEED…

Scissors
Paper napkin
Old T-Shirt
Greaseproof paper
Card
Ruler

STEP 1

Take a t-shirt and cut a wide 1.5 cm strip along the bottom.

STEP 2

Cut strip into 2x30cm lengths & knot at ends. These are your earpieces.

Cut card to 17cm x 12cm and use this as a template to cut greaseproof paper to the same size.

STEP 3

Take a paper napkin or cut an old piece of material to 33cm x 33cm.

Place card in centre of material and fold top and bottom to make creases at the top and bottom to form the mask, then remove the card and replace with a rectangle of greaseproof paper (17cm x 12cm.) Refold around the greaseproof paper.

STEP 4

Put your ‘ear pieces’ on either side of your now rectangle napkin knot side in and fold the ends into the middle tuck under.

Loop over either ear and position over nose and mouth – hey presto – your ‘mask in a minute’.

Thank you Carol for the genius idea, (greaseproof who knew?), also thanks to Hassan Mead and Max Callan who filmed and put together this fantastic video of Carol demonstrating how easy it is to make!
