I want people to know the joy and importance of making masks that are now in trouble.
- coffee filter
- glue or double-sided tape
- Rubber for mask
If you don’t have rubber for the mask, I will introduce how to make a substitute that can be made with familiar items.
Make a mask shape with a coffee filter
I think you can get a lot of white and brown coffee filters cheaply.
Flip the open side of the coffee filter and apply a thin layer of glue or double-sided tape to the edges.
After applying the adhesive until the end, close it and gently trace with your finger to stick it.
Leave it a little until the adhesive sticks.
If the adhesive sticks to some extent, fold the edge of the coffee filter inward about 5 mm.
Use scissors to cut the edge of the coffee filter that originally stuck.
Also cut the opposite end. For small children, cut it into smaller pieces according to the size of your face.
I want to have the mask on the other side, so I cut it into a slightly curved shape. You can cut it straight, make it more curved, or cut it in any shape you like.
Cut the bottom of the coffee filter straight with scissors.
Create a 3D mask shape
Finally you open from where you cut. It’s approaching the shape of a mask.Apply it to your face, look in the mirror, and if you want a smaller mask, close it again and cut it to make it smaller. It cannot be larger than this. . .
Gently press on the backside with the bond to make the mask three-dimensional.
Please make the three-dimensional mask slowly and carefully while making the shape of the joint beautiful.
Pass the mask rubber
Fold the side edge of the coffee filter mask about 1 cm to make a crease.
Apply a thin adhesive to the end.
Put the mask rubber around the fold.
If you fold the end with the adhesive on it, you will wrap the mask string. Do the same for both ends.
The rubber of the mask is attached to both ends. If you pull the rubber on the mask at this time and it moves, you are good at it. Please be careful not to pull the string too much and pull it out.
Lightly tie the rubber on the mask. Once you put on the mask and check if the length of the string is good, tie it tightly.
Use scissors to cut off the extra part of the rubber tip of the tied mask.
It will turn when you pull the rubber on the mask, so pull it until the knot can cover the mask hole.
In this way, when the rubber knot on the mask disappears, you are done. Please attach the rubber of the mask to both ends in the same way.
A coffee filter mask that is easy to use but solid. Because it is a coffee filter, it won’t break even if it gets wet with water.
I tried wearing it immediately. You can make larger masks by using a larger coffee filter, or you can make smaller masks for smaller children.
