Dia de los Muertos / Sugar Skulls

I have a slight fascination with sugar skulls – the designs, colors, patterns, and what they stand for. So in celebration of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) this upcoming weekend, I thought I’d try my hand at making them. I picked up this “little packet o’ fun” from Paper Source a few weeks ago – Sugar Skull Mask Kit – and wanted to make a tutorial out of it. Also, why does Paper Source smell so darn good?

The kit actually makes 6 masks, and comes with pretty much everything you need. I totally felt like a 6 year old kid sitting on the floor of art class making these, and I have to say, it was fun. I’ll definitely be making a couple more to add to my collection. Here’s a close up of the two that I did:
