The Masquerade mask is done!!!

Whew!!!! I just finished up the mask that matches my daughters dress for the Father/Daughter Banquet! I'm pretty happy how it turned out. Nothing too over the top but I think it's just perfect for her dress. I did a little research online and looked at some decorated masks. I took a few ideas and voila---the finished product. I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY love it.
(Here's her mask. The black plastic mask originally had elastic band. I removed it and added the decorated dowel rod. This made it easier for her to use.)

And all I used was  a plastic mask, wide & narrow ribbon, feathers, a dowel rod, decorative crystals and a hot glue gun. I practically most everything from Wal-Mart and in the kids craft section with exception of the feathers which I purchased from Jo-Ann's.
 (Working on a hancock fabric ad on my cutting table. Here's all of the supplies. I swear I dripped glue everywhere. I really enjoyed playing with the glue gun.)

 I didn't realize "mask making" was so fun. I have 3 more left in the package and would love to use those for craft time with the "Wee-One" especially since she didn't get to help me at all with this one. She's off getting her beauty sleep for school and the banquet tomorrow evening. I peeked in to check on her while sleeping and this is what I saw.....
She was passed out sleep.............on her knees. I had to turn the light on for a pic! It's so funny when I catch her like this. I honestly don't know how she assumes this position. So funny!!!

Anywho---tomorrow is the banquet and I have 2 small thing to do on her dress and I'm done. I'll post the finished pics of my daughter's dress and mask then. I can't wait. I know I may be a bit over the top with excitement but I LOVE Special Occassion sewing!!! Nothing better than making fancy dresses. Well I'm off to get my beauty sleep. Unlike my daughter though, I'll be sure to stay in bed! LOL!
