Step 2: Sketch a blueprint around the plate of what you need the veil to resemble. Painstakingly cut along the veil blueprint and eye openings. Paste enlivening things and trim to the front of the veil; let dry.

Step 3: Make a gap with a paper punch on each side of the veil near the edge of the plate. Cut a length of versatile cording to fit around your head, leaving in any event 6 inches extra. String the cording through each opening, and tie off on each side.

You can add a nose or mouth to any veil with a 6-3/4-inch paper plate.

Step 2: Cut a 1/2-inch cut at the highest point of the nose bend on the veil plate.
