Get some chipboard to support the mask- an old cereal box is a great way to repurpose and recycle if you don't have chipboard handy. Cut it a little bigger than your mask, set aside for now

Rough cut out a mask. The cool thing about Coredinations is that it has a white core. So take an embossing folder and either emboss it, or cheat like I did and run the end of pen over it!

Now take your block sander and run it over the embossing for a cool designed distress look. Of course if you don't have an embossing folder you can skip this part and just sand the edges

Run your mask through a Xyron Creative Station. The creative station runs a nice layer of adhesive over it. If you don't have one, you can use glue or double sided tape to attach to chipboard

To cover the bamboo skewer, I rolled washi tape over it. If you don't have washi tape you can also use the Colorbox ink to color the skewer.
