To create your own template, use your computer printer to print the number 8 in a very large font on a piece of paper. Trim around the 8, fold paper in half, and trim again to make into a symmetrical shape, cutting out the center of the 8 for eye holes.

Create decorative patterns on the foam with pen (test any pen on scrap foam prior to drawing on mask). This can be done prior to or after applying flowers and other embellishments.
