Customer demand has led to me creating colour your own mask kits for the 2020 holiday season! (Hopefully a vaccine will be found sooner rather than later and we won’t need these next year.) The kits make great stocking stuffers, or the masks can be decorated as one-of-a-kind gifts to be given by kids and adults alike, or they can be a family activity to add some creativity and colour to a grey winter day.
The non-medical masks in the kits conform to the current guidelines from the Government of Canada: they are three layers, 100% cotton on the outside sandwiching a layer of non-woven polypropylene in the middle. For the greatest amount of comfort, the ties are made from stretchy T-shirt fabric and are adjustable. Adult and child sizes are available.
The masks lie flat except where they are shaped by darts at the nose and chin. This allows for easy colouring. The design and three-layer construction also helps keep the fabric from touching the face (except where the edges create a seal), which many find more comfortable, especially if they are prone to claustrophobia.
INDIVIDUAL KIT $25
Each individual kit contains one handmade non-medical mask, four permanent fabric markers, and instructions. The kit comes ready to gift in in recyclable packaging. Kit may be ordered in child/teen and adult size. There are five different colourways to choose from (please specify which you’d prefer at the time of ordering).
FAMILY PACK $90
The family pack is your best value, with four masks (in any size combination, because families come in all shapes and sizes), twenty markers, and instructions.
SINGLE MASK $15
Perhaps you already have all of the fabric markers you could ever need, or perhaps your family is more than four people. Whatever the reason, you can order a single mask with no markers for $15.
Free curbside pick-up or delivery in the east end of Ottawa.
Alternately, shipping is via Canada Post to anywhere in Canada. I’d encourage orders that are to be shipped this way to be made early because Canada Post has warned that shipping is likely to be slower than usual this holiday season.
Individual kits and single masks shipping (each): $3.50
Family packs shipping (each): $5.50
