Scissorcraft contains thousands of images, personally illustrated. Scissorcraft color book and craft images may be used as teacher's aid for classroom overhead display or personal enjoyment at home with family and friends.

 

Large images appear only after paid membership is established through PayPal.

To all members who honor me by finding value in my work through paid membership, I thank you so very much for helping me regain my creative insanity by allowing me to purge advertising and SEO nightmares from these pages.  

 

I constantly revisit these images to update and refresh or replace the old and funky.  

A while back I realized that I was spinning wheels and running like a hamster to appease the unappeasable demands of advertisers and had almost forgotten the reason behind creating these sites.  Scissorcraft is my tiny space in virtual-land where I play to satiate an insatiable desire to illustrate for no apparent reason.    

 

Bonus: to my knowledge none of my images have ever spontaneously exploded and are not banned on airplanes.

Mardi Gras Paper Carnival Masks

003mardigrasiconMardi Gras is a French term meaning "Fat Tuesday" and falls on the day before Ash Wednesday. People like to celebrate the Mardi Gras carnival by holding parades, parties and wearing colorful masks, costumes and beads.

Cities that hold famous Mardi Gras celebrations include New Orleans, Louisiana, Mobile, Alabama and Sydney, Australia. You wouldn't know by watching the parades and wild behavior of pie-eyed party participants, but Mardi Gras is a religious celebration. The festivities begin on or after Epiphany and wind up on the day before Ash Wednesday. Fat Tuesday refers to the practice stuffing yourself silly on the last night before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season (penitential season of Lent).

"Fat Tuesday" Masks

Decorate your full or half face Mardi Gras mask with cut and paste shapes, brightly colored paints, feathers, sequins, and paper or fabric trimmings.  Traditional Mardi Gras Colors were established in 1892 by Rex, the King of Carnival. 

  • Purple for justice
  • Green for faith
  • Gold for power


Liven up the party with these over sized paper.

mardi gras beads that children can print, color and tape together to make large wall hangings or decorative garlands.  Mix and match different sizes and shapes of the paper beads ranging from squares, ovals, inverted ovals and circles, plus some really cool Fleur De lis paper chain cutouts to add for special flair.
