Cat Masks Printables and Paper Craft

 

This month’s coloring tribe challenge was to create cat coloring pages. I wanted to challenge myself further, and created these cat masks printables – including a free printable adult coloring version for you to enjoy! Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links.

These papercraft masks are available as adult coloring pages or as color-in crafts for kids, or even as a full color printable paper craft - and it's easy too!

 

Since I created these as part of our free coloring page hop, I decided to offer the first page that I created free of charge.

Note: all of these downloads will open in a new tab so that you are not redirected away from the instructions below!

I also created two cat masks printables bonus bundles:

  1. A color-in bundle that contains another beautiful adult coloring design, two simpler kids versions (or adults can add their own detail!), and the plain template so that you can create your own designs, and use it with card stock, or pretty scrapbook paper. This packet ALSO comes with the free printable version, so that you don’t need to download it separately.

  2. A full color version that contains one with beautiful detail added, one more cat-like design, and the two adult coloring ones with color added in the background only.

I assembled the ears in two different ways. One is more straightforward but it bends back a bit.

The second way, with the center of the ear folded in a valley fold, takes the shape of an ear more, but it will be slightly more challenging to assemble.

I’d recommend going easier for younger kids, and going harder if you’re up for the challenge!

You can finish off these cat masks printables with a paper straw or wooden dowel to hold it in place, making it more of a photo prop, or with an elastic so that you can wear it hands-free.

 

These are full sized masks, so if you’re printing it for kids, you can reduce the scale a bit and print at 75% or something like that.

I also played around with different craft materials for the whiskers. You might want to leave those off entirely, if you want to showcase the art aspect more. But if you want to get really crafty, and have options, you can play with feathers, yarn, or cotton twine to create whiskers.

 

I used these markers to color in the bottom mask pictured above (which is the one you get free) and added a little blending. For the design with the really small spaces I highly recommend this marker.

7. Glue your ears in place, curving them with the shape of the mask. If you didn’t fold your ear in half, they will tilt backwards. If you did, you will need to pinch it a bit in the center bottom and curve it along the edge, playing it by ear a little (no pun intended…)
