In Home Entertainment: Dia de los Muertos Masks

We've been a bit waterlogged out here on the east coast, so our posts are going to be arts & crafts intensive for a while. We actually made these Dia de los Muertos masks a few weeks ago, but the holiday starts tomorrow. Mom is obsessed with having a Day of the Dead/Halloween birthday party, although no one has taken the bait yet. Oh well. We had a good time making these masks from a Paper Source kit, but mom suggests having a parent or older child help cut out some of the necessary decorations ahead of time (with a circle punch if you have one). These are certainly doable without a kit, but mom is incapable of going into Paper Source without a purchase occurring (and, given everything she could have bought, all of which we know would be entirely necessary, this was pretty useful). We think they came out spooky and pretty at the same time!
