Big Nose Masks - Recycle School Photos

If you are anything like me, it's least expensive to order the big pack of school pictures.  But, this always leaves us with lots of extras in odd sizes.  Especially the size that is too big for wallet and too small to frame.  I was inspired by the funny book Nose Masks to try to do something with these extra school pictures.
I took one of the pictures and put it on a cutting board, with an exacto knife I cut a roundish triangle in the face starting at the bridge of the nose.  Start small, you can always make the hole bigger, but you can't undo what you've cut out!  It took a few tries until I had a really funny mask for Holly to wear with her brother's face on it.
You know, this might make a great Christmas card photo if I make big nose masks for everyone and we wear each other.  Even our chihuahua...


  1. That is HI-larious! Where did you come up with that?

  2. And my little chihuahua actually let me put it on her face. Isn't she a good dog?

  3. Wow, that's great. I can say, you really thinking outside of the box.. Recycling school photos is fun. :)
