Determine the type of mask that you intend toTo do. A variant in the form of an oval is possible, if the mask is supposed to completely cover the face. Another form is a mask in the form of an elongated figure, designed only to cover the eye area.
Take a sheet of colored cardboard and a pencil. On the back of the cardboard draw an outline of the mask. If necessary, use a compass and a ruler. Pay special attention to the estimated size of the mask. It should be a few inches more than the face.

With uneven shapes, these are the dimensions of the longest diameter. With glue, glue them at the middle to the already cut mask. Allow the glue to dry.
While glue dries up, take a few stripsFrom different colored paper about 2 centimeters wide. Slice them in length in the form of thin noodles of 3-5 millimeters so that one end of the noodles obtained is uncut.
Take the scissors, open them and draw the sharp part of the blade flat on the back side of the noodle tips, so that they twist.
Uncut its part glue to the sides of the mask outside. To hide the places of gluing, glue flowers made from colored paper on top of them by overlaying them.
Using the same technology as when twisting the tips of multi-colored noodles, round the loose halves of hearts, circles and other details that are not glued to the mask.
