Who’s ready to make a Steve Head mask for a Minecraft Costume?!

Minecraft Costume Steve Head

Follow my directions, and you can too!!!

What you need

  • White card stock
  • Laminator (optional)
  • Color printer
  • Craft lite cutter, paper cutter, or sharp scissors
  • Razor blade or exacto knife
  • Straight edge ruler
  • Clear packing tape
  • Sharpie

Before I begin, I just want to say, I have a laminating machine, which is one of the greatest things in my craft box right now!  I decided to use it to reinforce the cardstock for this mask, which was a great decision!

The first thing you need to do is follow this link: http://www.fps-x-games.com/2013/06/free-minecraft-steve-head-printable-mask.html to print the Steve head mask template.  (FYI: it says to print on A4 size paper, but I used 8.5×11 white cardstock.  Not as big as a4, but a great fit for my son’s head.) To print other templates like a weapon or the diamond necklace, follow this link: http://www.fps-x-games.com/.

 Once printed, I laminated each page, which was an awesome idea because I didn’t need to glue the template onto a cardboard box!!!  With card stock and lamination, this mask is very sturdy.

Then, I used my Craft Light Cutter to cut off the white edges and add creases to all the dotted lines.  The Craft Light Cutter has been another amazing tool I’ve had for years!  Not only does it assist in cutting straight lines, it also has an assortment of attachments, like folds, perforations and waved edges of a few sorts.

Now, it’s time to cut out the eyes. Using your razor blade or Exacto knife and a straight edge ruler, line it up along the blue edge of the eyes.  Holding the ruler steady, firmly cut out each blue square.
