First of all, you have to hold the corner of the paper and fold it as you can see in the image below and then flatten it well.
Step 3: Overlap the First Fold by Second Fold to Create Paper Mask
Once the corner folding is done similarly you have to fold the paper from the other end and then make a proper crease on it.
Note: These creases are very important as this will decide how your mask will turn out.
Step 4: Fold the Paper from the Tip
Once the corner folding is done hold the tip of the paper and once again fold the paper downside as you can see in the image below. While folding be patient else might it will damage the whole mask.
Step 5: Amazing Fourth Folding to Make a Mask
Once one side top folding is done then similarly, as above you have to fold the paper from the other side. So, you can see a kind of triangle paper as shown in the image below.
Step 6: Make Fold from the Bottom
Finally, open all the foldings and you can see cross marks at the centre of the paper due to all foldings. Hold the bottom of the paper and fold it till the cross the mark and then flatten it.
Step 7: Make Fold According to the Crease Line
Further, Flip the paper and here you can see all creases. Now, make the first fold from the tip till first line crease and make another fold following second-line crease as shown in the image given below.
Step 8: Fold the Corner Inside of the Paper
Hold the corner and slowly push it inside as you can see in the image below. It is very simple to do just push it slowly and then flatten it.
Step 9: Flip the Paper and Fold it again according to the Crease Line
Now flip the paper and here you can see a crease at the tip so now fold it again according to the line.
Step 10: Eighth Folding to Create an Easy Paper Mask
Once all the above folding is done, then again do foldings following the crease as you can see in the image below.
Step 11: The Most Important Folding Is the Ninth Folding to Create a Paper Mask
Further, once all of the above foldings are done, open the craft from the centre and you can see small pieces of paper popping out. Now, fold that small piece of paper towards the inside. Once inside folding is done then fold the paper again as shown in the image below.
Step 12: Attaching Regular Rubber to Create a Paper Mask
You can choose any kind of rubber band to attach it. Finally, all folding is done and you can see your paper mask is almost ready. Now, take two pieces of rubber and insert into the wings which are popping out. Further, apply a little glue and stick to one corner of the craft and stick to the wing.
