The new year is rapidly approaching. Are you ringing it in with a rockin’ party at your house this year? You should totally make it a masquerade party because I have a great craft for you today.
This is probably one of the most fun paper crafts I have ever done. It’s also one of the easiest. Simple and fun always make a great combo. These masquerade masks are very customizable, so gather up some shiny embellishments and let’s make one together!
- Heavy Cardstock (black, gold and silver are usually associated with New Year’s Eve, but any combination of shiny or glittery colors will work)
- Paper Glue or Spray Adhesive
- Embellishments like sequins, feathers, glitter, or gems

STEP ONE: CHOOSE AND IMPORT DESIGN
This particular mask was the perfect size when I opened it in Silhouette Studio®, so it didn’t require resizing. The design has 2 layers so after selecting all of it. I ungrouped them so I could cut out 2 different colors—black for the background and gold for the top layer.
STEP TWO: CUT AND GLUE LAYERS TOGETHER
Cut each layer out separately on your CAMEO or your Portrait and glue them together.
I used a spray adhesive. It was the fastest and most efficient way to do it with all of the small cuts.
STEP THREE: EMBELLISH YOUR MASK
This step is totally optional, since it already looks great with the color combo. If you choose to add some bling, now is the time. So, go crazy with the sparkly stuff!
STEP FOUR: SHOW IT OFF!
Once you’re finished, you can add some elastic to wear it hands free, or hot glue it to a skinny dowel. (Or a wooden skewer colored with a black permanent marker works great too!)
That’s all there is to it! Not too difficult, was it?
What’s your New Year’s Eve party theme this year?
