  1. I think I would start with Prim! A little bit of everything for men , ladies and kids! I like this type of mask and ordered the template

    1. The small size may work for older children. It is not intended for children- it is more like an adult small!

  2. Just ordered the template. Has anyone tried to make a loop out of a longer piece of elastic and run it through a sleeve so that the whole side is elasticized? How did that work out ?

  3. When I first saw this template, I knew I had to get it. It helped tremendously as it is super easy to use for all sizes of face masks.
    My six and eight year old grandkids wear the small and my ten and 12 year old ones wear the medium. Also made plenty of medium and large for adults. I love Creative Grids rulers and so glad they came up with this Face Mask Template!

  4. Please if you’re responsible and care about your children and their future, don’t encourage waste and pollution, that have doubled since March. Already tons of masks,gloves, and plastic bags contaminating our Planet. this is not how intelligent or sane people handle it.
    It is spitting in the well
